Oh my goodness…I just had the honor of taking little Jack’s 12 month pictures! It was so neat to see how big he is now and how much more personality he has compared to when his parents first asked me to take his pictures back in March. This is how I remember Jack from back then:
It is so sweet to see how much this little one has grown. Jack’s parents were some of my first clients and every session with them is just wonderful. We always get some great shots of little Jack and from time to time we sneak in some family shots. Well, to my surprise we got a Christmas card from Jack’s family last week and on the card was the family picture I had taken for them back in September! It is so neat to see how the pictures are being used as you never know what customers are doing with them after I drop off the CD. As luck would have it, we had Jack’s 12 month session back at his house again and as I walked around his house for inspiration, I got to see exactly how his parents put their CD to use! I saw pictures of Jack from 3 months of age on up around the house, a picture I had taken of his sister, and a huge family portrait above the fireplace. This was by far the most breathtaking of all the pictures around Jack’s home because Jack’s mommy found the most beautiful frame to put around their family picture.
I am just so moved that his parents have trusted me to be there for his milestones and to capture those moments they would have for a lifetime. I think I have now rambled on enough about my sentiments with this family so on to the good stuff that you all are waiting for. Here are some of the great pictures we got of Jack this past weekend! My how he has grown just from March!
Alie, my wife, thinks I am crazy but I love this last picture. It reminds me of our daughter and how she would look up at us like this. There is just something precious about moments like this one! Although we as parents look forward to our children learning how to feed themselves and to become more independent so our lives are easier, we will always remember moments like this. Being able to look them right in the eyes and to see nothing but innocence and purity…it connects you at a level only a loving parent would know.
