Portrait Session with Brant (Baltimore, Maryland) / by Erika Sneeringer

It was such a pleasure photographing Brant to document his recent milestone of turning 2. You might remember this adorable smile from his family photo session I did last fall.  If you missed that one, you can check it out here.  

Last fall Brant was quiet, cute and very cooperative with the camera. It was easy because Brant would light up smiling at his big sister.  This time, it was just Brant and his dad.  We met at a local park and it turned out to be a gorgeous morning.  Brant has grown so much in the last few months since I last saw him.  He was just as cooperative and he was quick to smile for my camera.  However, this time around Brant was no longer the quiet little boy he once was.  He was very chatty and it was adorable!  Brant was so inquisitive and I had a blast chasing him around watching him enjoy the outdoors. Cylburn is a goldmine for little kids -- they always have so much fun collecting sticks, finding monkey balls and smelling the array of flowers.

My favorite part about photographing Brant was when I would ask him to smile big for the camera. He would take a huge breath, throw his arms up and his head back, then hold his breath -- it was like he was turning into the Hulk or something!  

I can’t wait until next time!
