When I first posted a sneak peek from Evan’s one year photo shoot, I received a number of messages from friends asking how I’d photoshopped his eyes to make them appear so blue. Want to know my secret?? I didn’t photoshop them at all! But if you know Evan, you know that’s no secret- his eyes are the most beautiful sea blue and they shine magnificently in the sunlight.
Like his big brother, Luke, who I have photographed five times now, this child totally has my heart. Not only is he as cute as can be, but he’s also the first baby I have had the pleasure of photographing for an entire “Baby’s First Year” cycle. I got to photograph his mom, Bethlyn, for the first time during a Christmas mini-session when she was pregnant for him, I photographed him again at birth, again at six months, and then again for this shoot to mark his first birthday.
I hope you enjoy the smiley face of this adorable little guy as much as I do, as well as the few shots I included of Bethlyn in the frame as she assisted in situated a runaway Evan. Sometimes my favorite photos end up being the outtakes.
