As a photographer I have always been obsessed with capturing my boys in their world. As they and my business have grown, I find myself taking less pictures of them each year. This year I really want to get back to what started me on my journey of photography, my boys!
For those that don’t know, my youngest, Liam who is eight LOVES to cook. Since he could hold a whisk in his hand, he’s wanted to be a chef. Liam has a bookshelf full of cookbooks that he often reads to bed. Cooking is his thing! So when we put on the calendar that we were going to bake Blueberry Muffins from one of his cookbooks, I couldn’t resist the photo opportunity to capture him in his element!
Liam is an early riser like myself. He couldn’t wait to get to cooking. He patiently waited as I finished my coffee and tidied the kitchen so he could get to work. After he began the process of combining all the ingredients to his muffins, he realized he had forgotten an important detail… he needed his chef attire. So he quickly changed. Feeling mighty proud of his new look he jumped right back into what he was working on. It was the cutest thing!
I found much joy in watching him take the lead. He needed very little guidance or help from me. This little boy blows me away and his blueberry muffins were fantastic. You can ask our neighbors as he delivered some to their family as well.
I love being this kid’s mom!
If you’d like to have a lifestyle session with your child, please feel free to contact me as this is something I’m very passionate about! Memories like this last a lifetime! I’m so glad I pulled my camera out to document it!
