On Sunday, while most moms were probably taking a break from work, I got to truly celebrate the gift of motherhood (in addition to snuggling my own little one, of course) by shooting this little guy's 1-year pictures! He did superb for his shoot, serving up smiles and sweetness that would melt any mother's heart. He is such an easy-going and enjoyable little boy, and I was so overjoyed to capture this special day for him. While it didn't rain (luckily!), I was a bit disappointed at just how overcast the sky was that day. But that's just part of the outdoor photography struggle - gotta work with what nature gives you! And she doesn't always cooperate. However, by happy accident! We stumbled upon a sundial! And while posing him next to the "1," noticed that May (aka, his birth month), lined up PERFECTLY on the ground with the shot! How cool was that? I love exciting moments like these. Hopefully you find him as precious as I do!
And a bonus picture - my favorite - AKA: "How You Know A Shoot is OVER!"
