Desmond’s one year photos were definitely the most fun so far. He hadn’t started walking quite yet at the original date we had them scheduled for, which got rained out. It ended up being a blessing in disguise because by the second date, he was a walking maniac. It made the pictures so much more dynamic and gave us a lot more options. We wanted them to be casual and representative of us as a family. We spend a lot of times on weekends venturing out to our favorite city spots. We picked Tremont for these pictures because of the vibrant colors in the neighborhood and Lincoln Park for Des to run around. Lucky’s Café was even super nice enough to let us play in their garden. It ended up being an overcast day again and started raining half way through. We made the best of it by utilizing the awning over the pool restrooms, then we ran over to the Brewnuts shop for a treat and some final snaps. Des was such a trooper through the whole thing and most definitely earned that rainbow sprinkle chocolate donut.
