Addie is 1! | First Year Photographer

Every now and again I step way outside my comfort zone and do something special for a special client.  I’ve been photographing little miss Addie since she was born- literally, moments after she was born.  We’ve done birth photos, well- her momma had an emergency c-section and I wasn’t allowed in the room, but we did as close to birth photos as we could, then newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and now the big ONE-TWO.  For these babies, and maybe parents too, I’m probably just someone who pops in every couple months for an hour or two.  I may even be a little bit of a chore 😉  I mean, let’s face it, baby sessions are hard work!  For me, I spend countless hours before and after sessions, cleaning, thinking about set ups, and then making sure these babies look just as sweet and soft-skinned in their photos as they do in person.  I feel a certain bond with them.  So, when Addie’s mom told me she really wanted studio images for Addie’s 12 month session, but also desperately wanted pictures of her birthday party, I couldn’t help but offer both.  It’s not something I would normally do.  Believe it or not, I’m a bit shy.  Birthday parties are not my thing.  But sometimes, just sometimes, that’s ok 🙂
