Connor has just turned six months old now, and we’re finally getting his newborn session blogged! At 15 days new, he was one of the first newborns to come through the new studio this year, and I’m so thrilled with how his images turned out.

On a cold, grey day like today, reliving a beautiful summertime family portrait session is so welcome. I’ve been photographing this sweet toddler since he was just a tiny newborn, and it’s been such a joy to watch him grow!

For his 18-month session, we met at sunset in one of my favorite spots for some summer evening family time. The results were just perfect, maybe one of my favorite family sessions from the year!

Daniel popped in to the studio this morning for his one year milestone session, and oh my word…isn’t he a doll?!

What a year it’s been, photographing this sweet boy every few months. I will miss seeing his smiling face! Maybe his parents should bring him back for some family portraits next year…hint, hint!

Be humble for you are made of earth.
Be noble for you are made of stars.
~ Serbian proverb

My darlings,

We made it through this full year of letters and portraits. A small part of me is glad that it is finished and that I can move on to more projects, new adventures. But another part of me is sad it’s done…this year I gave myself to you, and you to me, through the process of photographing and writing. I’m grateful beyond belief to have these images and words, and I hope you will always treasure them as the gift they are.

To wrap up the year, how about some last few bits to remember as you traverse through this wild and wonderful life…

My daughters:

be grateful.

be givers.

be loving.

be brave.

be explorers.

be kind.

be strong.

be humble.

and always, always, be true.

I love you both so very much.

xoxo,
mommy

Better late than never on this sneak peek of one year old Alexander! He’s a busy guy, on the move and exploring the world around him. He’s also quite the charmer, as you can see by this sweet smile.
