It looks like we have a cute little pilot on our hands. This little guy will be turning 2 years old next week. He is going to have an airplane birthday party theme. I am loving seeing the vision his mommy had come to life. We were flying high with this shoot! Here he is… ready for takeoff!

This image was inspired by this post that we came across on facebook right before the session. Rocco’s mommy did an awesome job getting an aviator goggle hat last minute, and Tater made our airplane.

We had some fun with big brother too! Remember HIM? We loved playing with these boys. Here is their airplane storyboard. They were SO sweet to each other!

And now for the real thing… We were off to the Prarie Aviation Museum. We had so much fun taking pictures there. Rocco’s mommy paid our way in and let us go exploring with her little man. The people there were so kind and even gave us an open cockpit experience. We loved watching Rocco go exploring. The museum is having an open cockpit day on Saturday, September 22nd. More information can be found HERE.

Happy 2nd Birthday Rocco! 🙂

    Well Haley and Tater of course you have outdone yourselves again. They are all so fantastic and really did capture so much life in both boys. We love them all! Many memories to share for a lifetime. Thank you kindly.

    The pictures are fantastic! Rocco’s smile couldn’t get any bigger so not only do we get to enjoy the beautiful photos but he enjoyed having them taken. These will surely get more precious every year. Photos like these are a living history of your child’s youth. Great photographer! Great brother photos also.
