Today was a pretty special day for me, and KKP. I got to photograph this sweet boy on his first birthday. His parents were my very first maternity shoot, and I have had the pleasure of photographing their sweet boy all throughout his first year. We met at the very same spot where we shot their maternity pictures, and no we’ve come full circle. One of mom’s favorite newborn shots was this apple shot. I almost did’t include it in the original gallery as it was far from perfect technically or with posing – but that smile made it a keeper. Jackson was also one of my first newborns so I still had some learning to do. I wanted to recreate this shot for mom today since I know it holds a special place in her heart. We weren’t quite sure if “J” would be up for being stuck in a basket now that he’s off and running, but we were lucky enough to grab a quick shot and a smile before he jumped up and wanted out. Unfortunately I forgot my bag of apples at home, but once again his adorable smile makes up for it not being a perfect shot.
Happy Birthday Jackson! I’ve loved watching you grow over the past year. Thank you mom and dad, I can truly say I’m honored to have gotten to know you and to have captured your beautiful family for 5 sessions now. I’m thrilled to have you as clients, and as friends. Enjoy your sneak peek =)
