This “lil’ cajun hushpuppy” is the son of some friends of mine from college (Chico State, late 90s). Did you know I grew up in Southern California (San Diego), went to college in Northern California (Chico), and then I worked as a high school teacher in both Sacramento, CA and Portland, OR before moving to Pittsburgh in 2012? SO much has changed, and I was so happy to reconnect with old friends who are new parents!
Some mutual friends of ours got married in Portland last month, so this little sweetie’s mama asked me to photograph her little guy while I was there, and I am so crazy about how they turned out! Now only is he just SO cute, but I liked the blanket in the background and how different the landscape looks than here… though our grass is pretty dead now that it has hardly rained since June in Pittsburgh!
I got really emotional when I was working on these images! There is just something really simultaneously special and just so nuts about starting a new life as a mom and dad. I am so excited for these guys and so excited to watch baby Fisher grow into a little man.
We had a wonderful trip to Portland and I admit I miss it a lot, but I am definitely happy here in the ‘Burgh and don’t see us moving, ever.
