One of the greatest rewards of my job is getting to watch babies grow from just a few days old into walking, talking little charmers. This beauty has grown into such a sweet little girl. And from the beginning of our session to capture her 1 year old baby girl photos, she showed us every single side of her personality. Here she was being coy and curious.
Little Miss loved discovering this Queen Anne’s Lace bloom, and then tearing it to shreds! But who cares. . . she was happy as can be during this moment in her little chair.
When the chair got boring, we brought Mom in on the action. They could have sat like this playing for hours. Momma is completely in love with her baby girl.
When we decided to walk down the path, everything changed for their little lady. All of the sudden it was just too hot and she wanted only to be held. . . by Momma. But Daddy was a trooper and kept trying to dote on his little girl.
Happy once more, I caught the sky reflected in her eyes in this photograph.
Those little details, like eyelashes and toes, often get attention in photographs of newborns. But photographing them again once your little one has grown a bit, makes you appreciate them all over again.
Look at my skills! Not quite walking here (although she is now, I’m told), little Miss was more than happy to show us how she can stand up and cruise around the furniture.
And, we’re sad again! Oh, the emotional roller coasters that toddlers drag us on. I love this image because you can see the powerful love that her Momma has for her as she helps to make everything all better again.
All better! Daddy came to the rescue with a playful game of tossing her up in the air and then catching her. She tried to vacillate back and forth between crying and laughter for the first few tosses, but in the end, laughter won.
A favorite part of every baby session is when we introduce food. Those lucky enough to be turning one year old get cake! Sugar lips here couldn’t get enough of it.
And I was over-the-moon when I captured this moment. Baby girl here has put that same foot up in her family portrait at every session so far, and she didn’t disappoint this time. Such a beautiful family! I’m looking forward to seeing this little one grow for years to come.
