Recently, I got to hang out with this bundle of hilarious energy named Stryker. He and I have some history, as I photographed his mom's maternity photos, his newborn photos, 6 months, 8 months, and now his one year portraits. I'm a pretty lucky lady. We started our session at Marks Melon Patch in Albany, Ga around 8 or 9 am. This is the best place to go during the fall season if you're in the Albany area! And if you're in the Albany area, you probably already know this ;) Enough talking, let's get to Stryker and his cuteness...
I seeeeeee you!
Stryker is one year old!
He loves to test the waters and see what his limits are. And he gets into EVERYTHING!
Stryker absolutely loves to be silly. He thinks it's hilarious when people sneeze. Therefore, he pretends to sneeze ALL THE TIME, just to get a reaction! ;)
Bath time is his favorite, along with seeing how soaked he can get Mommy before it's all over with...
He makes changing his diaper the hardest tasks and slips away in a second- major ninja moves. He is 100% a mamas boy and loves using her like a personal jungle gym...
He also likes to shake his head "no" back to his mom, after she tells him "no"...
There is nothing better than good ole Mickey Mouse- the only show that will keep him still for longer than a millisecond...
He could eat 24/7. Especially pb&j's, currently his favorite food.
We didn't have any pb&j's, but I think a cupcake did the trick ;)
Shooting a baby's first birthday portraits are one of my favorite type of sessions! We get to be creative, expressive, and capture the essence of a child exactly the way they are at THAT moment in time. A moment that slips away so quickly.
To Stryker, his mom and dad, thank you guys so much for including me into this sweet and entertaining time in your lives! I always love spending time with you and can NOT wait to see how much you've grown the next time we meet!!!

I've heard it said that "love is in the details." and Kiaris' baby shower proved that to be true. The venue, at Chehaw Park in Albany, Georgia, was carefully decorated with charm. A special event such as this doesn't just magically come together so sweetly without putting time and love into it. I could tell a lot of planning went to this, not to mention the time setting everything up. It was all worth it for a wonderful afternoon shower, celebrating baby Mason before his big arrival.
As family and friends arrived to the shower, they added their name to a onesie, grabbed their advice cards and began mingling with other guests.
Once most of the guests had arrived, it was time to start the games!
After a couple of games, guests ate lunch, had some cake, and played a quick Baby Edition of The Price is Right!
Lastly, Kiaris opened gifts from her friends and family!
Kiaris Kennon is a beautiful, loved young woman. When she asked me to photograph her baby shower, I knew it would be a good time, and that's exactly what it was! To Kiaris and family, thank you so much for welcoming me into your lives to capture this fun day! I can't wait to see you again soon!!! xoxo
Some of the decor was made by Kiaris herself, like the framed onesie hanger. Some of the paper decor were printed at a local print shop, however you can also order similar styles from Etsy so I've included those links below.
