When I first met Jenny she was eight months pregnant with this little cutie. I was photographing her sister’s wedding and Jenny was the maid of honor. So I was thrilled when she contacted me about photographing her now 1-year-old for some family portraits. I love this age! Just like this first photo depicts so well, babies this age are beginning to be adventurous…crawling, taking those very first wobbly steps, and exploring the world around them. Yet…they don’t want mommy to be far away. It’s a push and pull on a mama’s heart as well as we enjoy watching them discover new things, but begin worrying about all the mischief they’ll get into.
Little Miss here was the sweetest thing! It was a beautiful, sunny day and she loved sitting in the grass, playing with leaves, and walking with her mom and dad. These are my kind of sessions. We did some posed, traditional photographs then just let the baby do her thing. I’ve had clients say that sometimes sessions with me are ‘almost like going on a nice walk with family and every now and then the paparazzi asks you to stop and look at the camera.’ There’s a little more direction from me than that (and a lot more going on behind the scenes in my head), but I think you get the point. :)
I just can’t wait to see this family again next year, and especially see Miss V as she grows…I mean, can you believe that adorable hair?! I love it!
