Meet today’s Birthday Boy! Zhivan
How quickly the weeks fall together as that first year comes to a close. Reflection on the beauty of what has filled that year and yet also a bit of nostalgia on how far your little one has changed since those sleepy all day cuddle days. The most beautiful transition into family that you can imagine yet you really can’t prepare yourself fully. Falling in love with your little person who captivates your very soul when seeing them for the first time, nothing quite comes close.
Then the days start going a little faster. You find yourself mostly stumbling along through sleepless nights, questioning yourself how you made it through that day or celebrating the victory of the ease when it happens (if it finds lucky you). Its that magic recipe of big heartfelt smiles and joyful laughter that erases all days that may have found to be a little challenging. After all, aren’t we all just learning?
No matter the chaos, there is always time for stillness. Just a breath, a moment to pause. Breath them in. Snuggle a little closer and be present. I love that the experience of a session also provides this magical connection together, creating of memories that are forever captured for you to relive. Such a precious gift for Zhivan today.
This little handsome man, the one who stole the hearts of his mum and dad was such a delight to photograph today. What a beautiful day to celebrate and capture this beautiful morning.
I was so excited to meet this kind, friendly and warm family, the owners of Ariel’s Coffee in Warrawong…Check out their Facebook here and be sure to grab a lovely treat while your in the area. Tell Daniel I sent you! You may even get a little glimpse of this little star helping daddy in the cafe, his smile will no doubt add a little sunshine to your day as it has mine today.
Happiest Birthday Zhivan, I hope that these images of our time together will allow you to share these with family and friends near and far to celebrate this day with you.
