I've known Luke's mommy for over 4 years. Luke's big brother Adrian was one of my very first newborns, and it has been such a joy watching these boys grow over the months and years.
It seems like yesterday that mom and I were planning Luke's newborn session, yet here we are, doing birthday photos! Luke is one of the cutest, sweetest little boys I know, and though he made me work for those smiles, man did he pour it on when I got them!
For his 1 year session, mom picked an old favorite backdrop (bricks), which we've done throughout both Adrian and Luke's sessions. It's so cool to compare the boys at the same age on the same set, and to see how much Luke has changed over time. I started doing this with my own girls once I had a 2nd, and it's probably my favorite thing to do now. Look at both boys at 6m - crazy how alike (and yet how different) they look! <3
We also tried out my 2 new wood sets (they're wider than my other sets by 2 feet, which is AMAZING for moving babies!), and got some of my favorite images to date. Seriously, this kid is model material!
There's nothing better than having my first clients come back again and again, and documenting all of these amazing milestones for their growing families. I look forward to capturing more memories of sweet little Luke as he grows. Happy birthday little man <3
