Eli's First Haircut

We took Eli in for his first haircut a couple of weeks ago, right before his first birthday. (I am so far behind on my blogging - there is so much to go!) His hair was getting really shaggy on the sides and would hang down into his eyes in the front. So we took him to a local kids haircut salon for his first haircut. I decided to take him and not do it myself for a couple of reasons: 1) so he didn't end up with an awful cut right before his party, 2) so I could see how they cut it for next time, and 3) so I could take some photos of his first haircut. The guy was really quick and patient with Eli. Eli was actually pretty good, he just wanted to look around and see what the guy was doing to his hair. I think it turned out nice. He definitely looks older.

When they were done with the haircut, Eli got a balloon. He was having so much fun with it, we decided to let him run around the park and get some energy out before dinner.

After his balloon popped, Eli gathered some sticks. No surprise - he gathers sticks every day after Stroller Strides. He's a funny boy.

I got your comment. Thanks for the compliment. I still have so much to learn. I've been doing photography for about 9 years. That's when my dad handed me a fully manual camera and I started to play with it. I then took a couple of photography classes at a local college and really started to understand it. Up until recently it has just been a hobbie. I'm just starting to turn it into a business and I am having so much fun. I loved your pictures on your blog. You are very talented and I enjoy your style. I love capturing moments, not just having people stand and smile. I'm working really hard to better myself with that concept. If you have any questions about getting yourself set up, fill free to ask. I'm just figuring it all out right now. I will be purchasing a website from www.bludomain.com . Many photographers use them and I am just joining the crew. David Jay is another place to check out. You have way more freedom with the design of your website, but it is way more expensive. Anyhow, I have no idea why I'm sharing that info:) I don't even know if that is what you are interested in. Tell Brian Hi for me. Your little boy is so adorable and I love his little haircut:) You can email me at www.jillrichphotography@gmail.com
