It’s a small world in Virginia Beach, even smaller between the Filipino community, and Facebook makes it almost microscopic, so needless to say, we’ve been really blessed as far as referrals go. A lot of times, the prospective clients that come to us know more than 4 of our former clients.  Joyce happened to be a fan on our Facebook page as well as a good friend of the Cabatit’s (and about 30 other mutual friends).

I scheduled their session at 9:30am thinking that mornings were optimal for little kids, plus it wouldn’t be too warm, but man, was I wrong! It was HOT.   The kind of heat that multiplies all the indigineous city smells (in this case:  garbage, hobo urine, and seawater).   In typical Tidewater fashion, two days later, the weather was a gorgeous 75 degrees.  Sigh.

Nonetheless, Joyce, Ian and their son Ethan showed up looking fab!  I am loving all these hip, well-dressed families, for real! I heart the purple accents with grey color palette:

Says Ethan –  “Ethan tired!”  Aww.

Mama time:

We saved the awesome new dancing fountains for last hoping it would cheer him up and I’d get a smile or two.   He really liked them, but he was so fascinated that he just stood and stared at it, not moving:

These photos were taken seconds apart.  Note the barely changed expression:

Little E, lookin’ sharp!

Being that I wasn’t able to get E to crack a smile even once, Joyce and I agreed to attempt this one more time when the weather was nicer.   I’m determined to get some happy looking pics of this cutie pie, so stay tuned for part 2 sometime in the coming weeks!
