When Liz emailed me a few months ago asking if I could document her family when Luke turned one, I couldn’t say no. We agreed that a casual lifestyle session at their beautiful home would be the perfect way to document Luke.
When I arrived, Luke was still sleeping from his afternoon nap. We let him wake up slowly and rather than calling his name non-stop and getting him to smile, we let him be. My camera was in hand, but we let the moments of the session unfold how Luke wanted to. We played with his barn, his trucks, bubbles, and his puppy. We read books. We played outside. We surprised him with balloons.
And throughout it all, beautiful moments unfolded. Smiles and laughter. Authentic and genuine. Happy birthday, Luke!
