One year sessions are so much fun for me, especially if I have been photographing the baby since birth. Or before birth in his case, since we had a Maternity session too! So much changes in the first year but then there are little nuances that have been their all along. Underlying traits that it seems babies are born with. So often a baby that was inquisitive and awake at their newborn session, is the same way at their 6 month, 9 month or 12 month session. Then again, sometimes they change completely! It probably depends on the day since I only see them for an hour or two at a time! This guy though… always just as sweet and happy has he could be. Always. I just love this little guy.
If you are looking for an Asheville Baby Photographer for 1 year pictures, please send me a message! I would absolutely love to photograph your baby! Twelve month sessions can take place at the studio or your own home. Whichever you prefer!
Tip: If you struggle with one year sessions because the babies have a touch of ‘stranger danger’, keep mom close! Just have her sit right outside of the frame. This is usually enough to set the baby’s mind at ease and allow him or her to relax a bit. Of course, sometimes they want to be held the whole time. Try to incorporate it into the session! See if baby can stand holding mom’s fingers, then compose the image to only include the baby and mom’s legs. The baby will still be the focus with a little added connection, which never hurts!
