Can someone please tell me where the last year has gone?
This gorgeous little lady came into the studio this weekend, with her equally gorgeous mumma for some first birthday photos. And she totally rocked her photo session!
Connie turned one last week so we wanted to capture the occasion with some photographs. First year photo sessions are always so much fun. One year olds are funny, cheeky, full of character and they know what they want. And Connie definitely knew how to pose in front of the camera …
It is crazy to think that this is the same baby I photographed as a newborn a year ago, almost to the day. She was so tiny back then!
I’ve never used a black background to photograph babies before. I suppose there’s this idea that black is quite a harsh colour. But I love how these photographs came out and I think this really works with her cute little pink tutu and helps her really stand out.
Oh and the photo of Constance at the top with the pink flower bonnet … It’s by far my favourite!
So here we are … if you don’t fancy a messy cake smash photo session for your one year old, you don’t have to have one, but do try and capture this important milestone. They are only this little once. Before you know it, they will be going off to university and you’ll be wondering where the last 18 years have gone and trying to remember what they looked like when they were were still a baby?
So if you too have a baby that’s going to be celebrating their first birthday soon, give me a call, or send me a email and we can have a chat about a capturing some beautiful photographs that you will treasure for many years to come. Click here for my Contact page.
