Hello everyone! I hope all is well! This week I am going to share some photos that I took of a milestone my little brother reached at the end of June.
At the end of June, my little brother turned one! I honestly can’t believe that it’s already been over a whole year since he was born. And boy what a year it has been! When he was born I posted a picture of him with a caption, “Welcome to this crazy world little one” little did I know a year later we would be going through one of the craziest times of our lives.
Even with everything going on in the world I wanted to share some light with our friends and family by capturing the happiness a one year old has through a first birthday photo session.
My mom and I tossed ideas back and forth on what we wanted to do as a theme, outfits he would wear, props, and the location of the photo session. I was very lucky because my mom told me that she wasn’t that creative to help decide the props or locations, she just wanted it up on the farm so I had free-reign of what I could capture on the day of the shoot.
When the day came we had to take the photographs in between rain drops for a little while, but I didn’t mind because my little brother gets side tracked real easily so it helped me maintain his attention while taking the photographs.
For his photo session we went with the them of rustic and farm. I used burlap and old metal wagons and tubs, a farm birthday banner, a white picket fence, a rocker and most importantly a hay field where the hay hasn’t been mowed yet. I didn’t go far into the hay field because I didn’t want to ruin it, I just wanted the tall hay around him.
I took these photographs a few days before his first birthday so my mom would have photos to share with our friends and family on the day of his birthday as well as printing them out for our house.
Here are a few of the photographs that I captured that day.
One of my favorite parts about editing this photo session was seeing all of my little brother’s different faces that he was making through out the shoot. You can see some different faces in the photographs above.
That’s all for this week! Stay safe! Stay Healthy! I’ll talk to you all next week!
