Kids like Jude are the reason that I LOVE doing birthday milestone sessions! This guy turned 11 this year, and he's so full of life! He's super fast, agile, and athletic, so we worked in a fun way to showcase those interests with tree climbing, jumping, volleyball, sprinting, and his stopwatch. Monument Valley Park's green grass, big trees, and rock walls were the perfect backdrop for these activities.

Jude's also super smart and loves to read, so we had to work in some book pics. And he's a pretty great actor, so we got some clicks with his screenplay book for James and the Giant Peach. Everything from his interests to his super cool hairstyle, his Stranger Things t-shirt and awesome Converse kicks tells the story of awesome Jude at age 11.
