Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest little boy for his 1st Birhday. Is there anything more special than the 1st? I wanted the session to be fun and light hearted. I didn't want to stuff him into the studio on such a beautiful day. So I walked down the road and asked the neighbors if I could set up in their large field across the street, as the sun light is better than my yard.
With my girls in tow we set out to load up the car and make magic. We packed us some PB & J's, laid out a blanket, had a picnic & got to work. I wanted to colors to be fun & playful so after hanging a white muslin backdrop I laid an old handmade patchwork quilt on the ground, hung a beautiful fabric pennant banner made by my friend Heather at Red-Eyed Studio www.Facebook.com/RedEyedStudio, added some balloons & Violia!
I also set up a fall scene with hay bales & pumpkins, however he was not liking that near as much as the old red ryder trike we had waiting for him. He was all smiles and giggles and when we got to the Cake Smash I was expecting him to dive right in, however we had a little gentleman on our hands & he did not want to get dirty, till he tasted the icing...
I'm sharing a few images here and please stop by the website and leave a comment or two.
