Raleigh one year old mini session photoHappy almost 4th of July!!!! I hope everyone is managing to have some fun while not melting in the extreme heat this week!  All my boys want to do is play outside. All I want to do is hide in the air conditioning haha!  I typically try and give them some good outdoor play time in some morning shade before the heat and sun get too bad.  If I can keep them contained to shade it also means one less time of trying to herd feral cats while attempting to slather them in sunscreen.  Anyone else’s kids hate that process?!  Cason is getting better about it- as long as I PROMISE not to get it in his eyes, but Colten. Whew! I pretty much just pin him down and let him wail while I protect that smooth baby skin haha. Anyways- let’s get back to our regularly scheduled Raleigh one year old mini session haha!!

For this sweet session back in the middle of May we lucked up and had almost unseasonably cool weather!  It was a perfect evening for pictures at Historic Oakview Park!  My husband was meeting me there to take the boys so I even snuck in a few cute pictures of them!! (check out my instagram stories if you’re reading this the day it’s published)  At the end of this session we went to a spot where my husband happened to be playing with the boys. Cason was so excited to help get Blakely to smile for a few.  He did a great job and I loved that he got to see me working!

While Cason really did try, he could have just stood there and we still would have gotten great smiles from this little one!! She was so happy and had the best laugh!!! I looked at her dad at one point and said “please tell me you have this sweet sound on video!” He laughed and said they video it all the time.  This family was just the sweetest to work with. I loved being a part of freezing memories for them to remember what 1 year old Blakely was like!!
