I’ve been photographing this little guy since his newborn session, and I’m so glad that I can still capture these milestones even though we are in different cities. I had so much fun with his Dr. Seuss theme last year, and this year it was Elmo just like my little guy’s 2nd birthday. It’s a theme near and dear to my heart 🙂 Can you tell that he’s excited to be turning 2???
We were so busy having fun at the beach that the only time I used my camera for my own family was for our beach pictures our last night there. Last year, I wanted to just catch my boys playing on the beach. There was absolutely no pressure, and it went fabulously. This time? Not so much. It was completely my fault though. All I wanted was a good smiling picture of the boys. I bribed them with a toy, but our little one had just woken up from a looooong nap, and he just wasn’t having it. Our oldest was fully committed to earning a toy and was as cooperative as could be. Luckily, we did end up with a good smiling shot, an even better daddy/son shot, and some fun couple shots taken by our very own 5 year old!
l.o.v.e. and so very us
One of my all time favorites. We are so lucky to have such an amazing daddy. I adore him and so do they.
So cooperative, but such a “cheese” smile. Ya’ll know I try to avoid those by all means possible.
Little bit on the other hand did not get an individual shot. All of his looked like this:
Pathetic, I tell you. Life is so hard when you are 3. Oh here’s a real life one. If you’ve seen my boys, this is what they normally look like 🙂
And a HUGE thank you to the sweet random lady on the beach who offered to take our picture. If only she knew how special pics of all 4 of us are to me. I LOVE these boys!
I can’t believe my first year with this little guy is over. I’ve been photographing him since he was a few days old, and he has been an absolute joy. When his mommy and daddy arrived for our session, they said that he was feeling under the weather. I sure wish my boys acted like him when they were feeling sick, because he did not stop smiling for our entire session. It was a perfect session to complete his first year. Happy Birthday Rowan!
Oh my goodness! When you hear the phrase all boy, Jude is the perfect example. I don’t think there was a moment during our session where he wasn’t holding or searching for a leaf, stick, or rock. This momma of 2 boys can definitely relate to that! Like many mommies, his mommy is always the one behind the camera. She wanted to be in front of it with her little guy for once, and we made sure to do just that. Well, when we could wrangle him long enough, this guy was all over the place!
I met Miss L, her mommy, and her grandma on a warm, muggy morning in Hendersonville. It has been so hot, as in above 100 degrees hot, that all of my sessions have either been rescheduled or scheduled for early morning. This morning was cloudy, and we even saw a few rare raindrops. Miss L lives overseas, and her mommy found me through one of my favorite gadgets, Google. I’m so glad she did! They were in town visiting family, and it was wonderful meeting them.
