I met little EJ before he was even earthside.
I met his parents the afternoon I photographed his mommy’s baby bump. They were so eager to meet their little one and I remember coming home still feeling that excitement and love. A few weeks later, I met EJ at his home, 7 days new then. He was so sweet and so handsome.
Now, he’s 2 years old and I’m so lucky to have been able to document another milestone. His family moved away and while in town for his birthday celebration, we were able to meet for some photo and park fun.
It took a little bit for him to warm up to me, but soon enough he was laughing and playing in the playground. He was overlooking and on-watch at the BIG slide but wouldn’t dare slide down. “No”, he’d say. Straight and to the point when we’d ask him to slide down. He’d say no and then laugh. He cheered the other children sliding down, but wouldn’t budge! Even Mickey Mouse went down, but he’d just watching from the top.
We had some tears in between, but ended with a happy face and laughs – which in my book is a great end!
Here are some highlights from our afternoon together. And one from 2 years ago.
