Mr. Jerrod had a couple rough first days of life and then really showed us at his session that his little lungs were working perfectly fine! He wanted nothing at all to do with sleep and squishy-ness he just wanted to be wide awake looking around! He really made me do my job and we managed to get tons of adorable shots! Obviously, when your model is this handsome! Lori endured all of our teaching classes in college with me and it turns out my Adam and her Justin knew each other before Lori and I even did. Funny how life works out sometimes!
I can't wait to watch this little man grow up!

I wouldn't be able to do this without every single one of you! I can't wait to see what's in store for 2015!
