When my friend Arriel contacted me about doing a six month photo session for her son, Billy, I was beyond excited. First of all, LOOK. AT. THIS. KID. I'm sorry but I seriously couldn't even handle his chunky cheeks and arm rolls. And don't even get me started about that smile...you have your hands full Arriel + Bill!

Ok, but in all seriousness, there's just something about this age that is so adorable. Maybe it's because these little babes are juuuuuuuuust about sitting up without toppling over. Or the fact that their personalities start really shining through. The last time I saw baby Billy he was just about a month old and in the months that have passed, so much has changed (which I know his mama can attest to).

To Arriel + Bill, thank you for having me be a part of this shoot. But mostly, thank you for falling in love at St. Joe's and bringing this baby hawk into the world. While I miss our late nights dancing at the top floor of Finn McCool's (and who even knows how many other bars in the city), I think it's safe to say this new phase of life is pretty awesome.

Happy 1/2 birthday, Billy!
