Film Friday: First Year Photos for little Sydney! Megan and Steven have the most beautiful little girl, always ready with a smile. She was a treat to photograph this year and we captured her first year on film! From newborn pictures to her first birthday ‘smash cake’ photos, watching her grow has been a delight!
At one year, she is getting pretty independent and it was nice to see that Megan lets her explore. She loved rocking in this little chair! Have no fear, we were both there to catch her if she went too far. She is also tall enough to look out a window and mom’s pearls are something she loves to play with.
This gorgeous antique couch from Revival Vintage Rentals was the perfect color to match Sydney’s pink dress.
Premier Pastry made a special “smash cake” for Sydney and she was actually pretty good! The frosting was clearly her favorite and the dress was easy to clean. Thanks to Virginia, Megan’s sister in law, for designing this gorgeous chalk board of Sydney’s first year stats!
At Christmas, we were able to capture her at 5 months. Bright eyed and grabbing everything (including the tree!). She was sitting, rolling and pushing herself upright. Her feet and her penguin were her favorite things to grab and playing with daddy always brought a smile to her face.
We photographed Sydney’s newborn photos at their house, which is where I prefer to capture these once-in-a-lifetime memories. With the new mom and dad tired and having a need for diapers and food easily accessible, it is much easier on them. It also allows us to capture that in-the-life style photos that make heirloom portraiture worth it.
All in all, it was a great year! I look forward to meeting and capturing their next child on film as well. This family is one of my all time favorites and it is wonderful clients like these that make me so happy to be a professional photographer!
