I met Tracy last fall–A mutual friend introduced us because we were both pregnant, and fairly new to Portland. We met up and chatted–she was so nice and we had a lot in common, besides the bellies–we both had worked in education, and had both traveled in Europe while pregnant. It was fantastic to talk to someone going through the same kinds of experiences as I was.
She had her son about a month before I had my twin boys. We’ve talked about how fun it will be to have playdates with all three boys! I got to meet Tommy a couple times before this, and he’s just adorable and fun. He has this great big smile, but also a very serious gaze. So I was really excited to photograph him and the whole family! Tommy (and his parents!) did such a great job playing and being cute for the camera. 🙂 Look at them–such an adorable family, right?!
We’d meant to do this as a six-month session, but ended up rescheduling a couple times–so Tommy was eight months old. We did this lifestyle session in their home, so he was very comfortable in his surroundings. He was not sure what to make of me at first, but I think he warmed up to me. 🙂 Since we were in the living room with all his toys, he showed me all his favorite things–he loves to jump, play the guitar, gaze at books, and he just started crawling–like while I was there!
