baby Z {10 months old} | Belvidere, IL family photographer

This little fella has the biggest brown eyes, and is just too cute. I spent half his session calling him by his older brother's name, poor guy, he was probably so confused by this silly lady with a camera. We ventured out to the barn behind my house and found a little tire laying around (my son likes to do tire flips with it like he's a toddler Crossfitter). It was just the right size for this 10 month old, and since he's almost walking, a bit of assistance was all he needed to stand. We kept the outdoor photos short and sweet (the March winds can get pretty cold and gusty out by the fields), and headed inside to my home studio for the rest of his pictures.   

I've been making some baby leggings recently, and baby Z sported a blue stripped pair (which kind of look like hammer pants), and a brown pair with knee patches. It's so fun sewing outfits for babies because they look cute in them no matter what. He was a good sport about his wardrobe changes. We finished up with him just in his diaper - love the squishy tummies - and I think he was ready to call it a wrap. You're going to be walking and running around in no time, little man!
