A few days ago this perfect little girl (who happens to be one of my 6 nieces...yes I'm an only child...that just means I get to choose my own haha) turned one year old! She was born 3 years and 11 years apart from my daughter- down to the minute. I was so honored to be asked to photograph her in her first weeks of life...and I get to do a one year portrait session with her in just a few weeks!
This cutie's mama is a dead ringer for my own mother- and her dad is just this side of identical to my husband...so I was certain she'd come out looking just like my little one- NOPE haha! But she's still a dead ringer for her own mother, with the same adorable squinty smile ^-^ She was so amazing during her session. Working with newborns is unpredictable to say the least, but this little one was very quick to soothe and held her poses easily- so I put this one in the win column!
It has been an incredible year watching her grow- even though I'm states away from her parents I've absorbed every snapchat and facebook post, knowing how fleeting these moments are. So far she has grown into a social, sassy, and confident baby girl- walking well before her year mark! I'll be there for it all little one- I'll be the one behind the camera ;) <3
