I LOVE birthdays. They are sweet and fabulous. There is always something delicious to eat and I NEVER turn down cake. 🙂
I also love being a part of that milestone first birthday photo shoot. The props for this session were a no-brainer since I photographed this sweet baby boy as a newborn on this very same firetruck. Cars and trucks and all things that go are a regular part of this family’s adventures since they love to frequent The Henry Ford and their oldest son has literally shown me every single car he owns! 🙂 To know them is to know that vehicles are prominent in their life.
I love the curiousity of one-year-olds. They are engaged and interested in the world around them. They want to eat everything. But they cannot yet communicate very well. I spend a lot of time wondering what they are thinking, especially about their portrait session. Is it silly? Is it crazy? It must be fun or we wouldn’t get all those sweet smiles!
I know I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but this is a really fun family. They are easy to be with, comfortable with each other, and just all-around silly and fabulous! I hope that I keep attracting clients like this. It is so easy to get great smiles and fun memories!
I took a few of big brother because this is a milestone for him too, the anniversary of the day his life changed forever. He now has a permanent friend, someone to count on, rely on, to fight with, to scheme with, and to play with.
So, as much as a birthday is a celebration of the person themselves and the parents who birthed them, it should also be a celebration of the person they can count on every day, in this case, their brother.
CHEERS to brothers everywhere! And, THANKS FOR LOOKING!!
