Peyton :: 6 Months

Peyton is back! For those of you who haven’t met Peyton, this little man is my cousin Jenni’s first baby who I fell completely in love with when I first met him. It has been so much fun watching him grow over the last few months, and I love being able to photograph him at each of his milestones.

So when it came for his 6-month photos, we decided to head to a park in downtown Naperville to bare a warm August morning. This was a big day for Peyton, you see. It was his first time in grass (which was a complete distraction) and his first time on a swing (where he laughed and smiled the whole time). He was a little bundle of happiness for the whole session. Take a peak at some of my favorites of him with the most amazing parents I know. :)

Baby Peyton :: 3 months

When I learned that baby Peyton was on the way, I knew he was going to be my perfect baby model. Peyton is my cousin Jenni’s first son, so I am beyond excited to have this little guy in my life and even more excited to document him growing along the way for two amazing parents.

At his first big photo shoot at 3 months, he was exactly what I expected. Perfect!

During the 3 hours of shooting, he was completely fascinated with the camera, almost always looking straight into it. And the camera loves his huge blue eyes. Peyton is starting to smile more and more, so we had fun catching him giving little smirks at mom and dad.

This little nugget wants to be a part of the action at all time. He refused to fall asleep for his nap because he didn’t want to miss out on what was going on. But eventually he gave in and let me sneak some photos of him while he slept.

It was hard to pick my favorites from this session (because he is so adorable!), but here they are.
