matthew + family

the last time I photographed this family, matthew (now 2 years old), was cozy inside mama’s belly. my goodness, time flies! seems to be a theme around these parts, huh?

we spent a lovely overcast summer morning playing outside; a cool breeze hinting at encroaching autumn. matthew and his family are so full of love, so full of affection. his parents grew up doing musical theater, and I think it is fair to say the genetic trait of embracing the limelight runs strong with this little boy.

I try not to get overly excited at the notion of  the fact that there were already dried leaves falling to the  ground. but I’ll just go ahead and say it: bring on all things cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg!
