Baby Jack is 1!

Baby Jack is a year old!  To finish off his first year baby plan, we headed to Mellon Park in Pittsburgh for a family session. We shot this session around 6 pm when the lighting was just right! Usually babies do okay at this hour for a family session because there is so much to look at that they are able to hang in there a little later than usual. Jack did great!

The middle photo Jack is showing off his sign language skills (“more”)–this is something I SO wish I had taught my kids when they were babies… it just gives them so much more control over communication when they aren’t quite able to talk yet.  I think it must take the frustration level for babies down a couple notches.  This little guy is super content and happy every time I’ve seen him, so something is working! 🙂

One of Jack’s favorite snacks is peanut butter puffs–a strange delicacy found at convenience stores all over, but one I hadn’t tried before.  He was kind enough to let me try one, and I have to say… I get it.

At the end of Jack’s session we let him roam free, and I caught these images of him closer to sunset.  I used my hand to shield the sunlight from coming directly into my lens, which gave the top of some of these images a hazy pink quality that I really like.  Do you see it?

Jack–you are the sweetest little guy and I am going to miss seeing you every few months!  Happy birthday!
