I liked Holly before I even met her. In her Facebook profile picture she has her son’s tiny baby feet squishing her face and I thought, this woman has a fabulous sense of humor. And she does. Turns out she is a photographer and Photoshop guru as well, the talented owner of Spitting Images.
She was about to move to San Diego (boo) and wanted pictures of her little man enjoying some fine Hawaii beaches. We waited a bit until Thayer was sitting up – well, most of the time anyway – and set a date for a photo session at a stunning beach on the North Shore that Holly had a special attachment to.
I’m not going to lie. I’ve never taken photos for another photographer before and I was a bit freaked out. But baby Thayer, wonderfully awesome, coolest baby that he is, quickly made me forget all that. He has the biggest eyes, the coolest mohawk, and some of the greatest expressions I have ever seen. Plus, his commando crawl is not to be missed. We splashed in the water, ate a bit of sand – a good time was had by all.
