I met Mr. J’s momma when we were kids and we had quite a few adventures together. I remember once upon a time staying the night at her house and walking what felt like miles upon miles through her neighborhood until we saw the interstate. (I hope she remembers that or right now she may think I am insane.) When Mr. J won our 2015 Free Photo Shoot Contest I was thrilled. I have been wanting to photograph this adorable little man since the day he was born! Plus I knew his momma was one of the most creative people I have ever met. She did not disappoint!
Much like many one year olds Mr. J was a bit overwhelmed with his session. We managed to walk away with stunning images. And he LOVED having cake for the first time EVER!
A very special thank you to Petra at Cakes by Appointment for providing her amazing location for us to shoot!
