Welcome to the club Matthew, the red head club! Mom and dad were surprised a bit by Matthew’s red hair but there is some in the family so it makes sense. During his last birthday club session he was still pretty bald, but the moment he arrived for his 18 month session we could see the red. Not only had he gotten more hair, Matthew is basically running now, as well as, talking a bit too. He definitely knows all the little boys words, dirt seemed to be his favorite. He was very quick to point out all the sticks and dirt he found in the park. We actually had to take a few photos with sticks in them since that is what he loves right now. During the 18 month session it is really more about letting them show some personality. We played peek a boo, looked for dogs, ran around a bit and even put his feet in the pond. We try to have the children sit for a few photos but really what 18 month old wants to sit down, very few!  He did sit with mom and dad for some amazing family photos. Matthew has a very big smile that sometimes is just wide mouth open when he is super excited. Both mom and dad also have perfect smiles so we see where that comes from. He was really giving all the expressions during his session. Super happy and sweet smiles were shining through most of the time, but we did get a few “looks”. Mostly, that “seriously I just want to go the opposite way of you and the camera look”. We let Matthew show us what was interesting to him in the park. We had plenty of time to capture photos, as well as, take some time to smell the roses – or the big shinny mirrored ball in the park! In just a few short months Matthew will be 2 and we will see him again. He is probably going to be talking so much by then.   #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #birthdayclub #parksession #boyphotos
