There is absolutely nothing like that first session of the Spring. Leading up to it, the excitement of getting back outside sets in, but you never know if the weather is going to hold up and usually you have to reschedule at least once. Thankfully once was all it took with Hope & Kyle’s engagement session. It was snowing and windy the day we had originally scheduled, but we gave it just a couple of days and we had warmer temps, less wind and beautiful daffodils in bloom! Welcome Spring!
Welcome to my next edition of Clicking Through the Lives of Others! This post is a little different than what I usually do and as I was prepping it I fell in love with this idea even more and think I’ll be doing more of this in future. I think that it truly defines where my photography vision first started and with this post I feel like it has come full circle. 🙂
Next came a cute pair of miniature converse and a baby on the way…
Then a magical little leprechaun joined them just in time for St. Patrick’s day!
This perfect baby boy entered the world and they became a family…
At three months he’s so happy, already taken on traits from his parents, and those eyes…
At 6 months, Bobby’s personality really started shining through. Think he takes after his dad much? lol
This is one of my favorite images ever, I mean come on, the shirt, the bike… It all fits together so perfect!
Last month they were back in the studio for little Bobby’s 1 year session and as I was getting the studio ready I was almost in tears as I thought about the time I’ve spent with them and what it means to me. I was there when Amy & Bobby were married, captured their love with camera and have watched little Bobby grow through my lens. I have documented so many special moments and the thought of these people letting me into their lives like this moved me. This my friends, is Clicking Through Life.
At a year old he’s grown so much! Bobby’s on the move, he’s fast and quick full of joy and wonder. He already has a big personality and shares their taste and love for music…
We wrapped up Bobby’s year with me with a cake smash! It was so fun watching him dive in and you can tell he was enjoying every second of it! Awesome cake made by Shannon at Living, Breathing, Baking.
I’ve known Roberta for quite a while and as Scott’s Aunt’s best friend for 60 years, I’ve always thought she was a very special lady. But I never really knew how special until I photographed her 75th birthday party. I learned so much more about her, but it also confirmed what I always knew. She’s one of the most patient, kind and giving people and she has some spunk! Her cousin Mary organized such a beautiful and personal party, complete with a program, story sharing, decades of pictures, and a beautiful duet with her cousin Harold to which Roberta signed along, it was a true celebration of Roberta!
As I was prepping this blog post of Charlie’s 3 month session, I realized that I never shared his newborn session. And I loved his session. Like really loved. Steve & Katie are really good friends of ours, and little Charlie is such a blessing for Steve & Katie. He was so perfect and squishy and both Scott and I loved him the instant we met him. We got to see him again for his 3 month session was just a few weeks ago and I can’t believe how much he’s grown. He’s even more squishy and more perfect and those eyes….
There are so many reasons I’m excited to introduce this newest adorable addition to our CTL family and our own family. I’ve known Angela for nearly half her life now. She’s the youngest of Scott’s cousins and I’ve watched her graduate high school, college, fall in love, get married and start a family and now seeing their love and family grow truly melts my heart. And I know that baby Ryder will melt yours too.
