It was the perfect Colorado summer afternoon when we met for our family portrait photo session in the park. Ruby was a natural model—calm, cool and collected with her pal Sophie within arms reach, ready to shove her in her mouth. With two new teeth about to surface, you can understand Ruby’s desire to chew on a squeaky rubber giraffe.

I will admit, I am obsessed with baby's feet. They are the cutest!

Ruby learned all her yoga moves from mom.

"Hmm? What is this thing they call a face?"

Thanks for a fun Sunday afternoon in the park.
