Edlefsen Family | Katy Houston, TX Family Photographer

Oh my goodness you guys, this session and the next one I'm about to blog both have such a special place in my heart!!! You see, I did little Fletcher's newborn photos about a year prior! And I LOVE getting to watch my tiny little clients grow up. I actually drove out to Pearland for this session, because between our newborn session and now, they moved across town! But when she asked me to do their family photos this year/Fletcher's one year photos, there was no way I was going to say no, especially since I had procured the perfect little prop for him.

If you've ever been in my house, then you know pretty much every piece in it has a special meaning behind it or sentimental value in some way. I am the queen of nostalgia and over the years I have carefully curated a museum of beautiful items from different stages of my life, or my parents/grandparents lives, and so I get weak in the heart when parents want to include special items in their sessions, especially if it's a family heirloom. Little Fletcher actually hails from a line of farmers, and just a couple of weeks prior to his session, I had come upon the P E R F E C T little tractor tricycle with wheelbarrow attachment that I knew would make for some stunning little one year photos. I mean, this thing is the real deal - it is metal, and super heavy duty. When Megan saw it, she agreed it was perfect. And then she also pulled out her own box that belonged to her own grandfather from his farming days, with his name still etched on the side, that she wanted to use as well. I hope you enjoy seeing our heartwarming tribute to his heritage below. Happy one year, Fletcher!
