I absolutely love coming to Glen Falls in Amherst, NY. From the sounds of the waterfall to the quacking of the ducks, it’s always a beautiful place to visit and even better when I get to photograph such an awesome family!
On the day of this session, it started out kind of a tad cooler than what I normally would have expected. I definitely needed a light sweater and always keep an extra one in my camera bag. I always highly encourage my clients to bring along several outfit changes for their family sessions with me. Mama Lex never fails to put together the most adorable outfits for her entire family. During our nearly year long adventure together, Mama Lex always has her family in the most stylish outfits for every session, which I absolutely LOVE! I always have such a hard time putting together outfit choices for my family. It doesn’t help matters when my boys (husband included) thinks anything that isn’t basketball shorts with sneakers is considered “fancy”. Can you see my struggle here? Do you share the same issues with your family?
Any who, I was so excited to see Evander again! I wanted to know if he started walking yet or standing up unassisted. On our shoot he had no problem pulling himself up onto my crate and standing. It was so awesome to see how much he has truly grown since I photographed him as a teeny, tiny, quiet newborn! Evander has become this awesome little man! He loves to laugh, smile and was extra curious/ confused when the ducks came around to play during our session. He makes the most hysterical faces and they usually come when his parents are sharing a sweet kiss with one another. I seriously have to make a meme, maybe I will post to my Instagram. And if don’t already follow me…well why not?! I LOVE posting behind the scenes shots and I kind of starting to get into the stories that Instagram has launched. So follow the fun by clicking >>>here
I sincerely enjoy the time that we get to spend together and I always leave our session with an even bigger smile on my face. Evander always makes me laugh and Mama Lex always has some story about Evander that makes me wish my kids were still little. I’m sure when you see those two little bottom teeth poking out with a huge gummy smile, your heart will just melt. I can’t decide whether toothless gummy smiles or the bottom chiclets are my favorite types of smiles in babies. If I had to pick though, I would say toothless gummy smiles are my favorite. What is your favorite type of smile for your kids? Comment below!
You know what’s after this session?….
That’s right! Evander’s first birthday! I cannot believe this little guy has already been with me for a year! I might just shed some silent happy tears into my camera. Knowing that his Grow With Me Plan is slowly coming to an end makes me want to weepy into a bowl of ice cream (rocky road only please). But then again it makes me so incredibly happy and proud that his family has chosen me to photograph his entire first year.
