Your baby has turned 1! Hoorah, you survived the first year. I vividly remember when my twins turned 1, I felt like, wow, we survived. We threw a big party, that I am pretty sure was for us and not them. But heck, they were happy and healthy, we were starting to sleep again. All good reasons to celebrate.
Another way many people celebrate this accomplishment is with a milestone shoot.
As I learn from my clients, and grow as a photographer, I have developed a strong preference for lifestyle / documentary style shoots. Shooting in your home, in your kitchen, in the bed you sleep in... Your life, through my lens.
I think about you looking back at the pictures when you're children are grown and as you look at these images, I feel the emotions that will flood back. Pictures taken in your kitchen where you cooked meal after meal, pictures of the kids jumping on that couch you picked when you first purchased your home, that probably had 1 too many baby stains on it, or the whole family snuggled up on your bed, that very bed where maybe it all began.
What better backdrop, than the home that you have created and will remember year after year.
