Carter Turns One | Stafford Virginia Family Photographer

This boy is close to my heart.  After all, he is my nephew!  Carter Kingston Lyon is turning one and it’s time to celebrate!  <3 When Alyssa reached out asking me to capture this sweet moment for them, I was overjoyed!  She decided to go with an Rustic Americana theme for his session (since he was born so close to the 4th of July) and realized quickly that by adding a few sentimental items and heirlooms…Carter’s session would be undeniably special in many ways.

This wooden caterpillar, Chip made in school and the ‘crazy apple’ is an heirloom toy in Alyssa’s family.

Carter is wearing his dad’s sailor hat from his Navy days…how special!

Sweet smiles

Carter enjoyed saying a few words in between photos…sitting on top of Alyssa’s family quilt!

What a sweet boy

Those baby eyes

Look at that face!

Trying to escape

Photoshoots are a bit tiring
