This lil’ guy made the cutest pumpkin ever! Mom and Dad had the idea, back in the Fall, to incorporate a pumpkin into their maternity session which, I in turn, wanted to also include in their newborn session with their new lil’ man. This was a dream session! There were so many things Mom, Dad, and I wanted to accomplish during the newborn session and I say we accomplished 99% of them.
The photo above is very special to this lil’ guy’s Daddy. He wanted to include a photo with his boots (on the right) and Momma’s boots (on the left). Daddy’s boots were made by M.L. Leddy’s in San Angelo, Texas. Now growing up in West Texas in the San Angelo area, I am very familiar with the name M.L. Leddy’s, but I was not aware of the special details behind the company. As I was told, M.L. Leddy’s custom measures and hand makes boot especially to fit you, and they’ve been doing this for generations. The Daddy told me that his own Dad and Grandfather all have custom made boots as well, and that all their boot measurements are stored on handwritten cards in the back office. How cool, right? I think I know of another young man who will have his own pair someday.
And lastly, I couldn’t resist snapping off a quick shot of this…..
We were about to sit on the bed and do some family photos of all three of them and this sweet boy started to get a little fussy. He just wasn’t settling in and calming down, so Daddy decided to give him a quick cuddle. It wasn’t until afterwards, I realized… “um, hello?!?” I was in the mirror reflection.
