He’s got a baby brother now, who looks just like him when he was that age.
But my godson didn’t stay that age. It’s been awhile since I took some pictures of him, but last Saturday, when we were out with the whole family, I got and took the chance. It was an excellent setting. In the middle of one of those typical Finnish scenes: a field full of blooming, bright yellow oilseed. We were on our way back to the car and he was just walking there with mom and dad, fussing with the flowers. The light was beautiful, and right in his face. So I looked at mom and dad and they were okay with it, and even helped the little guy pose. I’d say he’s a natural.
And he’s the cutest! Ever! Period! <3

We’ll stay with kids for a bit.
A few weeks ago I was asked to shoot some pictures for the first birthday of one of my friends’ kids.
I shot their wedding last year, just after the boy was born and it just keeps on surprising me how much kids change in their first year(s). I see it happen with my godson all the time.
I hadn’t seen this little boy in awhile and it just struck me. He looks wise beyond his years. So much more mature than just one year old.
He was a bit grumpy before dinner, but after dinner he was just the happiest little guy in the world!

I know… I KNOW!!!
But I just can’t help it!

I also have one with him putting food all over his face, but I’ll spare you that one πŸ˜‰

Note to self: take picture BEFORE dinner, or wipe face after dinner, because using Photoshop to clean the face is a serious pain in the behind!

Noa
