Taquari’s Small Steps

Taquari Reyes puts the final stamp on his Small Steps adventure.


Sourcelight's Small Steps Program_Taquari Reyes at 9 monthsTaquari and his mother, Jasmine, were one of the first participants in Sourcelight Photography’s Small Steps Baby Program, a complete package of five photography sessions distributed over a baby’s first year, including mom’s pregnancy.







Sourcelight's pregnancy portraiture_Jasmine ReyesOur goal with the program is to commemorate the entire first year of a baby’s life in images that are deliberately intended for gallery-quality display.  Jasmine and Taquari have been a perfect first client for the program–a beautiful, happy mother and child who’ve both been willing (although Taquari hasn’t had much to say about it) to let us push the envelope w-a-y beyond the usual family album.




The Newborn Session_10 days old!

When Jasmine first saw her online proofs from the newborn session, she wrote to us, “Okay, so I just stopped crying over how beautiful those pictures are!!!  I have never seen anything more perfect.  Thank you so much.  I just can’t wait ’til the next ones we are going to do.”

And frankly, neither could we.  (BTW, he was born with ALL that hair.  And have you ever seen a cuter, more inquisitive face on a newborn?!?)


Four Months

He still wasn’t much interested in posing for the camera until he snagged a peacock feather Mom was trying to tickle him with and proceeded to destroy it.  Okay, he’s a boy…





Nine Months

So, go ahead… try to resist those eyes and that million-dollar smile, we dare you.
