It was a beautiful spring afternoon at Charlie and Merritt’s home in the Upstate of SC. ? It took a lot of work to get this sweet boy to smile for his 8 month portraits. ?Ironically, it seems almost every portrait session I do with this family falls around a holiday which their mom loves. ?We incorporated Charlie and Merritt’s Easter outfits into this outdoor session. ?Charlie was unsure about the grass and being outdoors. ?Therefore, I finished his session inside where I used a shallow depth of field so you could not tell they were taken inside the family play room. ?In between shots of Charlie, I was able to capture a few cute ones of Merritt as well. ?I look forward to their 1 and 2 year portraits this summer. ?If you are interested in a baby bundle package to capture your child’s first year, be sure to call Katie at 803-413-2427 to discuss options.
