First birthday sessions are always so much fun and full of laughs. This bright-eyed sweetheart gave lots of hugs and high fives. He especially loved when Mama joined him to be in the photos. 

I know you probably hear it a lot lately.. I'm talking to you Moms. Don't forget or shy away from getting IN the photos with your kid(s), and even so, have individual photos taken of yourself. One day, (as much as I hate to think about it...) that's all your children and grandchildren will have. I think because we're in such an iPhone (camera ready) world, we forget to actually have real portraits taken of us. I know I am just as guilty. I'm the one behind the camera, not in front of it. Remember to make it happen, Mamas. Your children will treasure it forever.
