At the beginning of April, I had the honor and pleasure of photographing a good friend of mine and her sweet young family. Kelly and I went to college together and met in our sorority Sigma Kappa. Among the many good college times that were had by all, Facebook helped us keep in touch after school. When Kelly told me that Colin was turning one and she wanted me to do his photographs, I was ecstatic! It was also a great chance for me to meet her husband and get caught up on her new life. Kelly and Scott met after school, so I hadn’t had a chance to meet him. When I saw photos of them on Facebook, I knew that Colin would be precious! And he is!!
Look at those eyes!! Look at that hair!! I loved him instantly.
Kelly found a park for us to go to near downtown Northville in MI. I had never been to Mill Race Village so I was very excited to scope out this new location. It was perfect! Old buildings and bright colors really brightened the early spring background we were working with. Not to mention Colin’s fantastic argyle sweater. Don’t you want to eat him up?
Like any normal model…Colin started to get hungry after all his hard work. This made for hilarious photos.
Kelly, I love that family photo of you guys! The wind kicked up and Scott predicted this photo would look like a music video. I say it’s even better!
The wagon shot is one of my favorites. Such a fantastic part of childhood – wagon rides!
Dad’s give the best rides….Colin is either preparing for liftoff here or just coming in for a landing.
Kelly and Scott…thank you so much for spending the afternoon with me and letting me get to know your precious little guy. I had such a wonderful time. The love in your family radiates through every picture. Can’t wait to see what life brings to Colin in his second year! xoxoxo
