Jack is one! | A Hello, Baby! Story | Dover OH children's photographer

It's hard to believe that it's been a year since I photographed Jack right after he was born! Originally, his mom had scheduled a smash cake session for him, complete with an awesome Star Wars cake from Dreamsville Cakes. At his family birthday party a week before the shoot, they learned that Jack was taking after a number of his six siblings and was allergic to something in the cake. I am just glad that it was discovered before he potentially covered himself in cake!

So, instead, we moved his session to his bedroom. I love his nursery! Really, I love photographing kids in their space-- especially their first space. Nurseries are so fleeting. Before we parents know it, the crib is replaced by a toddler bed, the big rocking chair for mom makes way for a soft place for a little explorer to flip through books and play. The whole vibe of the room changes with each stage of childhood, and I love when I get the chance to save some of that for my clients and friends.

After we played with all Han Solo-- I mean Jack's-- cool toys, we headed out to the yard for some exploring. Jack still hasn't gotten a fondness for grass, but the leaves were pretty awesome. 

Happy belated birthday, little man! I look forward to watching you grow up with your amazing siblings!
