Allow me to introduce Baby John, cutie pie extraordinaire! He’s one smiley, sweet guy who has just started crawling and is curious about everything. And might I also introduce his UVA lovin’ family: Joy, Chip and pup Ralphie. Ralphie was very excited to be in as many pictures as possible, or maybe it was more about getting into as many laps as possible, but it was enthusiasm all the same.
Ralphie won this race but John will take him soon enough!
Joy teaches Spanish and John’s nursery organically grew around the unique theme of Spanish bull fighting through posters they already owned. Joy added framed illustrations from a children’s book (Ferdinand the Bull maybe?) right above the crib, how cool is that? Unfortunately I lost the light in the nursery too quickly and only got a few shots but it’s the most unique and fun boy theme I have seen.
We went outside a few times and took photos in the glory of fall. Many families go to studios to get backdrops like these but how cool is it to have this kind of beauty in your front yard?
My favs came from family play time on their bed. John loves to be flipped around and thrown in pillows, it cracks him up. Its a milestone when baby boys grow sturdy enough to be thrown around, I love these playful shots:
This is such a great mommy moment, babies are always playing with our hair, its painfully sweet. Hmmm, I wonder where John got his beautiful, strawberry blonde locks from?
Dads don’t always have as much hair to grab but boys love being cuddled in big, strong arms:
We even got the whole fam on the bed for a pose!
Here’s the slideshow . John, Joy and Chip, it was awesome to meet you and spend the afternoon. Thank you so much for inviting me into your home. I can’t wait to do it again!
