Around a week ago, I shared images from Leila’s first birthday party. It was a fantastic event!
The day after her party, I met her family in Forest Park for their official 12 month family session. We explored a part of Forest Park I had not yet used, and I’m so glad we did! The leaves were beautiful, and there was a lot of environmental variety in this particular spot. I am excited to use it again sometime.
Leila was so adorable in her dress. It was absolutely perfect for her. And her mama’s outfit – again, perfection! She has chosen just the right clothing items in all of her sessions. In fact, I often get asked about the dress she wore in her maternity session.
Speaking of maternity sessions – it’s so hard to believe that Leila is already a year old, when it seems just yesterday she was growing inside her mama. I remember getting the email that Leila had arrived a couple weeks early, and having to miss her Fresh 48 session since my own little guy had just been born. Thank goodness I always work with backup photographers for these types of sessions! I was able to do her newborn session, and Quentin came along with me for that. She was so gracious about my bringing him, considering he was so new himself. And then when I got into a minor accident on the way to her home, she even offered to send her husband to come help if I needed it – that’s just the type of clients they are. So thoughtful and considerate!
Then came Leila’s 6 month session, and I remember having a hard time believing 6 months had passed. And now it’s been a full year! Leila is such a beautiful girl, and she’s full of personality. She kept me smiling during her session! And now it’s time to share some of that!
