Evan’s mom Heather and I go waaaaaay back. We worked together for years at a certain health insurance company, and as I neared the end of that chapter of my life in 2007 she had found love…. marriage….. and recently, the baby carriage! Evan is one year old! In the past few weeks he had his first birthday party, a dinosaur cake which he tried to eat the whole thing, and finally his 1-year portraits with me.
His hair is a legend already amongst certain circles. He’s already had four haircuts in his first year. I couldn’t believe some of his early baby pictures–you just have NEVER seen a baby with this much hair. But he did. And he loves his wagon. We did photos in a variety of poses but the best ones are in his Radio Flyer wagon, because he just lit up any time he was in it. Clearly this is what he’s into right now.
I love photos of children in front of the house where they live. It gives a sense of time and place to this part of their lives…… maybe Evan will be living here when he’s older, and maybe he won’t. But it’s an important part of his story right now!
I enjoyed meeting this little man and can’t wait to see what kind of little boy he’s going to grow into. Thanks, Heather and Marc!
