Maximus | Golden State Warriors birthday session

This big guy (my oldest) turned 9 in April. I try to always do an updated photo session with both of my kids near their birthday to document each year. I don't always make it happen, and part of that is due to lack of inspiration. Well, we had lots of inspiration this year, so Hadley got 2 sessions (pink Magnolia tree & yellow lemons shoot), and Maximus gets 2, including this Golden State Warriors one. We’re doing another session for him sometime in the next couple weeks.

Max’s favorite sport is definitely basketball (though he likes baseball too and recently had his first go at pitching!). Like many boys his age, he loves Steph Curry from the Golden State Warriors, and so he’s been adding to his royal blue and yellow collection. He got the shoes last winter for basketball season, got the ball for his birthday, and I picked up the shirt at a resale shop last fall. It is hard to find Warriors stuff in the midwest, so I jumped on that one when I found it in his size! We also just ordered his backpack for next fall, which of course is GSW themed.

This little boy is smart, a good friend, a playmate to his sister, and has a gentle heart, that’s sometimes easily broken. He makes us proud when we watch him at school, on the court or field, or with his friends. We hope that he’ll always be kind, and continue to take care of his little sister for life.
