When Your Aunt is a Photographer…

You will get a photo shoot for your first birthday present. And a blog post to go with it.

I am so lucky to be an aunt to my four delightfully spunky nieces, and taking photos of them is one of my favorite things. I love photography, and I cannot think of a single moment that I have not enjoyed being behind a camera. And I enjoy it that much more when I get to photograph people that I love. For Lydia’s first birthday, her mama brought her up to Athens for some strawberry picking and her birthday photo shoot.

Photography makes a pretty cool gift, whether you’re related to a photographer or not. It’s meaningful. It doesn’t take up space. And it lasts a lifetime. (Eh hm, if you back-up or print your photos and don’t leave them sitting on a hard drive.) The gift of capturing this moment in time- I know I would love to receive that wrapped up in a box.

Today was a perfect spring day. And look at this perfect face…
