Little Boy Blue

I first met Liam about six months ago, and I was immediately enamored by his startingly blue eyes. I loved them so much that they are featured pretty prominently on my photography site. It wasn't just his eyes though. He had a sweet, jovial attitude and was content just to stare at my camera for minutes at a time.

Well in six months time, this little guy has learned to not only walk, but run. We hung out at Montrose Beach on a sunny summer evening. We explored the sand, played on boats and Liam did his best to rundown some seagulls. He didn't manage to catch any, but I certainly was able to capture him with my lens. And my lens, loves Liam.

The only problem I had with Liam's shoot is that he's at a stage where he sticks his tongue out a lot. I have several shots where his mouth is wide open in a grin and his tongue is hanging out. I called it his Kiss face, because it looks like this:

I would like to thank who ever named this boat and then left it sitting on the beach that day.

There were a few references to Liam's family in this shoot. The first is a wooden tug boat. It was Liam's grandpa's toy originally, and Liam is the third generation to play with it.

The other family item in this shoot was this Dr. Seuss book. It was a gift from Liam's grandma, who sadly passed away not too long before this shoot. I hope some day Liam looks back at this photos and thinks of a grandma who I am sure loved him very much.

Thank you so much Liam and Ellie. I'm already looking forward to our next shoot.
