I love it when friends trust me to capture their children’s portraits. This mama and I were pregnant at the same time, and our boys were born only a few weeks apart, so I was honored when she asked me to do his one-year portraits.
He was very serious that evening, although we managed to pull out some smiles at the end of our session. Like so many little boys, he has a special relationship with his mama. She wasn’t planning on being in the photos, but he had other plans. I love the connection that you can see between these two.
(And this talented mama isn’t just a fellow birth doula, she’s also a talented knitter — she made the jumper he’s wearing in the first image). Looks like I’ve found my source for custom newborn hats!
