Lucas turned one last fall, and we had such a great time together capturing his and his family's memories during this fleeting time! It never gets old to me the fact that I have the ability to create a beautiful time capsule of sorts for families to look back and see how much their babies have grown. To give them the chance to remember their sweet chubby cheeks, the way they fit in their arms, and so many other nuances that fly by so quickly and are gone long before they imagined they could be. Times like this don't last for long, and it brings such joy to be able to provide such a priceless gift of sweet memories to my clients.
I'm ecstatic to finally be able to share Noelle's 9 month/family session from last fall! I know, I know; I'm WAY behind on blogging, but I'm working on catching up!
I've been photographing Noelle and her older brother Ethan since they were first born, including their first year milestone sessions, and they have been the sweetest family to work with. I love being able to turn my baby milestone sessions into family sessions when the weather is so nice! Check 'em out :)
This session is so incredibly special to me, because this is the day that Ethan finally let loose with the biggest laughs and smiles I've ever seen from him. He has always been a pretty shy, and generally not smiley for photos little boy, which is totally ok! While I try my best, I don't push little kids for smiles if they don't feel up to it, and I generally love serious expressions from kids anyway (I want to capture their true selves!). But this day Ethan opened up, and I could have cried from joy to see him so happy and carefree in front of my camera.
