When Kristina messaged me that she would like to book Thorin’s second birthday pictures, I immediately thought holy moly, how has it already been a year since I did his one year photos!
Leading up to Monday, the weather was showing storms and cooler weather. We got super lucky and it cleared up and actually got warmer than expected. At first, Thorin was doing great with looking at me and smiling and once he was put down, he was finding every stick possible and would not put them down! When it comes to family sessions, you basically just focus on whatever the kid wants to do and work around it, which is exactly what we had to do.
Thorin was having so much fun playing peek-a-boo with the leaves!
In the beginning, I mentioned that I photographed Throin’s first birthday photos! Here are a couple comparisons from them to now!
Being able to photograph families as they grow is a big reason why I love what I do! Even though I have not seen the Barnes family in a year, I still remember Thorin’s personality at 1 years old and now seeing him at 2 years old is so crazy! He has so much more energy and watching him explore a new place is so much fun. I got the news that they will be leaving Maryland in April and I’m so sad that I won’t be able to capture her 3 year photos! Hopefully I get to work with them again before they leave. 🙂
