hoke and the lovie session | atlanta child photographer

Shortly after I’d held the first of the Lovie Sessions I received the best email from a dear friend…
“These lovie sessions you are posting are just slaying me and now I can think of nothing more urgent that I need to do besides having Hoke photographed with Eva the Otter and his “little green blanket”.  And as weird as it sounds, I want to do it while he still has his baby teeth before he loses his 2 front teeth. (Strange, I know but once the front teeth go and they get real teeth they look like such big kids!)”
And that’s when I knew how special these sessions were.  My sweet friend drove over from Birmingham for this session and while it was so special for me to see her precious little boy love on his most cherished possessions, I know it had to mean the world to her and her husband.

The Story of Hoke and His Lovies.
Hoke has loved his little green blanket from day 1. It swaddled him as an infant and 
as he grew bigger and bigger he'd wiggle out of it but always end up 
holding it through the night.  Eva came into his 
life during his first visit to the Tennessee Aquarium. He was 3. 
He was so impressed with the otters that he picked a stuffed animal 
otter from the gift shop. He had just happened to have watched 
Wall-E and that's how he chose the name Eva.  While he'd had 
plenty of other stuffed animals, Eva was the first one he'd chosen for 
himself and he loved her instantly.  He even started swaddling Eva in his 
little green blanket! He will sometimes bring Eva to 
join him at dinner and will occasionally buckle her in the car beside 
him. As Hoke grows up, he might not take Eva and his blanket everywhere 
he goes, but they are always there to comfort him when 
he needs a good snuggle. And while his stuffed animal collection has
 grown, Eva still is his #1 girl.
