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
Last weekend I was privileged to spend the afternoon with this sweet family and their newest addition Avery. The love for their boys and each other radiated from this family- families like this make my job a joy! Avery's parents were both completely smitten with their new little man, and balanced their care for him with their love and play for their older boy seamlessly. Avery was testing the waters with wakefulness at 11 days new, but ultimately we got the little guy to sleep =) Welcome to the world little man <3
