It has been a fun few weeks of first birthday shoots at the studio! I jumped at the chance to photograph this gorgeous boy and his curls when his mom called me about a Star Wars themed first birthday shoot.
He was such a sweet little baby who was scooching himself around the floor throughout the whole session. As soon as we set up some of the props he'd knock them down and have us laughing. These one year old's always keep me on my toes!
I love how creative his parents are - they blog over at 2NerdsAndABaby where they provide tips and stories for first time parents. They brought so many props with them - everything from superheroes to a cardboard cut out of Yoda that they keep proudly displayed in their home. We spent an hour chasing after little Oscar and had so much fun.
Soon after his session he had his first hair cut and it's amazing what a difference it makes! He went from being a curly haired baby to a little boy overnight. I'm so glad they asked me to capture portraits for his first birthday.
