I typically don’t document events (except for the occasional wedding), but when an amazing local photographer contacted me to document her baby’s first birthday, how could I say no?! Gabriella Hunt is fellow documentary photographer, and we connected through Facebook when she was looking for other local documentary photographers. I’m so glad she found me! What a joy it was to follow her son, Nathaniel, around for a few hours and photograph these moments for Gabriella and her family. You will probably be able to tell through these pictures that Nate never stops moving, pretty much smiles all the time, and maybe liked his cake, just a little bit. 😉 Did I mention Gabriella is also a super talented baker and made all the goodies/cake you see in these images! The party was full of laughs, fun entertainment by Topher Holt, and of course farm animals! Thank you Gabriella, Geoffrey, and big sister Charlotte for inviting me to document and be a part of Nate’s special day!
