chrisbodnarphoto This little monkey loves sitting on my shoulders while I run around the studio like a madman. He also loves pulling my hair - or what I have left of it, at least. I think my face makes it's pretty clear that I'm extremely fond of him and his silliness, hair pulling and all! #adventureswithmighty 6d

chrisbodnarphoto Lachlan's new favourite thing is being carried around in bright warm sunlight, chasing shadows and kicking his legs the way a 100m sprinter would. We have a summer baby (and potential soccer player!) on our hands, folks, and Dada couldn't be any happier! #adventureswithmighty 1w

chrisbodnarphoto Happy sunny Saturday, Toronto! I hope all of you locals went out to breathe new air, explore your city, and re-visit all of your favourite places you've missed over this dreadful winter! While this shot is @tara_mcmullen overlooking #LA, it might as well be #TO. :) 1w

chrisbodnarphoto The 1.5hr drive in bumper-to-bumper traffic from Santa Monica to #ElMatador was totally worth it. Damn you, #SoCal , for being so stunning. It also helps that my family is so damn beautiful! 2w

chrisbodnarphoto Sometimes, this little noodle has a bit of a rough morning. On those days I typically wake up cranky and exhausted (like today, at about 5AM)
I typically find myself wanting to act out on our little fella, which makes me feel terrible

Then I remember that he's not being mean, or angry, or selfish - he's just letting me know that he needs me. He needs some snuggles. Needs some love. I'm happy to give him more than he can handle, which typically makes him a tad more cranky

It's in those moments that I try to remind myself of mornings like the one above, where we woke up early to watch the sunrise at #venicepier . Seeing this little face smile at the ocean for the first time - then turn to smile and laugh at us - makes every cranky morning wake-up at home completely worth it

  •   tara_mcmullen Our little Petunia Tinklebottom is definitely challenging us lately. Thank you for knowing that his needing us is a grand compliment and gift. There will be a day soon enough when he won't need us, and we'll miss his goofy early mornings. He loves his dada! 2w
  •   awagnerphoto He is so sweet. It is easy (especially while sleep deprived) to react unfavourably in the moments when it feels like the whining or challenges never let up... But @tara_mcmullen is a wise woman. Those words are constantly what I have to remind myself and my husband of: she wants us, she needs us, and we will long for this time one day. Have either of you tried the Wonder Weeks app? It tracks the leaps of growth and development babies go through week by week and stand as a guide for knowing when they will be showing signs of crankiness etc. I've found this app helps my husband especially to gage and understand her signs while she's in a leap, growing into some newly learned abilities. 2w
  •   chrisbodnarphoto @awagnerphoto yes yes and yes! We have that app, too - we've been using it since he was just a wee one, and it's so incredibly helpful (and surprisingly accurate!). Everything little thing that helps is appreciated ... Patience truly is a virtue when your heart lives on the outside, isn't it? :) 2w

chrisbodnarphoto Loving Momma. Lachlan's cute little toosh. Beach. Pacific Ocean blue. These are a few of my absolute favourite things! #adventureswithmighty 3w

chrisbodnarphoto Little noodle! You are 6 months today. SIX. MONTHS. I still barely believe it! In those few short months, you've not only been the happiest + silliest + most patient babe, but you've made me the happiest + silliest + most patient man and father. You're laughing + giggling almost every second you're awake, and you continue to smile when you're sleeping. You even laugh when you cry, which makes me laugh even harder! I know I can't stop tickling you, and I know that you sometimes get agitated when I do, but I won't stop. Ever. Speaking of stopping ... Can you stop growing so fast, please? We all love you. Daddy loves you. Let's make the next 6 months completely fun + silly + total bananas, shall we? #adventureswithmighty 4w

chrisbodnarphoto Like father, like son. We can't get enough of these insanely tasty #sprinkles ice cream sandwiches! When you're older, kid. When you're older. ( Photo by @tara_mcmullen ) 1mon

chrisbodnarphoto This place. His face. This kid is just a couple days shy of his first half-birthday. Other parents have always said time flies by ... But who knew they would all be so right? Lachlan has been SO much fun on this trip, and I have a feeling that LA will always be a special place for our little family. #adventureswithmighty 1mon

chrisbodnarphoto LA has been so incredible so far. Exploring this - our neighbourhood of Santa Monica -has been down right awesome. If my Dad was on Instagram, I'd thank him a million times over for allowing us to use his condo ... Not to mention this killer ocean view every single evening. 1mon

chrisbodnarphoto It's International Women's Day, and this lady right here deserves such big accolades. An incredible Mama, a loving + supporting + understanding partner, an awesome travel companion, and a supporter of all things living and breathing (especially the underprivileged types). It's going to be SO nice spending the next 3 weeks here in Santa Monica/LA/etc together ... Relaxing, swimming, exploring, introducing Lachlan to the sun + ocean + warm breeze, and - most importantly - creating family memories of laughter + fun. #McMullenBodnarLAadventure #adventureswithmighty 1mon

chrisbodnarphoto Since @tara_mcmullen + I run 3 seperate businesses (so far!), we often find ourselves working in the studio more often than not. It also means that Lachie's Grandma gets to come visit + play/babysit! ... And who am I kidding - we still take some breaks to play as a family. #adventureswithmighty 2mon

chrisbodnarphoto When I typically shoot @joyoushealth , the images are usually so full of colour and fun! That being said, I thought this one happened to look perfect in black and white! (// Shot in @torisbakeshop // @hasselblad_official 500CM // @kodakcb #portra400 // @cariboulab ) 2mon

chrisbodnarphoto This past weekend we finally had family photos taken by the absolutely wonderful/talented/sweet @elizabethkaye ! Us photographer folk tend to be pretty guilty of neglecting our own family when it comes to being photographer together, and @tara_mcmullen + I both know + understand on a very personal level how important + fleeting these moments can be! Going through the teasers Beth provided makes our hearts swell so so so much! We can't wait to make a zillion prints ... And - come on - just look at that kid! 2mon
