Children are unabashedly silly. They roughhouse. They ham it up. They’re sweet. They have quiet moments. They throw tantrums. ALL of these emotions are honest, beautiful, and, part of every day life. My documentary sessions capture all of this and more. I always feel like I walk away with photographs that capture various personalities and family dynamics. I don’t pose these pictures, kids just show me who they are! I was thrilled to document this 1 year old’s birthday with a pool party and cake…my favorite things!
