It’s not too often that I have the opportunity to photograph a 5 month old. I usually see the brand new babies at the newborn session and again in 6 months. Then there’s the ever so important 1 year photos. On occasion, I’ll photograph a baby every 3 months. Capturing all those little changes throughout the months.
I visited this adorable 5 month old at his house. We first got a few shots in mom and dad’s room. Where there was great light pouring in through the sliding glass doors.
We then checked out the baby’s room. I wasn’t sure how he would like being in his crib when it wasn’t nap time. He really didn’t mind and we even got a game of peek-a-boo in, while finishing our session together.

Having a February birthday has always been a bit of a drag. As a kid, it would have been nice to celebrate a birthday in the great outdoors. Something about party games and cake cutting in freezing temperatures just never seemed very appealing.
So, it was nice to celebrate this little guys first birthday, with a cake smash session in his very own backyard. It was a beautiful, warm, May day.
We first grabbed a few shots inside before the cake began to fly outside. No one makes a bow tie look better then this cutie.

This little one was quite cooperative. He was nice and sleepy at the beginning of the session. He then woke up for a few shots at the end. Giving his mom and dad many images to choose from.
