I’ve photographed this amazing family for years now and was over the moon with excitement for them when I found out they were expecting this sweet little girl last Winter. I met Miss E at her newborn session last year when she was only a week old and have been lucky enough to photograph her every 4 months since then. It has been a joy to see her grow and change so I couldn’t wait to celebrate her first birthday with her and her parents this February.

To capture Miss E at one, mom had a look in mind for her photos that I was excited to see come together with just the right clothing, backdrop, and poses to make it happen. 

For their backdrop, I used my classic grey but with the intention of transforming it after their session through editing to give their photos a much different feel. The soft pink mom found for their outfits was perfect for against the textured, warmed up grey.

Miss E had grown so much since her last session at 8 months old but her exuberance and wide eyed smile was the same. She gave me lots of smiles to capture during her birthday session but I also loved photographing a variety of other expressions on her little face. She has such an expressive personality already! 

We included in the session some really special photos of Miss E with her mom and dad that I know she will always treasure. As another mother of three children, I know that time with a child one on one is really important. I love that Miss E will have beautiful photos celebrating her time with her parents in addition to all of the great family shots that they have from their first year together as a family of 5.
