His first haircut | Personal | San Diego Kids Photographer | Alicia Q. Photography

. It's been a long time since I posted last, and even longer since I posted something personal.  I photograph my son nearly every day but don't get around to showing the images to anyone.  It's a little sad to think there are thousands of pictures of my son just sitting on hard drives.  It's my mid-year goal to share personal photos a little more often :)

As most of my readers know, my husband returned from an 8-month deployment in May.  My son and I are were thrilled to get him back, but as military spouses know, there is definitely an adjustment period to work through.  It's hard being in charge 24/7 and then having to all of a sudden share that role.  While my husband was gone, I didn't make an effort to get my son's hair cut, but within a matter of days, my husband had decided it was time.  Of course I wasn't ready.  I knew that once those pretty golden locks were snipped, my baby would no longer look like a baby and we'd be entering a whole new phase of childhood.  Just thinking about it now makes me so sad!  It's hard to imagine my little boy will be 4 in October.

Despite my tears, I managed to document Atticus' first haircut.  Thank you to the kind ladies at Sharkey's Cuts for Kids in Oceanside for a great experience.

p.s. My husband said he instantly regretted the decision to cut our boy's hair.  We're now in the process of letting it grow out again :)
