Every year since Calvin was born I have photographed him for a portrait session around his birthday. This year marks 7 years! I highly recommend doing a yearly portrait session for each child as they grow up so quickly. School photos won’t capture them the same way a portrait session will. A yearly family session or sibling session is a great option too but a one-on-one portrait session really gets the most photos and unique moments. It is a fun experience too!
This year we went to the Burchfield Nature & Art Center. I love this location! So many fun spots to shoot. Funny enough we used the wall of the restroom building to have a neutral backdrop for up close portraits. And I don’t normally like shooting in the gazebo, gazebo photos sound like a good idea but it’s often a problematic place to photograph, but I love how sitting in the middle of the patterned floorboards turned out!
