I have been blessed with some amazing clients, and this family is one of them. I've been photographing their family from the very beginning of my business 9 years ago. This particular session was the 4th one for this year as we documented this little guy's first year. He's the happiest baby you've ever seen. For each session we've included the whole family - which is more than fine with me. Families are my passion.
I love that they brought this red rocking chair. It's the same rocking chair his mom had as a child, and now all 3 of her kids have been photographed in it. It's much more meaningful than something I could bring for him to sit in. They also brought his favorite truck. His whole face lit up when he saw it come out of the bag. I know they will always remember him pushing this truck all over their house. Memories are powerful, and hopefully this photography can bring back some of the best ones for them. Happy 1st Birthday big guy! I can't wait to see you next year.
