Had the privilege of photographing this little guy’s first year birthday party. It was an amazing event, beautifully decorated down to the candy table. Now he is 2 and all boy. It was so much fun to chase him around the Manhattan Beach Pier and watch him play with his parents. I “wanted” him to sit in my little chair and pose for some photos, but he definitely had other ideas. My favorite part of this session was how much everyone enjoyed playing in the sand and in the water and all the hugs and giggles. Sometimes sessions don’t always go exactly as planned, but these are some of my favorites.
