I love meeting new people, but when I’m not working, I can be a little reserved and quiet until I get to know you. Being a photographer actually puts me outside of my comfort zone and forces me to interact more with new people than I am usually comfortable with. I’ve been really lucky that my clients had all been pretty open and friendly people. Ashley and her family were no exception. From the moment she opened the door to her home in Beachwood, I felt welcome and at ease. I had the best time photographing her son, Tatum.
Tatum had turned one just a few days earlier and I was eager to meet him. Ashley had already sent me photos of the family, his outfits and the decorations around their home that she and her husband, Josh, had ready. Having parents that are photographers in Cali, Ashley already new what to expect and what to have ready. The setups around their home were, in a word, perfect.
See for yourself…
Tatum had an adorable circus tent in his living room to play peek-a-boo in!
His bedroom was beyond adorable!
Yes, we really like the tent!
I loved Ashley and Josh’s bedroom. Clean and simple with a gorgeous pop of color from their headboard. I usually LOVE black and white images, but the colors from this session just beg to be shared!
Toddlers never really want to sit for pictures…and the outtakes were great
The cake was simple with yogurt on top. Why fill your baby up with sugar he isn’t used to getting?! Great idea by Ashley. I loved the teal door behind Tatum in these shots to with the multi color flag banner they used for his circus themed birthday. They definitely made his session one of kind, which is always the best!
