one year old cooper

Just look at this ONE year old! Isn’t he adorable?!

I met up with Cooper and his mom last fall for his one year photos at Harnischfeger Park. I went to high school with his mom and probably haven’t seen her since then. So, you know, a FEW years ago… Anyway, I was super excited to hear from her and to hear she wanted photos! 

It was a cool and windy fall morning when we met. I had a few props along, like a chair. For some reason Cooper loved it and walked circles around it. 

He did so well during his session. His only displeasure was wearing the firetruck hat which his mom really wanted pictures of since Cooper's dad is a firefighter. Somehow I snuck a couple pictures before he ripped it off [this may have taken a few tries though] and I'm glad too because I love that hat!  

I'm glad I got to meet this smiley one year old and catch up with his mom between snapping pictures.
