Filed in engagements, portraits shot by on at

Breanne and Shawn are getting married in September, and like many of our wedding clients who have children, they wanted their adorable son, Aiden, to be a part of their engagement session. So, we just gave them a family session instead! :)

To start out, we grabbed a few shots in front of the Carousel Museum in North Tonawanda – definitely one of our favorite spots for photos!

the Carousel Museum in North Tonawanda is a great place for family portraits

Aiden happens to be at a very “wiggly” age, so it was pretty tough to get a portrait with everyone looking directly at the camera, but I really liked this shot of Ben’s, anyway.  :)

After the Carousel Museum, we headed over to the canal area in NT, where Aiden did some table dancing for us!  Just kidding, just kidding….we bribed him with chocolate to get that handsome smile.

What’s that in your mouth, Aiden?  An M&M, perhaps?  ;)

I LOVE this one!!  So cute!

We walked around the park a little, and took some fun “playing around with Mom” shots!

This is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.  We asked Breanne and Shawn if they’d like to do a more “engagement session-y” shot, and they did, so we set one up, and then Aiden popped into the shot, looking up curiously at what was going on!  Isn’t that just the cutest thing?  I love it.

Breanne and Shawn (and Aiden, too, of course) – thanks so much for hangin’ out with us by the water! We had a great time chasing you around with our cameras! :) Looking forward to the wedding!

    I love the shots you took at the picnic table. These are photos that will be treasured for the moments you captured and the expressions of love for each other that I saw in them.

    I fear that Aiden has outshown his parents, although they are a very close second. Fine shots of a beautiful family.
