Sturdivant Family | Sunset Session 2019

  • May 27, 2020

When I arrived at the Sturdivant home last fall, Masada reminded me that we were taking photos during the same week last year! We reminisced about little Noah’s adorable smile (and his ability to sit in one place, ha!).

Noah was 18 months at the time we photographed. He’s a man on the move! Instead of fighting it, we decided to document Noah as the toddler he is. While I managed to snag a few lovely smiles with mom & dad, Masada & Mike embraced the season Noah is in and relished the action photographs.

That’s what it’s all about isn’t it? Why stress about a toddler sitting still when the reality and what you’ll remember is his energetic playful spirit?  My goal with sessions is to portray the raw reality of the family at that stage.

Those eyes, though!

Noah was on the move!

For frame of reference, here is the Sturdivant Family in 2018:
