The last time I saw Rowan he was just learning to sit up and hardly had any hair. What a difference half a year makes! I’ve been photographing this little guy since he was just a week old. It’s been so cool for me to see how much he’s changed with each session. The 1 year session for me is always bitter sweet, as I usually only get to see the kiddies and parents for the holidays after that. But it’s all good. I love my job and it truly is an honor to be chosen to photograph such a special time in a child’s life.
Since Rowan is a Huntington Beach local, we decided to shoot the session in his “backyard”. Ro’s been walking for a little over a month now, but this was his first time on the beach. Mom and dad weren’t too sure how stable he’d be in the sand, but I tell ya, this boy is a natural! He had me chasing him around the beach kickin’ up sand in his trail! Seriously, though, Rowan loved the beach and was particularly fascinated with surfboards. Being a surfer, I think that’s awesome! We had a great time and Rowan was the perfect little beach boy. Check it out:
Isn’t this the coolest shirt? He got splashed 5 minutes into our session:

Love the way his nose crinkled when he did this:

Thanks for a great year of photos guys! See you for the holidays!
Here’s a little year in review video with all the photos from our last session (it’s got sound). Give it a minute to load :-)
