This little one lives just around the corner and stopped by in between snow days for his one year portraits at the studio. With all the snow the past two weeks, a lot of sessions have had to be rescheduled but the day of this little one’s portraits the roads were great. I am not great with driving in the snow…I was totally one of the people stuck (two weeks after moving to Raleigh) in 2005 during the ice storm where people were stuck in their cars for hours. My husband grew up in Ohio so he is so much better at handling the roads. I’m still counting down the days until warm weather and summer!
So many first year sessions coming up this spring – this mama recommends keeping it relaxed and fun. Be silly and you will get some great smiles. Bring a sibling along for laughs, too! Big sister was definitely a big help – he just smiled and giggled and laughed at her the entire time – precious! Mom said she was nervous about bringing big sister to the shoot but she ended up being a great help! She really made him laugh and giggle.
Thinking of planning a first year session in the studio? According to this Mama, “It was so natural and the lighting was awesome. I love how she just captures life moments and nothing looks posed.” Thank you soooo much, for the kind words and I love capturing these sweet memories for families. Our little ones just grow so quickly, don’t they?! Harrison started walking yesterday (my children love to wait until the last minute to walk) and I’m amazed at how grown up he looks already!
It’s always nice to have helpful hints of where to buy things. This little one’s onesie was from Etsy, the balloon was ordered from Amazon, and the cake was from Harris Teeter.
