… we swooned.
There was no way around it. This handsome little man was the quintessential “sitter”: happy, smiling, clapping, enamored with his toes. It’s really amazing to think of the growth of a child during that first year and how quickly the milestones pass from curly, sleepy newborn to happy, smiling and sitting up to cruising/walking/running at the one-year session. And I can’t think of one time when the 6-8 month session wasn’t my favorite session of a baby’s first year. This was certainly no exception.
We began with a city feel incorporating the blues of concrete and surrounding building color, then moved out a bit to a beautiful little patch of nature for a country feel.That’s perhaps one of my favorite things about being on the Pearland side of SE Houston – that I’m able to incorporate a little of both (city/country) in a single session when the mood calls for it. And there is a ton of variety throughout this side of the Greater Houston metro. Moreover, within 40 minutes and we can be at the Gulf of Mexico on the beach or the boardwalk. I often tell my clients to “trust the process” given that a shot that appears to be in a vast expanse of wildflowers may, in reality, have been shot in a tiny patch behind a grocery store or around the corner from a busy neighborhood. I call these my “little pockets of wonderful.” And my iPhone is full of notes to remind me of the addresses of these spots as I go about my normal daily travels.
With those beautiful yellow buds in the background, I knew his blue suspenders, newsboy hat and little bow tie were ideal for my vintage blue baby bed and shabby blue chair.
But nothing shone more than those baby blue eyes and the people who love him most looking back at him.
