Luca (3) and Rhys (8 months)... / by Julie Cruz

I've had the pleasure of photographing this family since Luca was just a few days old. He just turned 3, and this was my 4th shoot with them....and this time I got to meet his baby brother, Rhys! :) Both of these boys are just SO darn adorable. Luca chatted my ear off the whole shoot...and I LOVED it. He is such a fun and silly boy....not to mention drop dead gorgeous. I've told his parents since his newborn shoot that something about him reminds me of Superman...and it's still true. Rhys is 8 months old now and wasn't quite sure what to think about being in a random field, in a crate (which Luca decided he should squeeze into as well ;) haha), etc. He's starting to get some adorable little pumpkin teeth...and I love that stage! I'd say the weather was our only challenge that day. One second it would be totally grey/dark, and the next, the sun would be SO bright that we were all squinting. Lots of camera setting changes, back and forth, but at least it wasn't freezing or super hot :)
