LEON • 9 MONTHS OLD

Somehow, Leon is already nine months old…

…I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: where does the time go?!


There are some people who seem to carry sunshine in their pockets (cue Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling”). It’s as if no matter the situation, you can find a smile on their face, and feel joy radiating in their presence.

Leon’s mama, Mariah, is one of those people—and from what I know about Leon so far, I think he’ll be cut from the same exact cloth. Every time we’ve worked together, I’ve left feeling uplifted. I have so much respect and love for these two, and I’m already looking forward to seeing them again.

At Leon’s nine month documentary session this past Sunday, he, Mariah, Cam and I had such a fun time!!!

I’d say that a good 83% of our session involved excessive giggling (I know that’s a random percentage, but it honestly has to be close), and me “oohing” and “ahhing” at all of Leon’s little expressions!

He may not be talking yet, but let me tell you—take one look in his sweet eyes, and you’ll know what he’s thinking!


Below, you’ll find all of my favorites from our time together!!!

Mariah and Leon,

I absolutely can’t wait to see the two of you again for Leon’s one year documentary session!!! As he continues to grow into a toddler, our sessions will only become more adventurous and entertaining…and while that makes me emotional (as I’m sure it does for you, too), I’m ready for it! I’m especially thankful for our growing friendship, and having the honor of documenting your family’s growth. You all are awesome.


Until next time,

Skyler
