Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’ve slowly been getting myself back into the swing of school things, so my days have been a whirlwind. It feels like it should already be Friday, and it’s only the second day of the week! I hope everyone is having a smooth transition back to the reality of the school year.
Today’s blog post is all about an adorable little boy named Octavius! He’s the son of someone I just had the pleasure of meeting, and is so insanely cute. When I saw the theme of this party, I knew it was going to be a lot of fun. Then, when the birthday boy arrived in his little sailor suit, I was sure these pictures were going to be some of the best I’ve taken. He rocked the hell out of that little shirt and hat, and I’m so glad to have caught it.
I never really understood parties for babies until I started to do photography. Especially one year olds. They are barely able to recognize the people around them, let alone take place in the activities. As I started to shoot occasions like this, it all started to make sense. These types of things are just as much for the family of their little one as it is for the baby. People are watching what was such a little thing at one time grow up – and as an adult, it’s so much easier to see how that can seem like it’s moving way too fast.
Getting to capture big milestones like this always reminds me that if I’m a parent, I’m going to want to keep every second of my child’s life – especially huge moments like this. Photography gives me lots of things, the most exciting being a new perspective on all the things around me.
As you go through these, I hope you appreciate his adorable little outfit and the obvious fun Octavius is having. His family and friends gave him the richest attention throughout the process, so keep an eye out for photo representation of that, too.
There you have it! Ocatvius, I hope you get to look back on these and remember the time fondly. Or at least see how fond the time was for everyone around you! If you’re having a party and want someone to capture it – I’d love to share that special time with you and your family! These were an absolute blast & I can’t wait to do more.
We’re currently still offering $50 off all of our sessions until the end of August. I want to cling to the summer as long as I can, so if you book a sunset session, we’ll give an extra $10 off! That’s right, ANOTHER $10 off!
We’re also putting together our fall mini sessions, which will take place September 21st and October 12th! Our backdrop is gorgeous and we can’t wait to see who comes out to shoot with us! The current $50 off can be used towards these sessions if you book before the end of August – (which is an amazing deal for these!) so don’t miss out.
As always, thank you for hanging in there with us. We couldn’t do this without all the people who book with us & look at our stuff throughout the year! Y’all are the greatest and we can’t wait to see what else comes our way!
Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…
