Houston Fine Art Children’s Photographer | Louis
Children are such a blessing. If you have kids of your own, you’ve probably stopped at some point to ponder just how fast it all goes. There’s a popular poem written in 1958 by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton, a mother of five, that describes the bittersweet feeling all too well. In ‘Song for a Fifth Child’ she so eloquently writes about the pressures of keeping a clean and tidy house, and maintaining everything else on our checklist, all while our children grow right under our nose. It’s a sweet reminder to slow down and take in every precious moment.
Capturing Louis’ Budding Personality
I love when I get to watch my clients’ children grow. I’ve photographed Louis since he was a newborn, and he just celebrated his third birthday! When preparing for a children’s session, I like to get an idea of their interests. This not only keeps them occupied during the session, but it also ensures we capture not only what they look like, but who they are. Louis brought all his favorite books and trucks, along with his lamby that is very worn with love.
We took some photos of him in his first tuxedo, which he attended his first ballet in beside his mama. He also wore his bow tie that we’ve used to document his growth since his newborn session. I enjoy each and every session I create for this family, and I loved the amount of sentiment that went with this one. I know when Louis’s mom sees all the pictures of him in his sweet bow tie in the years to come, she’ll hear the words of Ruth Hulburt Hamilton ring true: “the cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep. I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep”.
It has been such an amazing treat getting to capture Louis’ progress throughout these past three years as his Houston Fine Art Children’s Photographer! Make sure to check out more cuties like this one from La Vie Photography!
