While photographing this little one last Summer, I was privileged to witness the many and ever changing moods of the first birthday!  Paula Spencer, author of Parenting Guide to Your Toddler, described these mood swings in Parenting Magazine as "Jekyl and Hyde like".  Spencer goes on to describe the temperment of a toddler and has some good advice for handling the ups and downs, click here if you would like to read it!

This cutie-pie didn't have such scary mood swings!  Although she was bursting with personality and expression, there was nothing but happiness during our portrait session.  I loved the way she proudly walked the boardwalk at a Fort Collins nature area, eager to show off her newly acquired skills.  As she bounded toward me, I couldn't help but cheer for her as she performed this amazing feat!

As she played near the wild sunflowers, one happy, animated expression after another lit up her precious face!  The action is all at high speed when you are one and she quickly went from playful to sweet to silly and to happy in just minutes.  Following all of this activity is the inevitable slow down as little ones get sleepy - it is a lot of work to be so busy!  (This is why 1 Year Sessions are usually just one hour.)

I actually love the quieter photos as much as I love the happy, silly ones.  A sweet kiss for Mom and softer portraits also show the real side of being one.

There are so many milestones during the first years of life.  The First Haircut is one that came a lot earlier for my granddaughter than for my own children.  My three children were blonde babies and only had fuzz for the first several years of their lives.  Haircuts were not required until at least age three.  But Cadence has a full head of lovely brown tresses so her Mommy made an appointment at Cool Cuts before her second birthday.

Of course, Mimi had to tag along and bring her camera!

Cadence was a perfect angel sitting in the bright red car and watching Elmo on the screen as her hair was snipped, dried and sprinkled with glitter!

Funny thing, after the haircut, Cadence has more curl!  

 

I recommend documenting all the milestones in your life - whether you use a DSLR or your cell phone.  Your story is precious!

Today is April 16 and most of the posts I see on Facebook from friends across the country are about warm sunshine and spring flowers.  But here in Northern Colorado, we have a foot of fresh snow - and it is still snowing!  Luckily for me, this is the morning I spend with my granddaughter Cadence.  As chilly as it is outside, it is warm and cozy inside...especially when you are wearing footie pajamas. Cadence enjoyed announcing the weather by repeating the word "snow" as she gazed out of her bedroom window. Then, she discovered that the window blinds were perfect for playing hide and seek.  For me, it was a perfect April morning.

Pretty little baby Olive is on the Baby Plan making it easy to photograph the major milestones during her first year of life.  Since Olive's Six Month Session - where I get to capture her sitting up all by herself! - fell in the frigid month of February, I planned an indoor session using window light.  So Olive and her Mommy came over and I photographed her in the cozy warmth of my living room.  Olive began her session dressed to kill in a darling jumper handmade by the amazing Candace Shurley (check out her shop at Red Valentine) and sitting on a blanket handmade by Grandma. 

 

Little Olive changed into a Spring sweater and we headed into my studio office where she quickly discovered her toes.  Then she realized that she was on camera and turned on her million dollar smile and even showed off her little tongue.

 

As I clicked away, I was mesmerized by those beautiful baby blue eyes and could have continued shooting all day.  But after awhile, I think Olive got hungry.  So, she decided to nibble on those bright colored buttons...

Clearly, I have the best job ever!  If you or someone you know is expecting, contact me for information on my Baby Plan.  Because you don't want to miss one moment of that precious first year!

Around our house, Cadence does not lack for toys.  But her favorite toy of all is a cardboard box.  These magnificent boxes arrive to our door several times a week - usually filled with photo prints!  Cadence will sit in the box, push the box across the floor, ride in the box while someone else pushes, carry the box, kick the box and fill the box with treasures. Her favorite box is the perfect size.  Once it was emptied of the air conditioner filters it was originally designed to hold, it became a house.  This box even acquired windows.  Eventually, it gained a sun roof.  Yesterday, I took a break, grabbed my camera and took a few pictures of Cadence and her box.  

Lifestyle photography sessions capture your family in an informal, relaxed environment.  Contact me here if you would like information on scheduling a Family Portrait Session.
