When I got an email from [Big] John’s wife for their son’s first birthday portraits, I smiled so big and thanked the heavens for those that come back to me for portraits. It had been 3 years since I first met John and worked with him for business head shots. Armando, my husband – partner – backup photographer, recorded some videos for John’s website, as well! I was so excited to meet John’s wife and little man.
We combined his birthday portraits with a family session and it was just perfect. Cynthia had everyone coordinating so nicely and Grant brought his handsome smile! Sometimes it takes a bit for the kiddos to warm up to me, because I do not go in too aggressive trying to get them to smile and cooperate. I let them take a bit of time to get to know me, and see I’m not “so bad”. 😛 and with some help from Momma, Grant was giggling and play it up to the camera!
I don’t think I was able to thank the Little Family enough for trusting me to document their son’s 1st birthday after a few years of not being in constant contact. I really loved seeing this family and working with them. It really is so beautiful to see a family’s growth!
Here are some highlights from our afternoon together.
