It's amazing how fast time flies. We're awakened to that fact every time one of our wedding clients from years past gets in touch with us to schedule a portrait session with their new baby, which is exactly what happened a few weeks ago with Celina, Sam and 6-week-old James.
We shot Celina and Sam's wedding in 2005 at the Bear Creek Country Club in Woodinville, although it feels like last year, or maybe the year before. It was great to see that they're doing well, and James is a total cutie! We conducted the portrait session in their beautiful North Seattle home, where James would be at his most comfortable. He did great, too — and I'm happy and relieved that I managed to catch a few shots of the one smile he cracked!
Such a cheeky little boy! Look at him flirting with mom.
Dad gets into the action, too.
James looks a little concerned to see such a big dog licking his lips ... but then promptly falls asleep anyway.
It was a cold and rainy day, so our outdoors work was limited to the front and back porches, with heavy bundling. Still worth it to get some extra variety, though!
Pretty darn cute, eh? And he already has a lot more hair at 6 weeks than our little guy has at 6 months!
Congrats to Celina and Sam, and welcome to the world, James!
