It’s really fun when your friends have babies. You get to play with them and laugh at how they resemble their parents who you know so well. And the best part is the ability to give them back to their parents. I honestly thought Lukas and I might end up sharing a birthday, but on February 17, he came. I loved capturing his newborn photos so I had big dreams for his first birthday!
My biggest frustration as a lifestyle blogger and photograher is when expectation is not reality and I always blame myself. When working with babies, something is always going to go wrong, but I roll with it and embrace the imperfections. I love shooting but the editing process is the worst for me. I nit-pick everything: How could I overlook that thing in the corner, how did that get in the shot, why did I cut off their heads? I know, I know, I overthink things, but that’s because I’m always trying to get better.
This shoot wasn’t about me so I’m done with my little confession. It was about capturing Lukas as he is, precious moments with his mom and a few candids at the party. Lukas partied until the last person went home! He’s growing so fast. Mommy and daddy better cherish these moments, because he is truly on the move!
