This family from Waycross, Georgia contacted me about doing a beach birthday session for their little boy who had just recently turned 3 years old. Of course right away I thought about Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island! Where else to take an adventerous young man! They requested a few posed images, but asked that the rest be more of a lifestyle type session. Right.Up.My.Alley! I am really loving the lifestyle sessions lately. It's the best of both worlds, really. Not only do I get to capture a few posed shots, but I also get to capture family member interactions, children interacting with each other and children interaction with their environment. The sole focus of this birthday session was to capture Lucas doing what he does best: exploring and checking things out! I followed him everywhere. Man, did he have so much energy! He was so enraptured by everything he saw; so inquisitive, looking above and below everything he came across. Want to know what the best part of the session was? He sang to me! Yep. He sang to me! Old MacDonald Had a Farm. Over and over again. It was so cute and made for some great images. Here's just a few of my favorites:
And my personal favorite: a memory image of all his favorite things right now. How great will this be to look back on years from now and re-read all about his favorite things??
