First birthday! { Marietta photographer }

Oh my gosh, this one year old photo session gives me all the heart eyes! Isn’t one the sweetest age? Their personalities are starting to shine through, they may have said their first word or two, and they are starting to toddle around in the most adorable little way. I first photographed this little cutie for her baptism last summer, again right before the holidays at their Christmas photo session, and now for her first birthday. I love seeing how she’s grown and changed! She is still such an agreeable, easy baby, only now she has perfected her pageant wave. (scroll down) Oh and this lil sweetie completely lights up when music comes on, and she already has some pretty good lil moves.

After one failed weather attempt, we managed to pick a night that felt like a perfect, sunny, spring evening. We met at a park in the East Cobb area of Marietta about an hour before sunset for our session. I love this location for both the beautiful bridge and for the creek that is the clearest, cleanest creek of any I’ve found – my own boys love to play in it during the warmer months. Her uncle and grandma came along too – she travels with a fan club – and I loved the extra hands, the more the merrier! Her little birthday outfit was perfection and she stole the show for the evening. I added one little detail to one of the images – leave me a comment if you can spot it! It’s not too hard to find. 🙂

And this month I’m doing something special with some other photographer friends. We have a blog circle going, and you can click from each of our posts to the next in the circle, literally traveling all around the world to see what other children’s and family photographers are shooting. The link is at the end of my post, check it out and enjoy!
