I photographed Louis through his whole first year, but when he came to see me for his second birthday a whole year had passed and he wanted nothing to do with me. He wouldn’t even look at me while he clung to his mommy and his toy hammer. Until… I asked him to come help me fix a couple of things in my studio with his special hammer. Oh boy did his face light up!! He gladly helped me hammer a little here and a little there until we were all smiles and giggles. Of course after the studio was fixed he gladly sat for his portraits and was a total ham while in front of my camera.
We’re a quarter of the way through this year, and his session still stands out in my mind as one of my favorites for 2016 so far 😀
