Liam turns THREE! | {Tacoma Family Photography}

tacoma-family-photos0001This dapper little guy is Liam…and he was turning three, which is the perfect time to schedule a session!tacoma-family-photos0002I love this little guy and have had so much fun watching him grow up…tacoma-family-photos0003…and I love watching his family grow, too!  Of course, gratefully, since we are all close friends I don’t have to wait for sessions to hang out with these guys…but, that friendship makes the sessions extra special to me!tacoma-family-photos0004Steve and Yuri have their blessing buckets full with these two…and, I am sure once they get a little older and everyone is sleeping through the night, they will look back on this time with fond memories!tacoma-family-photos0005Liam is an exceptional little boy!  He LOVES music!tacoma-family-photos0006And…he has perfect pitch!  You should hear this kid sing…or better yet, you should watch him as he watches and recites, sings, and acts out every scene from “The Sound Of Music”.  It’s impressive!tacoma-family-photos0007You can see how he thought this was a microphone!  His dad is one of our worship leaders at church, so he isn’t a stranger to a mic!tacoma-family-photos0008We didn’t forget about Charlie…she was not exactly in the mood to be photographed…but, she was in the mood to explore!
tacoma-family-photos0009Liam, too, really just wanted to run around and have some fun….
