I’m sure many of you recognize this beautiful family from their session with me back in November, and I’m sure all of you remember Noah, the little guy with the gorgeous eyes and killer wardrobe.

I was privileged enough to spend the morning of Noah’s actual 2nd birthday with him, his mom Shireen, and his dad Juby at an arboretum. As usual, Noah was in a fantastic mood. I sometimes wonder if he is EVER in a bad mood. Either way, his happiness is absolutely contagious, and he is kind beyond words…even at such a young age. If you were to spend 5 minutes with his parents you’d see exactly where he gets it from. They are by far some of the sweetest clients I’ve ever worked with.

We were some of the only people at the arboretum that day which gave us a ton of options for photos! Since I’ve worked with Noah and his family before, and we keep in close contact, I was really looking forward to this session. Plus, I would get to see my little Noah! We walked around, got some great shots, and chatted for a while. Shireen brought along a cake so we could attempt a cake smash at the end of the session, and as you will see in the pictures Noah was nothing but manners, and had no part of smashing anything. He sat quietly and ate the cookies off of the cake.

Shireen and Juby are expecting their second baby in August. I am thrilled that I am able to watch such a wonderful family grow, and be such a big part of documenting it. Keep an eye out for their maternity session within the next couple months, and a newborn session in August!!

Thank you, Shireen and Juby, for being so easy to work with, and being such supportive clients and friends!

For those of you who ask

Yes, Noah’s eye REALLY do sparkle…

Yes, his mom is that gorgeous…

Yes, watching Noah and his dad together melts my heart too…
