What an adorable little man Malachi is! Shandon has been a good friend of ours for quite some time, and when she reached out to schedule a photo session for Malachi’s 2nd birthday, there was nothing but excitement on our end! This little boy is so charming and has some of the cutest faces we’ve ever seen! It was so much fun walking through Lineberger Park in Gastonia, NC.

Malachi is currently in LOVE with trains! So it was only fitting that we started off the session riding the little train at the park to put him in the best of moods! And we scheduled the session at the perfect time, just before the train closed, and just before the huge storm! The skies were nice and overcast for beautifully saturated photos, and the nice train lady, Linda, let us have a few moments on the track before they put the train to sleep for the night. After the train shots, we walked down towards the creek and finished with some super cute photos of Malachi sitting on the rocks, playing in the water. We’re so excited to share some of our favorites!
