This little guy just finished his Baby’s First Year program with me, where we do newborn, six month, and one year session and then create an heirloom album with all the sessions, creating a perfect memory of the first year. I also had the pleasure of doing their maternity session and even their dog’s mini session this winter. What’s my point? I’m going to miss seeing them so often! Being a Naperville Baby Photographer doesn’t mean that I’m not simply a photographer for all occasions. 🙂
While we were focusing on the birthday boy, we always do a few family pictures, too. I love the colors they chose. I also love this neutral brick. He looks like quite the little man here.
So we got him dressed in his overalls (I love one year old boys shirtless in overalls). And he kept going behind my door props and playing behind them. Instead of fighting it, I rolled my light over and got some great ones of him playing peek-a-boo with me.
Then it was back to the classic set we had ready for him. Having his favorite airplane and his mommy’s teddy bear on hand helped him stay put. As you can see, he had a blast.
And then some quiet time with teddy, who as you can see is very well loved. I love creating quiet moments like these.
And then an outfit and background change and a happy little baby.
Then at the very end, it was time to party! Yes, mom brought a smash cake to celebrate his first birthday! While he didn’t go nuts with it, he still really enjoyed digging in. And it was yummy cake. Yes, I got to grab a dab during clean up. LOL
Happy birthday, little man! You have grown and changed so much this past year, and I am honored that I got to bear witness to it and photograph you in all your stages.
