Another cutie pie at the end of his Baby’s First Year package! I can’t believe this big boy is already one. We had three wonderful photoshoots this year, and I was so honored to be able to come document this handsome little dude on a gorgeous hot June day about a week ago. We got to play in the yard! Water table amazingness! And what’s better than playing with a hose? Pretty much nothing, when you’re one. Happy birthday, sweet boy!
I loved getting to see these girls three times this year! What a treat to get involved with a Baby’s First Year package with these two adorably fun sisters. I can’t believe the year flew by so quickly.
Look who’s one!
Wonderful to see you guys!
I am going to tease you with these first few photos because you’re not really going to believe how adorable this little girl is when I show you her face. So I’m starting with her 13 month old arms. Because wrist rolls? Knuckle dimples? People, we got it all here.
GA! Told you!!
I just adore this exchange of expressions with Mama:
And now, because you haven’t gotten enough adorableness – it’s tub time.
And some snuggles with Grandma, of course.
Just adored every minute of this shoot, guys. Thanks so much for having me.
So I’m not supposed to blog this many pictures. I always feel like I need to apologize when I include this many photos in a blog post because I’m supposed to choose just a handful to show to you, but these guys were just killing me and I had to show you all these.
Guess who just turned one!?! And guess which boys LOVE to play together? I’m going to let the photos do the talking, but COME. ON. NOW. The cuteness will blow your mind.
LOVED seeing you guys as always. I think you should start doing my new Annual Plan, since your second Baby’s First Year package is now complete (SOB!).
So I hope to catch you in the fall for a Minishoot in the Public Garden!
I have too many photos for you again, I’m sorry to say! I got to attend a truly gorgeous dol jahbi a week or so ago for two fantastic little ladies, and I’m having such a hard time editing the photos down into a nice small gallery to show you. So I guess I’ll just show you TONS. A dol jahbi is a Korean first birthday celebration, and this was only the second one I’ve ever photographed! They did it at Shelburne Farm in Stow, so the cake was a gorgeous pile of cider donuts, and the guests got to pick apples in addition to all the party fun.
I’m going to let the photos of the amazing decor and great times speak for themselves from here on out. So much fun to be had!
All the cousins! It was wonderful to share in your celebration, thank you so much for having me.
You know, the thing is, if you’re 15 months old, and you have a tutu, there’s really no reason not to wear it. These ladies were on the same page about it. And I did what I always do with one year old twins – I took too many pictures and adore all of them way too much. The expressions on these girls’ faces were just fantastic, moment to moment.
Thank you for having me visit three times this year! I love Baby’s First Year packages, because I really get to know these little ones as they grow. It sure doesn’t feel like it’s been a year, that’s for sure. Happy Birthday (a little late) girlies!
One year ago today I had the most amazing experience of my life: I got to be in the room with my baby sister and her fabulous husband while she pushed a person into the world. And what a person. Words are not really my thing – I never feel like I’m telling a story right, like I’m doing it justice. (Pictures, as you might guess, are more my thing.) Suffice it to say the addition of this person into my life, my kids’ lives, our family’s life – it’s been the best thing I could ever imagine. Welcome to ONE, little sweet girl.
She’s off and running.
Oh, but wait, the eyelashes?? Check ’em out. Insanity.
Hunkered down with Arkansan Daddy in the homeland:
Pondering the Pacific.
xoxox and many MOOOOORRRRE!
I adored getting to see this guy for his third Baby’s First Year photoshoot last week. Can’t believe he’s one. His mamas have just the best time with him, and boy, does he have walking skeels. Also an undying love of avocados. Words don’t do this amazing little person justice. Gonna have to let the pictures tell the story here.
Oh, and Whose Toes Are Those?
Some families like to have me come back a few times in their baby’s first year, and some families I see just once while their baby is small. Some families like to have me come back year after year to document their families as they grow, and some families wait to call me back until they have a new addition. I’m happy whenever I hear from anyone, of course, but it’s super fun for me to go back and see families I’ve seen before – I love to see how children have grown.
So I was excited when these guys called for a photoshoot with their big boy, T (who’s now SIX, and whom I hadn’t seen since he was 2 months old back in September of 2007), and their little boy, A (who’s just turned one). What fun brothers! Thanks so much for having me, guys, I adored seeing you.
Ruh-roh. Sorry. I hate it when this happens.
I overshot these two gorgeous girls a few weeks ago, just a couple of days shy of their first birthday. I kid (a little), because I guess no parent thinks there’s any such thing as too many photos of their children, but I do think it makes it really hard on the parents when there are too many photos to consider. I tried, I swear I tried, but I couldn’t cut the gallery down below 93 final images. Crazy! I usually deliver families 50-75 finished (what I’d consider “frame-worthy”) images at the end of a shoot, and that can even be overwhelming, I know. And then when a family asks me to make them a blog post, I like to pick my favorite ten or so pictures for the blog and Facebook. But now, here I was looking at these photos and I had the same problem I know parents have – I couldn’t cut my own list of favorites down.
So here goes, my favorite 18 photos from the first year photoshoot with these two incredible little ladies…
P.S. I know exactly what happened, by the way, in case anyone is curious. I was allowed to keep shooting! These guys got fussy towards the end of the shoot and needed a snack, so they got in their high chairs (adorable – so many chances for pictures) and then finished up, after that, with standing by a big beautiful window smooshing Cheerios into their mouths. Of course I had to keep taking pictures – those wrists? Those fat ankles? I mean, come on. You can’t blame me…
Four year old C told me his one year old brother R was his “best bud”. And he really meant it. I don’t have much more to say about these guys, because that pretty much sums it up.
By this point in the day it was 10:30am and the sun was continuing to feel fantastic, the little guys were showing off their skills… and these 20 minute photoshoots were flying.
This guy just turned 1! I can’t believe how quickly the year flew by – and I loved punctuating the birthday week with a photoshoot. Look at those walking skills :) I think one of my very faves is the daddy rolling onto his back and playing with G down on the ground – it was so spontaneous and sweet. That and the 2nd walking picture towards the end of the shoot, when G is walking so happily towards mama and daddy’s looking on proudly in the background.
It was such a treat to see you guys with a camera in my hand – thanks for meeting me!
Wow, that year went quickly! This sweet boy did my Baby’s First Year package, so I’m lucky enough to have seen him a bunch of times this year. Now I still can’t believe those dimples, and how much fun he has being a big one year old boy. The ones with his mama might be my favorites, though :)
These two are just brilliant – do you believe they know how to spell MERRY XMAS? I mean, really? The complexity, understanding that “X” – Mas is a shortened version of Christmas? Makes sense, I mean they only had that small chalkboard to work with… you can see why they’d write it that way… but I just have to admit it’s impressive ;)
Look at this big one year old girl!! Cake smash :)
