Theo and his Mom have been working hard lately. They love to keep their home in tip-top shape but they also love to stop and enjoy those sweet moments of together time. As his Mom kept marveling at just how grown up her little boy was becoming, she knew she wanted to capture what their lives were like right now, while he was still little. So I went over and spent the morning with them and photographed all the little things they like to do together during a Mommy and Me Session.
Little ones often need some time to warm up, especially when I pull out my huge camera. This serious moment happened right after Theo and I met.
So Mom thought we’d break the ice with one of Theo’s favorite activities, a little fun time with mom in the living room.
I had my heart in my throat when I captured this, but Mom just caught her little boy with ease.
When they both needed a moment to catch their breath, Theo climbed up into his momma’s lap. Not sure what the secret he shared here was, but it made his momma smile.
A little later, Theo ran into the kitchen and hid behind the table. Mom chased after him and caught him up in a big hug under this sunny window.
Having such a great time giggling on the floor together during this Mommy and Me session.
While we were in the kitchen, Theo and Mom thought I’d love to see how they have renovated their little home all by themselves. Theo was great with the power screwdriver and helped his mom tighten up the handles on a few of their cabinets.
Pretty soon, Mom heard the dryer signal that it was all done. While she went off to retrieve their next chore, Theo grabbed the towel off of the counter and began showing off his folding skills.
When we ventured upstairs to do a bit of laundry, Theo mentioned that he was getting warm. So Mom helped him out of his sweater and into a comfy t-shirt. He got the giggles while she pulled his shirt over his arms.
But before Theo let her put that new shirt on, he needed another bit of loving from his Mom.
She couldn’t resist turning that hug into a tickle session, which ended with this sweet moment.
Once all of the chores were done and Theo was dressed again, we decided to wind down with some storytime on the bed. Theo was the one that did the reading!
And finally, at the end, Theo and his mom crawled under the covers to hide from me. Theo was so surprised when I threw up the sheet and found them. Such a sweet smile from them both.
I had a great time hanging out with these two, and we did all of this in about 45 minutes.
