I loved seeing this little girl and her family again, especially now that she is turning one! We met along Buffalo Bayou inside the loop, and Gemma was in a great mood, even with the heat. She has such an intentional way about her, and it was fun to see her observe me with my camera, and play with her sweet doll. I loved the story behind this family heirloom, and think it’s wonderful that she has been able to enjoy the same handmade toy that her mom did as a baby. I hope she has a great first birthday!
I really enjoyed spending time photographing this family in the Montrose area on Sunday. Stella’s first birthday is coming up, so we took these photos to document the occasion and capture some of the cutest things about being 12 months old. Just on the cusp of taking off running, this little girl was ready to roam once we got her started… until it hit her that it’s actually pretty hot outside, and after that she was content to be carried with her sippy cup! It’s a fun but exhausting age, and I know her parents are so proud of their beautiful and playful daughter!
Part two (actually part one in chronological order) of last Friday’s session with this fun family is below. We met at Rob Fleming Park in the Woodlands in the afternoon, and I loved taking pictures of these two very active boys! The youngest boy is turning one this month, and the older boy is one happy three year old. We got to see some bluebonnets (which haven’t quite bloomed down south or west yet), and even had some fun playing peek-a-boo in the flowers. Here is a sneak peek of our photos from Friday.
A baby’s first birthday is so exciting — as a parent, it feels like the culmination of so much hard work, and you have so much to be proud of. Family and friends celebrate your child’s milestone, and the day itself can go by in a blur. I’m so glad that these proud parents asked me to photograph baby Joshua’s big cake smash in advance of his birthday this month! I met this happy family at Rob Fleming Park in the Woodlands, and we got a little messy — but not as messy as I’d expected! Happy birthday, Joshua!
