Little Ms V came to the studio with her mom for her first birthday photos. She warmed up to me so quickly and loved showing me how well she could stand on her own. I love the photos of the tiny curls at the back of her neck and her long eyelashes.

She brought a special tutu in her dad’s favourite colour for her photos and it was the perfect accessory for her birthday session. As I’ve mentioned before, when clients bring in these types of props that have special meaning for them, I’m happy to incorporate them. Imagine looking at these pictures when Ms V is 16 and seeing her bright personality shine through along with this special tutu. The reason for it’s choice will never be forgotten, and this memory has now been captured forever.

This is why photos are so meaningful for me. Not only as a photographer, but as a parent.  Capturing these moments is something special that can’t be duplicated.
