Sheldon Turns One

Last week this little guy turned one! We were hoping the snow would stay away until after his shoot, it did!!!  It was chilly though and by the end of the evening it felt like the temperature had dropped 20 degrees.  But, the weather wasn't the big challenge, I was the big challenge.  Sheldon does not like photographers!  I don't blame him.  It's not easy being the model, I can relate, it's not my cup of tea either.   A faceless person holding a big black foreign object, who is acting like a dork trying to get me to react, while I'm freezing my heinie off.  I agree with you buddy, it doesn't sound like a fun party!    

Thank goodness for long lenses.  Standing at a distance was key!  With his siblings pretending to beat each other up behind me, we were able to capture some smiles, whatever works!!

"thanks for the bagel, but I'm still mad, nice try"

"it's my birthday, I will cry if I want to!"

Happy with me at a distance

When I got closer and he saw me!

Sheldon you are such a sweetie, thank you for enduring this scary lady and letting me capture your cuteness!  Happy Birthday!!!

Pin It!

  2. My first time stopping by your blog. These pics are fantastic!!! The baby has GORGEOUS eyes!

  3. I love the 3rd one and the one of him crying. Too cute!!

  4. Great Pictures Linsey! I'd say 1 year olds are probably the hardest to photograph and you did a great job!
