Last month when I was back home in Santa Barbara I was asked by my dear friends Lisa & Mike to take 1 year portraits of their little baby boy Chase. I can’t believe he is one already.
Originally we were going to go to a park… but I always love photographing families in their homes so much more. Its more natural… the baby is happy, the parents have every they need… and most importantly it captures what their lives actually look like at a time and space.
So… Mike might kill me for saying this… but our nickname for Mike is “model mike”… well… watching the way Chase works the camera… I see the apple didn’t fall far from the tree… this boy knows how to work it like Zoolander.. every time I went to put my camera away… there he was looking adorable again. Mike you’ve got some competition on your hands… I just wonder if he can dance to Single Girls in the same way… hahahaha
Lisa & Mike… it was so much fun to hang out with you and be able to capture your lives with Chase. You two are such beautiful, caring and amazing parents. The joy and love you have for each other and Chase is so clear and evident in the pics. Can’t wait to see you again very soon!
Love and miss you guys
