Anytime I have a shoot with a newly-turned one-year-old, I offer both a “Happy Birthday” to the little honoree as well as a heartfelt “Congratulations” to the parents for making it through the first year. It’s an amazing time of growth, development, intense love, and adoration paired with sleep-deprivation, a new found depth of patience and a reemergence of various renditions of, “The Wheels on the Bus,” on repeat.
Happy 1st birthday, Baby A!
Love the crinkle-nose – sure sign of an honest smile.
She wasn’t quite sure what to think about her fuzzy birthday hat.
Sparkly princess shoes!
So much love spanning three generations.
Thank you Erika, Steve, and Paula for allowing me to document the accomplishment that is the first year milestone. Kudos all around! To view the complete gallery, click here (password required; please contact either the family or me if interested).
