Last week I got together with the R family for Jaxon's one year old session at Squire's Castle. Just a little over a month ago I photographed Lindsey and Rich's wedding (where Jaxon was the ring bearer!), so it was so much fun to get together again for a laid-back evening in the North Chagrin Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks. It was supposed to thunderstorm, but the rain held off just long enough for us to get some great shots around the park.
We started in front of Squire's Castle, and Lindsey and Rich brought lots of creative supplies and ideas, including Jaxon's stuffed monkey and a birthday balloon from his party the previous week. We then took some images inside the entranceway to the castle and just outside it, where Jaxon just loved watching bubbles and his balloon.
Lindsey, Rich, and Jaxon's love for each other is incredibly sweet and genuine, and everyone was full of laughs. Happy first birthday to Jaxon!
