365 days. One year. Warnings about how fast time flies by are passed out like candy during pregnancy and when little ones arrive. Turns out they are right. Last January, I photographed Bra’s maternity session. In those short months.
I have photographed this amazing little girl five times. She has grown and changed so much in that short time and this family has as well. I have loved every single moment of it. Seeing her taking a few tentative steps already reminds me of just how quickly it passes by!
We spent a recent rainy morning in the studio for Lyla’s one-year cake smash. She was more interested in the balloons at first, but soon got into her beautiful pink cake!
She wasn’t crazy about the taste of the cake but really enjoyed painting with the frosting!
The weather cooperated with us the next weekend as the apple trees bloomed. We spend some time exploring the orchard at Willow Pond Farm looking at the blooms, the pond, and the flowers. Lyla is curious about everything- touching, talking and in some cases tasting everything!
Love this one of Lyla and her mom! Bre, you are gorgeous!
This last shot was just before Lyla decided that dandelions must be for eating!
Tyler, Bre, and Lyla, I am honored to have been able to watch and document this past year of your life! Watching you evolve as a family and Lyla grow into such a sweet, bright, independent little girl has been so much fun! I will have your full gallery for you soon!!!
Newborn baby Photograph
They chose to be surprised. For them, it wasn’t about pink or blue, boy or girl. It was about knowing whoever this little person was, he or she was the part of their family who was meant to be. When it was time, the baby arrived, healthy and happy, and a perfect fit for their family. And he happened to be a boy.
Meet Damian at two weeks old
I was so excited when Amy contacted me to photograph their newly expanded family! We had so much fun last summer when we explored the Bates campus together for their family pictures. To meet Damian for the first time and catch this smile was just priceless!
Damian is just perfection with his sweet personality, amazing little lips, and so much hair! He was a champion sleeper as well while I moved him all over the place!
Julian happens to be the awesome big brother ever created. That and he is way too much fun to play with and kick a mean soccer ball!
Amy and Estevan, thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your growing family! I had such a great time, and honestly, you have two simply amazing boys! I will have your full gallery for you to view shortly!
