That Rat Tail Though {Dallas Family Photography}

One thing I always like to ask parents of young children is, “What ‘thing’ can I capture that you most want to remember about this stage?”  There are always little quirks, new tricks, stages, and milestones.  I can take pictures of things I see – their laughter, silly faces, the small size of their hand in yours, etc, but I always want to make sure that I try to capture those elusive bits of childhood that makes each child unique.

I got two answers from the parents at this beautiful family session – 1.) get their son’s AWESOME dinosaur chant 2.) capture that precious little “rat tail” curl on the back of his head (double points if it glistened in the sun)  How awesome is that??  We were able to get both and it made me so happy!

Take a peek at their gorgeous family images – this little guy was the HAPPIEST boy ever!
