I had a great opportunity to take photos for my nephew Mason. He is turning 1 this month and needs photos for his party favors. His mom and dad hired me. I made the best of the situation. The harsh lighting and the heat was a factor, but taking the photos is key . I had fun and learned a lot. Mason was a very well behaved participant. I enjoy taking photos of children after having my own son. He will be able to look back at these photos of his early years of living.
