This week I had the blessing of hanging out with a good friend and photo client. Our working relationship started the same year I decided to give photography my undivided attention by going full time. It was a matter of minutes it seemed that we went from working on her corporate jobs to photographing her wedding to photographing her first born. When I walked in her home I witnessed a heart warming scene. Emily and her husband, Rob, had blow up, framed, and hung a photo display featuring at least 85% of Ty Bellitti Photography taken photographs. The feeling was overwhelming. I felt so honored to see my work hanging in their home. The shear volume of photos provided a gallery feel.
Although, I had very little time to sit and admire the photo display I had to text her later on that day to thank them.
Three months ago Emily and Rob welcomed a new member to the family, hence my visit. My job that day was to take photographs that will be added to the family photo display. So, there was very little room for error. Below is a photo of beautiful baby Sawyer. She was a pleasure to work with. No fuss. No mess. Just smiles in between naps.
Sawyer and I will hanging out a few times throughout the first year of her life. She doesn't know it but her parents purchased a "My First Year" photo package. So, Sawyer, get used to the camera flash sweetheart because I'm privileged to document your development over the next 12 months. See you soon, cutie!

Look at this little guys face. Isn't he adorable? They say we're no match for puppy dog eyes. Personally, I believe that. It's the equivalent of looking your son or daughter in the eyes when they're being extremely sincere. This little guy will grow up soon enough tipping the scale at 160+ pounds. Like children, dogs grow so quickly. One of the wonderful things about photography that we all treasure is the ability to freeze time. Going back and reminiscing on what used to be is therapeutic. Remembering when is an old past time that will never fade. Whether it's your puppy, child, family members, etc., be sure capture them in your mind and also through the lens.
When was the last time you got down on the ground with your pup? For Christina, who's a world-class dog trainer, this never happens. It's clear from Hawks reaction that he needs to get used to the idea. This was a perfect opportunity for him to express his silly side with his leader front and center. Hawk is definitely the class clown. #funtimes
