Another one of my adorable newborns from 2011 turned one year old recently and celebrating with her family was the perfect way to come back from my maternity leave. We originally had our session planned for last Monday, but with our area experiencing some serious thunderstorms, it was dark as night in the studio and we decided to reschedule. The H family made it in on Friday instead and we had a fabulous session together. This family holds a special place in my heart. They traveled from London for both their maternity and newborn sessions last year and they took part in a very special project we started back then and are finally about to share with you! You can learn more about that project and see a sneak peek here: A Birth Story Preview (warning: get the tissues). For A’s first birthday session, mom and dad loved soft girly colors and some of our previous floral back drops. I was in the mood to create something new so we surprised them with these giant handmade flowers! A was full of smiles from start to finish. Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad!
