Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Tristan and Declan, ages 1 and 3. The Molloy family is familiar with having professional pictures, however, this is the first session now that Tristan is mobile. Chasing around 2 curious young boys kept everyone busy.
I met the Molloy family at Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, Maryland. We decided we should meet sometime in September, when the temperatures aren’t as blistering hot as the middle of summer. We had no idea that summer had no intention of leaving just because it is September. The morning of our shoot the temperature was 95 degrees and rising by 10:00a.m. The Molloys were all such good sports running around outside on such a hot day. The boys did not seem to notice.
Tristan, who is about 16 months old, is such a happy boy, always posing and smiling for the camera while trying to keep up with his big brother. Declan, enjoying his threenager year, was very proud to have an important task at hand. He was responsible for scouting out benches and rocks.
In between bench hunting, the boys took a short play break. I snapped some pictures of them enjoying one of their favorite activities, playing ball. Whether it be tossing a football or kicking around a soccer ball, they both felt right at home as they played.
