Sassy Seven Year Old Shayden!

We've known Joe for many years, since he was just plain Joe.  Over the years, he has become Joseph, hairdresser to the rich and famous, as well as an amazing artist!  He's been a great friend, and we were as excited as anyone when he got together with the wonderful Mavourneen and they had a little baby boy, Shayden.  For the past seven years, we have had the pleasure of photographing this adorable, energetic and sweet boy! Can't you just see the mischievous streak in those baby blues?

Being seven means being busy and never sitting still for a moment, and Shayden is all of that!  Seven means being curious and fearless in trying anything - and that describes Shayden too!

Shayden is also a happy, polite and articulate little boy - and a complete joy to work with!

You can't help but be charmed by this little guy - those eyes, that hair! And it's no wonder... you should see his dad! Can you see the resemblance?

When Shayden's session was finished, Joseph rushed over to give his little guy some Daddy love - so we just kept the shutter clicking and caught some precious moments between father and son.  We couldn't help ourselves!

Watching this very special relationship in action, we thought we would love to take the boys out to the Upper Newport Bay and take some photos of the two of them doing something they love to do together - and that is riding their bikes.  So on a beautiful afternoon, we met Joseph and Shayden among the flowers on the trail and brought our camera along to capture the action.

They are quite the pair, Joe and Shayden! It was wonderful to watch them interact. They have such a fun-loving and refreshing relationship. Equal parts family and buddies. They are so lucky to have each other.  And we are so lucky to have them in our lives!
