The Alexander family is one of my repeat families. I've been their family photographer for the past five years, and each session is just as exciting as the first. In fact, it still feels like it was just yesterday when I took photos of Jalen's first birthday.
In today's session, I have to give credit to the power of props. Good props (in this case we're talking about a football and some birthday cake) do wonders to bring out the play, energy, and personality of a child. Jalen and his parents had a blast, and so did I.
