I've known Kai since he was six days old, and I feel so lucky I get to capture these moments for his family. To celebrate his second birthday, I followed him around Boulevard Park on a Tuesday morning for sweet father-son photos. It wouldn't be a Kai-session without handfuls of rocks and noses covered in whipped cream. :)
Kai was hesitant at first, but it didn't take too long for him to dive into his blue Dinosaurs in Space themed cake (made by my talented friend Lilli and myself). I had been looking forward to his first birthday cake smash since the day he was born, and it didn't disappoint. From the dinosaur cupcakes to the re-purposed baby food jars, this birthday was all DIY and full of love. I feel so lucky to be friends with this family and to watch Kai grow.
Capturing little Kai's life brings me so much joy. It took us four months, but we finally rallied together for family portraits. I'd say it was worth the wait! Locust beach in Bellingham, WA at sunset.
