The Morton's are very close friends of mine. I have been shooting them since they were a family with only fur babies. Having done maternity, Harley's newborn, and a session with just Daddy this year I was thrilled to be able to capture a family session for Harley's first birthday. We wanted to get a traditional family session with some special ones for his birthday as well. I grabbed some balloons on my way and met them in NW Portland on a very warm Sunday morning.
Harley is a SUPER happy kiddo who just learned to walk the week of out shoot. Let me tell you about kids that are fresh to walking. IT'S ALL THEY WANT TO DO. This certainly created some challenges for the shoot where ideally he would be sitting still a LOT more than he did! We all worked together though and ended up with some great shots.
This is my absolute favorite outtake I have every taken. It sums up how he was feeling about being held still and being asked to cooperate. I laugh every time I see it!
I know right??? Luckily with a couple head swaps and a lot of coercion we did get a nice gallery of family shots too.
