Turning ONE is such a wonderful and special milestone to celebrate! Babies change SO much in their first year and being able to document this time is worth everything. I had the honor of taking one year photos for baby Lilia, and I met her mom, Bree, at a Triangle Area Parenting Support event last year. Her mom dressed Lilia in the most ADORABLE outfit that said, “Sweet One,” which was donut-themed (who else love puns?!). One of the most memorable moments from the shoot was capturing Lilia’s determination to walk. Even though she was still wobbly and would fall down a number of times, she would get right back up and would try again. She showed SO much resilience and determination, but she also expressed so much JOY! One of my favorite photos is of her walking by herself and grinning ear to ear, which you can find below!
I also loved documenting mother-daughter photos of Bree and Lilia. Getting in the photos with your children is something I believe every parent should try and do at least once a year. Your children grow up SO fast and these moments slip by so quickly. To document your love and connection is something you’ll never regret doing.
Happy birthday to baby Lilia, and I hope y’all enjoy some of my favorite photos below!
