S is back.
S’s mom is a very wise woman. She had told me a long time ago that she would want photos when S turned one. First birthdays are a passage many families want to mark with photos. A few weeks later, she called me back. “What am I waiting for? She is so cute right now!” Although birthday photos are still a goal, really why wait? One year old is great, an important milestone, but all of these precious first months are so full of changes and growth, they are worth capturing.
And what a great little one S is. She has completely disarmed her parents who are so obviously in love it makes me smile just to be around all that love. If you look around my website and through this blog you will find that I am interested in capturing not only a wonderful portrait of your family, but also in the connections among you. When I go to a sitting appointment I tell people to “do what they usually do.” Kiss the baby. Throw her in the air. Feed her. Sit as you would on the couch. Does the baby like her room? Your bed? Let’s go there. And, while I can look for hours at a beautiful portrait, often I love the frames that come between the poses. When the someone is consoling the baby or playing with her or giving her a hug.
With S we got both, some beautiful portraits and some touching frames of this family’s connection. You will remember just what it was like to watch your first baby grow when you see these:
