lucas turns one

Can you believe it? This little guy turned ONE last year. 

A few weeks before his birthday, I met up with his parents at Lapham Peak for some pictures. Lucas had been walking around 10 months old, so he was on the move this whole session. 

He was quite excited at first but then the excitement died down a bit after a half hour. However, then his dad brought out his old tractor and Lucas' eyes lit up. Maybe I should also mention one of his first words [if not first] was tractor. He was so excited there was a tractor his size to sit on. 

A couple weeks later, close friends and family got together to celebrate this wonderful one year old. He was a little unsure about his smash cake at first, but soon dug in and proceeded to get frosting just about everywhere. 

After he was cleaned up, Lucas had help opening his gifts before joining his cousins running around and playing outdoors. It's safe to say this guy had a pretty good birthday! 

the S family

Last May I met this wonderful family. They wanted some family pictures before their newest addition arrived. 

We met one night before sunset at Lapham Peak. Alan was raring to go. He did so well with taking pictures, but honestly probably had more fun running around. Or collecting pine cones and throwing them. I don't blame him. 

It was a beautiful evening to spend with this family of 3, soon to be 4. 

A couple months later I was able to see everyone again, including Robin! What a doll she was. 

Here are some of my photos from the second session with the family. Alan makes a pretty great big brother, don't you think? 

Thanks again for the fun sessions guys!
