I had such a fun time capturing these beautiful moments for Aiden. When Maria first contacted me, she told me she wanted a photography session because Aiden was turning 6. I met with both of them to get to know them, especially Aiden. I found out that his favorite thing to do is go to the beach, so naturally, we decided on a beach session. Maria warned me that they had had some bad experiences with photographers in the past, and she said that her family was not photogenic, which is obviously NOT the case. Our beach day session started out smoothly, Aiden is shy, but he quickly got used to my camera and silly jokes. I was able to capture some beautiful moments between him and Maria, but one of my favorite moments of the session was when Jesus, Aiden’s dad, chased Aiden and thew him up in the air. We spent some time running up and down the beach and letting them have fun and enjoy their time together. The photographs below are able to portray the happiness and connection of that day, and to be honest, they are some of my favorite photographs to date. We finished the session with a little “knock, knock. Who’s there?” and I gotta tell you, this kid knows some funny jokes! Aiden.. Knock, knock. Who’t there? Atch. Atch who? Bless you!
