Baby's First Year for Lawrence and Titania

I love this couple. From their wedding until now, they have been great. Now there is more to love about them with their baby son. For this session they chose to mingle with the vibrant colors of a local playground. Nothing says baby more than bright colors.
With my extra gear in my backpack, the baby bag and my two cameras, we started off with a few posed shots since the baby was into it. The 50mm f/1.4 was great for the opening shot, but I switched to my trusty 70-200mm f/2.8 for the lovely portraits.
Toward the end as the sun began to get lower in the sky, I decided to give the photos a kiss of flash to brighten up the family while maintaining a decent background. For the photo below, I blew out most of the frame and then brought it back in with post production exposure to give it a special look.

Every family has a story and this one has beautiful stories.

I forgot to mention that Lawrence took every chance he could to take his son down the slides. An avid runner at this park, Lawrence had never came to the playground (I think he will return often).

Titania told me that she brought their son to the park once before so that he could experience the sound of the children's laughter. How sweet.
