Being able to capture a moment and truly preserve it is wonderful. When that moment involves your own God son, it is even more magical watching him grow. So when our dear friends and newlyweds Kelsey and Chad announced they were expecting, we were so excited for them.
Last year we had the honor of capturing his newborn session, and this year, we took a small road trip to Panama City to celebrate his 1st birthday. Since we spent the weekend in Panama City with them, we were able to capture Oliver in his own element just playing and being himself.
We were excited to take him to the beach. He loves playing in the dirt, he ought to love the beach, or so we thought. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with the sand or the water. However, he was happy in Daddy’s arms when Daddy began to toss him into the air as he squealed with delight.
With best plans made, sleeping and nap time taken into account to have prime time for this little boy, one years old often still have a mind of their own and with that said, we were able to capture memories for the scrap book which Chad and Kelsey will never forget. Whether laughing, smiling or crying, Ollie let his own character shine!
