Braydon Turns One!

OH MY GOODNESS Y'ALL!!!!  I cannot tell you how incredibly fun this session was.  This little man had me in awe.  I photographed Braydon when he was just a brand new little guy during a family fall mini session last year.  He was a sweet baby but nothing like the little man I met at Hunt Club Farms this past weekend.  Let me just tell you how amazing he is.  This sweet boy is full of smiles, curiosity and pretty much everything that involves dirt and rocks.  He is all boy and in his daddy's heart he is all country boy.  

We walked around the Hunt Club Farm and I let him dictate his session.  I find when you are working with little guys that's the best way.  They will find their happiness and give you all those million dollar smiles when you are patient and give them the space they need.  Yes we had some posed shots to take but quite honestly we put him in the situation and let him determine how it was going to go.  Every photo you see is just Braydon being his true, beaming, sunshiny self.  We even were blessed with a small rafter of turkeys cut through one of our shots and we just went with it.  

I think my favorite part of this session was as we were waiting for the sun to set just a little further down in the sky.  We had set Braydon on the ground to sort of play and be himself while his parents and I chit chatted about life.  All the while I laid on the ground with my camera up close to my face and pointed towards Braydon.  I didn't want to miss a moment and I am so glad I didn't.  This baby loved dirt so much that he began eating it...which we pretty much anticipated.  However, I thought he would take one taste and spit it out and be done.  Nope!  That baby loved his dirt and ate bite after bite.  Krista (mama) encouraged me to keep snapping away because that's who Braydon is and capturing who he is was the point of celebrating his first year.

As we ended our session, Krista and Jared let me know they are being transferred out of the area.  This is the hardest part of loving to photograph our military families.  Seeing my favorite families move away.  I hope our paths cross again someday Willer Family!  It has been an absolute joy capturing some of your moments in the last year.  XOXO


This is a photo from that session almost one year ago.

and sometimes digging in the dirt is more fun than watching your daddy jump around like a monkey KMP_6728KMP_6728
