Birthday Boy {Cincinnati Family Photographer}

This little cutie turned one on the day of our session.  He was such a happy little guy. I had so much fun photographing him and his family.   And of course the most exciting moment of the night was when he took his first step!  We all of course were so excited (as was he). Enjoy your sneak peak.. can’t wait to show you the rest.

Of course we have to start off by showing the first step….

such a cute little smile…

He and his daddy…

and  he and his mom…

Sweet.. {Cincinnati Family Photographer}

I just love this kid.. he was so full of giggles and personality.  As most one year olds, he just loved exploring.  I teach at the same school with his sweet mom and so it was just so much fun to spend the morning with their family.  Thank you!

On the go…

This week I had three little boys.. this cutie was my first.  I just love this age because they are all about discovering the world around them.  This little guy was certainly the happiest when we just let him go.  What a gorgeous morning we had and it was just fabulous meeting him and his family.  I loved all of his fabulous expressions. Enjoy the sneak peak. Can’t wait to show you the rest.

These are my favorite type of families.. the ones that run around with me, play games,  and those that will show me their silly and sweet sides.  Even though it was a 90 degree day and about 100% humidity, we had a blast!!!  Enjoy!

Irene - June 10, 2011 - 10:04 pm

As the maternal grandparents to these beautiful children, we so treasure their individual and unique personalities captured through your perceptive photography. They truly are as sweet, spirited and loving as your photos reflect. We hope this becomes a yearly experience so that we can assemble our personal ” end of the school year ” growth chart, measured as a function of their own private development rather than grades. This is the second year that we have enjoyed the opportunity to admire and cherish your wonderful talent!
