As a result of our Winter photos of beautiful Harlow and handsome Luke, we got referrals from each of these lovely shoots. They were both booked in January back-to-back weekends and were to set to take place in April back-to-back weekends! Just a little coincidence I thought was interesting. Both birthday shoots for adorable little boys.
Madison & Kyler
First was Kyler! This mommy and me shoot was done at Trinity Park in Fort Worth. A quiet area under the train tracks was perfect for this baseball themed session.
We started of course with introductions, then getting him used to the camera..
After the “who are you and why are you doing this?” wore off, we got to the fun stuff. Hitting some balls!
Kyler was turning two and obviously loves the Texas Rangers. His awesome mom, Madison, matched him so great and brought some fantastic props. We wanted to show them off, so some master distraction away from the batting around was needed… and what’s a birthday without some balloons?
And of course the cutest little red wagon we’ve ever seen!
After some wagon action, it was time for some more mommy and me. Running, wrestling, hide-and-seek, and of course more baseball.
After some serious chasing and sweating, it was time to start wrapping up and winding down. Some more wagon pics and Kyler working the camera.
A little inside scoop.. So Kyler was having so much fun that he really didn’t want to leave. The below bonus photo is actually him looking at his mom at the car getting ready to go. See that baseball in his hand? Well we actually brought that as a prop, and it was all fun and games until he threw it against our car door. Now I hope this isn’t embarrassing, because we thought it was hilarious! Madison proceeded to say, “Yeah.. that’s why we use that other ball.” (seen above) Priceless. Hey, we learned our lesson. Just pick up the props before you head to the car..
Debra & Jaxson
This next adorable little man is Jaxson. For his first birthday, his beautiful mother Debra, wanted to do a three outfit shoot ending with a cake smash at Eureka Park in Denton, TX. How cute is he?!
Cowboy up. This beautiful saddle was actually passed down from Debra, as it was hers from when she was a little girl. So sweet. Of course we had to get some with Mom, too.
Next we went for a little stroll and managed to even get a nice shot with Dad.
Outfit change! Tropical theme was next. He was of course diggin the beach ball and looking so cute with his little Jax pale.
Lastly, the cake smash. Another wardrobe change into some Wrangler gear! This is always the fun part.. at least for the adults.
So Jaxson wasn’t really smashing the cake as much as he was taste testing it. After the first taste of icing was really strong, he was done. So Mom and Dad helped out.. a little too much. Being covered in icing was not his favorite thing, so Mom and Dad to the rescue again!
More inside scoop. So Jaxson was really over the cake, but we only got crying pictures up to that point. I had the idea to put a piece of candy on his side of the cake and let him eat that off. So with permission, we put a Smartie right on top and waited. It totally worked. Can you see it on the pic below? It’s pink. Major win!
I will leave you with my favorite pics from both sessions. As always, we are blessed and we love our clients 🙂
Til next time,
