Easton Is One

Easton Is One!

My little friend Easton is one-year-old already! To celebrate, I met up with him and his mom and dad, Amanda and Nolan, at the Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard in Jordan, Minnesota to capture his one-year-old portraits.

Pretty. Darn. Cute.

It seems like such a short time ago that we photographed Easton as an adorable newborn baby!

Over the past year, I’ve also had the pleasure of creating his three-month-old photos, his six-month-old pictures at Christmas time, as well as his nine-month-old portraits too! Each time has been a total pleasure as Easton is as easy going as a baby boy can be. He’s pretty darn cute too!

Photography at Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard

The decision to use Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard as the portrait location was a sentimental one for Nolan and Amanda. It’s there that we photographed their engagement portraits back in May of 2015. That was an interesting engagement session in that we photographed much of it in the rain. The images turned out pretty darn well too!

It turns out that those awesome engagement images were just the tip of the iceberg. Their wonderful destination wedding photographs at Grand View Lodge the following January turned out amazing too!

Back To 2019

I met up with Easton, Nolan, and Amanda in the main building at the orchard. I walked into the room and right away Easton reached out to me to hold him! Right there, I knew this was going to be a fun session!

We visited for a few minutes and then I went back to the car to get my gear and set up “Lightning McQueen” to give me some much-needed help with lighting on this sunny June evening.

Because of the sunny conditions, I selected locations that were in the shade, using Lightning to fill in the heavy shadows as needed. Easton was awesome (mom and dad were good too) and the images we created out wonderful! The only downer was all of the gnats. They were pretty heavy at times, but we got through it without getting bitten too badly.

There’s A (short) Movie!

As I like to do with many of our weddings and portraits, I’ve created a cute highlight video with some of my favorite images from Easton’s one-year-old portrait session. It will most certainly bring a smile to your face. Thank you for reading our post and have a great one! – M&J
