I arrived at this little guy's house for his 1 year session while he was still taking a nap. Which gave his mom (whom I've known since I was my daughters age) and I a few minutes to catch up. When we heard him making some noise upstairs, his mom went up to get him and brought him down in full smiles!! As a childrens photographer and a mom myself, I know that right after nap time can typically be a rough transition for the little one...they are still a bit sleepy and just want to cuddle with mom and eat. The last thing they want is for someone to come at them with a camera! But not this little guy, he was amazing! He sat right down and flashed that cute grin and we went to town! He was soo good! Even when it came time for his cake smash...he dug right in! Hands, feet, and face! Happy Birthday Braden!
and after we were done, there was enough left unsmashed for his big sister to enjoy! ~HSP
