I really really love doing a first birthday photo shoot. Especially in Ridley Creek State Park in the spring. So much fun! One year olds are fun to take pictures of because captivating their attention is usually not that difficult. They love showing off the new things they have learned and if you know their favorite song (Itsy bitsy spider, anyone?) you are golden. All of this was true for adorable little Ben. He was a joy to photograph. He was so expressive and easy to please. He also really loved his birthday cake… especially the blue frosting which he enjoyed sharing with Dad. I had a great time with Ben and his family at Ridley Creek State Park and I hope they get as much joy from their photos as I did in taking them.
