My love affair with the Nutters began with this fella, Kegan. I met them when his mama was pregnant for him. I have been photographing he and his family for five years now. These people are my family. They are the kind of people that will show up to help you move something heavy or drop everything to help a Hot Tomato in distress. They are the kind of people I want in my life. I look forward to Kegan’s birthday every year because it gives me a moment to pause and celebrate that the Nutters are in my life and part of my tribe. Happy Birthday Kegan and happy anniversary Jonny, Ashlie, Ayden, Garrett and Kegan. I love you more than ya’ll might ever know.
The love affair continued when he was born. I started to get to know this amazing family as I photographed tiny Kegan and watched as he was cuddled, loved, nursed and cared for by his family. Before long, his mama began working as my assistant and the process of the Nutters becoming part of my family began.
This brings us to his fifth birthday. Every year near Kegan’s birthday, we do his annual birthday portraits. We decided to hang out at Quincy park this year.
Kegan brought his scooter so he could do tricks.
Kegan had a ninja turtles party for his birthday, Mommy brought masks for he and Daddy.
Then he and Mommy finished off the day with ice cream cones at City Park. I would say it was a good day.
