New York Family Photographers | My Baby Boy

New York Family Photographers | My Baby Boy

Hard to believe this guy just turned 5 last month. He finished camp, started Kindergarten and began guitar lessons… His love of music was apparent very early on. We used to dance to music together every night before bed when he was a baby and I can remember him humming along, head on my shoulder, at a very early age.

A few years ago, he heard the music of the Laurie Berkner Band and fell in love. He knows the words to every song, and talked about her using her first name only, like she was one of our friends. When the opportunity to take him to a live show came up we jumped at the chance. He LOVED it. He just sat in awe watching the musicians on stage … At one point he asked to go up to the stage so I carried him over to the front row, where he waved to Laurie and she gave him a wink. 😉

About a week or two later we got an email letting us know that Laurie would be at a play in the city and the kids attending would be able to take part in a meet and greet. Not only did I know that would make ME the coolest parent ever, but I knew Ben would be completely over the moon. So we went. The play, Wanda’s Monster, was AMAZING and when it came time for Ben to meet Laurie he literally ran over to her, jumped into her arms and gave her a big unexpected kiss on the nose ( which I’m sure was because he was going right for the lips and she turned her head)…

Anyway, I asked Laurie about the perfect time to start him on guitar, and she said 5. About a week after his 5th birthday, we signed him up and he is loving it. After yesterday’s lesson I took him out to capture the moment. Let’s just say I’m SO glad I did…

These are beyond breathtaking. I don’t even know how you could choose a favorite. He will treasure these as he gets older, as I’m sure you will also!
