As part of our amazing First Year Plan, we get the honor of seeing the busiest year of a child’s life unfold right in front of the camera. The tiny little smile that was there on the 6th day of a baby’s life always finds a way to show itself again at the year session. The look in the smiling, sitting 9 month old has the same glow to it that I got the chance to shoot at 3 months when they pushed themselves up for the first time. I love the exotic places that this job takes us and the amazing people that we get to meet but my favorite relationships always start with the tiniest handshake ever.
Elizabeth is one that I wish would just slow down. She’s ahead of the game at every turn and is way too good of a kid to be outgrowing her laughing while sitting still stage so quickly. It’s just who she is and I’m glad that I’ll get to be a part of capturing these memories at least one more time!
