My little Bird man is three. I don’t know how long he’ll let me do birthday portraits, but so far he’s into it. Lately he’s started asking me to take his picture (while we were on vacation, he asked me to take his picture with a fire hydrant.) He’s sweet, and smart, and he likes hugs as much as I do. For this year’s little milestone session, I decided to just take the camera along on his actual birthday, and document our day.

Wake up: trains.

After the doctor, we went to Cal to kill some time until we could meet John for lunch. I took one billion photos, because he’s adorable and I can’t help myself.
