Every mother knows the struggle of not having any more storage space on their camera’s phone because of all the pictures they have taken of their baby. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good problem to have! Every cute little laugh and adorable sleeping pose seem to be the perfect picture. And of course, you have to capture the first time your baby rolls over or takes their very first step. But some events call for more than just another iPhone photography session. No one understood that more than Anakin’s mom.
She has tons of photos that she has taken herself over the past year of Anakin’s life, but she felt like this particular moment in time deserved something special: his first birthday. Anakin’s mom wanted to capture this special moment in his life with professional photographs. When trying to decide on a location for their session, we took a glance at the weather and knew it didn’t plan on cooperating. Since it was crazy cold outside, their family visited me in my nice warm studio instead. She wanted very classic portraits I could create in my Connecticut studio as they were going to be perfect for his professional photography debut. After a quick wardrobe change, we were ready to go!
Anakin was such an angel the whole time! He wore the cutest little flannel button-down and blue sweater, and he was happy to change outfits. He loved playing with the donut stacker but not as much as snacking on milk and cookies! I was so amazed that he gave me so many smiles throughout the whole session. While he was keen to explore the sets during the solo part of the photography session, he wasn’t too excited about posing with his parents. However, we got some great laughs out of him then too. They were such a cute family to photograph!
Photographs of your baby with you as a family will never go out of style and will forever be the most precious decoration you put up in your home. If you would like to learn more about a baby milestone session like this, email me today. I am taking bookings from February – June 2020.
