8 Years Old

i might always refer to my children as my babies. And when i talk about the weight i need to lose, i sometimes say, “Well, i did just have a baby.” Don’t let me fool you. The last time i gave birth was 8 years ago. So, i use the term “babies” loosely. And that post-pregnancy weight loss… well, let’s just say i’m holding onto that excuse until he’s 40. 😉

My oldest son isn’t a fan of having his photo taken. This one likes to dress up and will pose for me- which is fun. But he also acts silly, just at the moment i think i have the coolest shot. i thought i would mix business with pleasure this morning and TREAT him to one of his fave local treats at the Jackson Coffee Company. After he enjoyed his mint hot cocoa and glazed honey bun, he was all for having his photo taken. (Please note, my son dressed himself.)

The Jax Coffee Co. has a great vibe. i have used it as a backdrop for other shoots and really appreciate it, especially in cold winter months. Just goes to show, the blustery winter weather doesn’t have to interfere when photos simply must get done!
