Ava is One! – Baby’s First Year

One of my favorite Baby’s First Year girls just turned one (but don’t worry, she’s got a sibling on the way so I’ll see her again soon)! Her eight-month session was at home, so I’m thrilled that we got to hang out in the garden for this last session of Ava’s first year.

On the morning of her birthday, Ava came into the studio to visit me for a fun cake smash! Mama went all-out with decorations to make this little session special just for her.

Newborn Baby S – Baby’s First Year

Another one of my Baby’s First Year babies came in the last few weeks! He has been highly anticipated, ever since his mama’s romantic, stormy maternity session. This little man came to me in the studio with a handsome full head of hair and the sweetest disposition — even if he was awake for most of the shoot.

We always allow plenty of time for newborn sessions, specifically for boys like this. He was super alert and awake through most of his session, despite being fed, and white noise and all my best tricks. I am very much looking forward to his later sessions over the year, if this is any indication of his energy level.

He finally fell asleep at the very end, and snoozed through all his photos with mom and dad. He is just this soft, squishy darling and we got so many wonderful family photos.

Savannah’s 8 Month Portraits in the Garden – Baby’s First Year

I love this family — I have known Mama so long and seen her family grow up into these gorgeous little people! Every new session with them is prettier than the last and I am so excited we ended up in a garden for Savannah’s 8 month portraits.

Joey is an amazing big brother! Savannah is very lucky.

Joey is getting to be such a big boy! For a fun comparison, his 9 month portrait session is here.

Maybe this comes from having a big brother, but Savannah is just the sweetest, most easy-going girl. She is always happy to just be where she is at, never demanding, simply content in everything.

Which makes for a very easy photography subject for me. She is just such a doll!
