When S contacted me for portraits last month, I had no idea how lucky I would be to photograph her Halloween Baby’s First Birthday in Seattle. What makes this session extra special is that Dad is overseas with the military and this will be his first glimpse of his little guy in over a month. I am so excited to show these to both of them.
Mr A was quite a mover and shaker, ready to go onto the next thing every 5 minutes, literally. Although capturing images between the ages of 1-2.5 is perhaps the most challenging part of my work, it can also be the most rewarding as the images created are inspired by the wee ones. It’s baby sports photography at its finest right here and A didn’t let me down. We kept pulling new things to interest him: bubbles, toys, noisemakers, lots of wacky noises….. Mom planned well knowing his motivations, even suggesting his toilet paper trick.( Apparently he just loves to rip up toilet paper so we handed him a bunch and let him go to town.) We shot some in studio and then down to the lovely Pioneer Square, loving the cobblestone/brick and contrasty light. Happy Birthday A. and congrats Mom and Dad. What a great day !!
