Happy First Birthday!
Durham Lifestyle Baby Photographer
It still amazes me every time someone emails me about one year portraits. How does time fly by so quickly and little newborns become one year olds? Happy First Birthday to this sweet girl! I first met these two at their maternity portraits over a year ago, and their newborn portraits at their loft – this Mama knows how to decorate. What a beautiful space + awesome location for walking distance to lots of fun stuff. Their baby girl, oh my goodness, was just so happy and full of personality for her one year portraits. She loved being outside and playing with her Mommy + Daddy. She giggled and giggled and was just so happy and then at the end was all of a sudden so tired. I love that we were able to capture her rubbing her eyes. So much cuteness!
According to Mom…
Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one? Justin-He is a sweet nerdy, rule following, best dad!
Natosha-nurse and wild card
Camille-the best babe who is the best cuddlier but also full of attitude
Does your little one have any favorites? She loves tomatoes, cantaloupe, and watermelon. She also loves to dance around the house to almost any music but we listen to toni basil’s Mickey a lot and she loves it. My girl is another of her favorites. Cam has no time for books, she will not sit still for more than 1 minute.
What was your favorite part of the session? My favorite part of the session was how easy it was. I was so worried Camille would cry, not look at the camera, and be generally be misbehaved. But she was great and Becky made it easy for all 3 of us. It was fast and easy!
Tell me about the outfits that you wore to the session. I got my outfit for jcrew online. Jcrew is easy for me? I know exactly what Size I wear there, so I can online shop! Camille’s outfit was the most important and it’s from old navy. I want something the showed off her cute little legs and that she could move in. And justin just threw something on;)
What words of wisdom do you have for other moms preparing for a session? My only advice is to just relax, smile and don’t worry too much about what your little one will do. The pictures will be great no matter.
What has been your favorite gear during baby’s first year? We got a lot of use out of our boppy lounger, ergobaby carrier, advent soothie pacifiers, Aden and anais dream blankets (love), pack n play, and a good stroller.
Do you have any pets? How do they get along with your little one? Any cute stories? We have a Cat named Aster and Camille loves her. She is always trying to chase her down. When she does get to pet her she rubs her head on her and giggles, every time! Aster is great with her too, you would think she would run but she usually sits fairly patiently and lets it happen.
