Baby Parker: Peek-a-Boo with the Birthday Boy!
When last we met Baby Parker at eight months old, he was a cheerful bundle of smiles and playfulness who kept us giggling from start to finish. We were convinced that this dapper little gentleman would grow up to be quite the entertainer and, when he returned for his final Toronto first year photography session this week, he swiftly proved us right!
Working with Baby Parker is a joy for everyone involved, because that’s exactly what this little one is aiming for. He’s much more interested in putting a smile on all our faces than he is in playing with toys – needless to say, we didn’t have any trouble keeping his attention focused on the camera.
When we sat him on the wooden chair for a portrait shot, he promptly climbed down and hid behind it to play peek-a-boo with us. Chuckles achieved, he climbed back up and did a little dance, while his dad stood by to make sure he didn’t take a tumble. As you can see from his beaming smile in the photographs, Parker couldn’t have been more elated when his antics made us laugh!
When we presented the birthday boy with his special cake, he wasn’t sure at first what to make of it. He crawled around it curiously and was fascinated by the colours, but he couldn’t quite work out what it was for. To get him started, Dad stepped in and smashed the cake right before his eyes . It was only a matter of seconds before Parker dived in too – and not much longer before he was covered in frosting almost from head to toe!
Mom and dad tell me that Parker is quite used to wearing his spaghetti, so getting cake crumbs and icing all over himself was pretty much par for the course. Even so, I think they were relieved to know we have a bathtub on hand for just these eventualities and plenty of wet wipes to clean our little ones up before they clamber back into the car seat!
I knew from the start that working with Baby Parker and his fantastic mom and dad would be a wonderful experience. Just between you and me, I’m as sorry to see their Toronto first year photography sessions come to an end as I am delighted to see this little one begin to fulfill his promise. A very happy birthday to a charming little gentleman – may you always find such pleasure in bringing happiness to others!
