Hendrix turns 1 | Virginia Beach Family Photographer

One of my favorite things about my job is watching these sweet little nuggets grow up! From Hendrix’s newborn session, to 6 months, and now ONE YEAR!!!! It totally flew by. I have so enjoyed getting to know this family, especially Huntly. She is a FANTASTIC mother and her instincts are so on point. She loves Hendrix so much and really pays attention to his soul. It’s just one of those things you can feel and see as soon as you hang out with her. She is also a next-level awesome step mom to Branson’s girls. All in all- they are lucky to have someone that is so selfless and truly thinks of everyone else first!
We had planned this shoot way ahead of time and I knew it was going to be beautiful! We wanted to celebrate Hendrix turning one but we also wanted to get some family shots. One of the things we were most excited for was the breastfeeding pics! I have always been so annoyed by anyone that isn’t supportive of breastfeeding so I was excited to document these and I loved that Huntly was just as excited.

Side note- can we talk about how gorgeous she is??? Like…. wow! Most people don’t do shoots often (or ever) so I of course, have to interact a lot and give instruction. Every time I opened my mouth to tilt her head or smile more, she just instinctively knew. (Huntly- we totally need to do a fun shoot of just gorgeous YOU!!!)
Now lets get the star of the show! HENDRIX! Oh my gosh. We were setting up the cake and he was doing his best to escape Branson’s arms to GET THAT CAAAAKE!!!!!! haha
After cake we came down to the water and he wanted in ASAP! He is so comfortable in the water, large in part to the cool swimming lessons his parents have had him in for months and months. I am SO fascinated by the videos Huntly posts of him at such a young age in the pool! So neat!

And what other way is there to end a session than to run naked on the beach? Oh…… just Hendrix? Well get on board, y’all! 😉
