Austin First Birthday Photography | Well This Might be the Cutest Face Ever | Austin, TX | Zilker Botanical Gardens


My heart is squealing with delight. I just started uploading these photos from this mornings session at Zilker Botanical Gardens and my heart might burst. This guy just let me take cute shot after cute shot. He was so adorable! He got sleepy about halfway through his session but it didn’t even mater because he was so cooperative and cute early on. He just makes your heart melt. He LOVED this car!  And, I love this whole family. I photographed this little guy about 9 months ago when he was only three months old. Funny thing, he fell asleep during that session too. Being photographed is exhausting.

Anyway, love it, love them. I have the BEST clients.

Also, let me take a minute here to point out the importance of pretty light. We started this shoot at 7:30 a.m. folks. I know it can be rough, but it is totally worth it. Austin is a bright sunny place and if you start your session too late you are going to be fighting the sun the entire time. I was a happy photographer this morning working with good light all around.

More to come!
