Luke was so excited for his photoshoot at Kissimmee Lakefront Park. Dressed in the cutest first birthday outfit, he kept smiling as we walked through the park. Mom put him down and he stood there, looked at us, and gave us the cutest little smile. We coached him to walk towards us. He took 5 steps and boom, fell forward. He cried. It hurt him and he was not willing to try again.
I love watching kids grow. Seeing Luke fall was heartbreaking but I knew that that was one of the many falls he’ll have. He will fall and learn to get up again. He’ll learn to persevere and he’ll learn to overcome his fears.
Trang & Luke, thank you for letting me capture you first birthday session! Being able to document this milestone was an honor! Happy Birthday and may your many years be filled with more smiles (and a lot less falls)! PS, thanks for trusting me on the weather, I knew the sun would come out and give us some light to give Luke’s photos that glow that I love!
