William is Nine Months Old

Today in honor of William’s 9 month birthday, I did something I have rarely done, attempted a month shoot on the actual day he attained that many months. Matt warned me that he thought William wasn’t in the mood for it, yet I went ahead to try to take some pictures.

At one point the baby was crying and would not stop and I remember thinking how cool it would be if they found their way over the nursery. To my delight, when I went to pick up William, it turns out they had indeed found the nursery.
