I had the pleasure of meeting some old friends’ son for the first time this week, and man is he adorable. I know it seems so cliche to say adorable, but really it is true. This little man is the definition of adorable.

Nearly six years to the date, I photographed my friends’ destination wedding in the Florida Keys. Now they have a handsome little boy, Axel. He is one of the most outgoing two-year olds I have met in a long time. His eyes are as blue as the deep sea, which is very fitting since he spent most of his life near the ocean in California. Last June, his family moved back to Colorado to work on their skiing and give surfing a break for awhile.

In between photographing business head shots of Axel’s dad,  I couldn’t help but snap these few.

Those eyes—he is a heart breaker!

I haven't seen Axel on a surf board, but I am sure he will be a natural since he comes from athletic genes, but he sure was into his truck.

Life at two is not complete without snacks.

Thanks for a fun afternoon Axel. I look forward to seeing you again very soon.
