Little Jerry! What can I say about this child, except OMG, IS HE REAL? Can you even look at his sweet little face and incredible, fuzzy hair without smiling? Impossible, right?
Jerry's parents (also absurdly cute) were nervous he'd be grumpy for me because he wasn't lovin' life prior to the shoot—but we lucked out! This dude is a pro. He busted out several smiles for us and saved any discontent for the very end of our time together. I'm not sure a session with a six month old could possibly go more smoothly. Well done, cutie!
I know how fortunate I am that, as part of my job, I get to see families interact with each other; I LOVE this. I especially enjoy watching parents with their firstborn. Everything's so new and exciting to them, and when I'm in the middle of all this, behind my camera, it takes me right back to those early days with my Arlo, when I didn't even know what else was going on around me; I just knew I was a happy, lucky (and tired) MOMMY.
Okay, Jerry's Mom and Dad, thank you for allowing me to photograph your family of three, and thank you for bringing your amazing little boy into the world; he's going to make a lot of people really, really happy.
