Cash is hands down the coolest seven year old that I know. Granted, being his Aunt I realize I may be a wee bit biased. There are a few things that everyone who knows Cash can agree on and it’s that he is a sweet, kind and considerate young man. I have loved being able to watch Cash grow up and to photograph him year after year. It is so nice to look back through all of his images and see how much he has changed. He loves to tease me, acting as if he doesn’t enjoy being photographed, but he always does such a good job with each and every session.
It takes him just a little bit to relax, but once he remembers that there are no rules to my photo sessions the fun can really begin. I know when I hear the words, “Hey Steph watch this” that he is in ‘photo session mode’ and the images to follow are going to be my favorite. The genuine smiles and giggles come out!
Those who know us well can tell you how much Cash ADORES my husband Justan. Uncle Justan can do no wrong in his eyes. When he comes over they will play video games for hours, watch movies, and Justan always sets up a tent in our living room when he spends the night. I may or may not have (I totally did) promised Cash the entire time I was photographing him that Justan would meet us for ice cream when we were done. This always puts a huge smile on his face. I know that anytime I mention Justan’s name I will get that reaction.
My favorite moment of his session was at the very end when we were finishing up. I turned to him and said,
“We are done. You did good Cash, I’m so proud of you. Thank you very much”.
I just assumed his response would be something to do with meeting Justan or where we were going to get ice cream (with Justan), etc. He looked at me and said,
“Thanks Steph. You are the BEST photographer in the world and the best Aunt in the world too!”
Oooooh my goodness. Melt. My. Heart. Seriously, this little guy is so sweet and kindhearted. These moments are why Justan and I love being an Aunt and Uncle! Here are just a few of my favorite images from Cash’s session. Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
