I did a maternity shoot with Scott and Shannon when Shannon was pregnant with their first baby. A week or two after Declan arrived, I came to their home for a newborn shoot. We met again in the fall, when crimson, yellow, and plum leaves littered the ground. And a year later, I met the little family at Northgate Park for Declan's 1st birthday pictures.
Instead of a baby, I encountered a little boy with light blonde hair and the biggest brown eyes. Declan has the most beautiful smile, which he happily flashed for the camera whenever his parents made faces at him.
