When clients ask me what to expect from a photo shoot, I always tell them to dress comfortably, be themselves, and just plan on having fun for about an hour or so.
Instead of posing people and making everyone smile at the camera, I encourage them to just "be" with each other. And once people are able to relax, that's when the magic happens. The Zitek family seemed pretty relaxed from the get go. And Maddox was seriously one of the most content little guys I've ever photographed. He was smiling and happy throughout the entire shoot, and these photos just exude love. Can't help smiling looking at these.
