Every year, before HJ’s birthday, I get yearly pictures taken.  Last year, we went to Main Street for his 4 year old shoot.  For his 3 year old shoot we were in the woods.  This year, we opted for beautiful fall leaves and scenery (and luckily it was beautiful weather).  I contacted a girl I know from college, Beth.  She takes pictures as a side job, and it is clear she has a passion for photography.

My handsome boy was excited to play in the leaves, and loved to give different facial expressions.

In addition to his pictures, I had her take some of both of us.

I am thrilled with how beautiful his pictures turned out, and will definitely be looking to Beth for our future pictures.  If you are in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area, I can pass along her information.

Now I need to pick which one to use for his yearly canvas.  What picture would you choose?


2 Thoughts on “HJ’s 5 Year Old Photoshoot

  1. They’re all SO cute! I think my top favorites are: #1, 4 and 5 for his canvas.

    The pictures couldn’t have turned out any better! Leaves were a perfect contrast. Hard to pick just one picture of HJ, but I’d say #4 or 5. Excellent smiles 🙂

    P.S. Anyone could tell by simply looking at these pictures…you’re a great mama and you two have a special bond.
