baby blue eyes | Richmond Baby Photographer

I have been drowning in work for the past few weeks, editing, designing and processing client orders. Something had to give - and of course this time it was the blog. But I am finally catching up and I have a whole slew of sessions to start posting here. So look forward to some new eye candy coming your way! We'll start with this absolutely precious baby boy. His momma and I were co-workers a few years back at Liberty University and since I left my job there I had only seen her a handful of times. Sadly, this was the first time I met her baby boy, but I absolutely enjoyed the time we did spend together! His face lit up as soon as he saw me and I credit that 100% to the grace of God. Let me explain! I was a little bit nervous driving to this session as he is the oldest "baby" I have ever photographed. My plan was to approach his mom and catch up with her for a bit before even pulling out my camera. But, I didn't even make it to her before he was running straight to greet me. Perfect! I just let him do his thing - and I hung out and captured his activity as it unfolded. Exploring, discovering, and even a little bit of flirting. He was so easy to photograph and I am so grateful!

Here are a few of my favorite images from his session:
