This handsome little guy recently turned four! Nathan and his parents invited me to their property to document the milestone and we had a lot of fun getting some great images!
Although I have a studio and property of my own and use it often for sessions, I really do enjoy going to new and different locations! It's especially fun when clients invite me to a unique location that the general public doesn't have access to. In this case, Nathan and his family don't live very far from me and it was well worth the trip to their house!
Nathan has a monkey that is very special to him, it's always wonderful to include those special items in a child's portraits. It captures who they are in that moment and documents the history of what is important to the individual.
I have been taking Nathan's milestone portraits since he was a newborn. He is a very sweet and charming little guy, however, he has always been a bit shy in the studio as he is out of his element. As you can see, he is perfectly comfortable on his family property! This is another very good reason to consider choosing a familiar location, especially if the child is quiet or shy.
You can just feel the love and joy! Look at that smile!
We ended the session with a few photos by the tractor and I can say with certainty that was Nathans favorite part!
