My my how quickly does one year pass.  Especially if you have little ones!  I feel like this little guy’s newborn session was just a few months ago and here I am one year later taking his one year portraits.  His newborn sessions was one of my favorites.  Not only did I just adore every set up because he looked so cozy and adorable, but he was the BEST baby!  So laid back and relaxed.  Usually that is a tell tail sign of how he will be as a baby.  His momma said he has grown up exactly as I predicted.  I have to say, even as a one year old he was so sweet and calm and relaxed.

Kristen brought the cutest outfits for her little man! I was overjoyed when I saw what she had for him.  My favorite was this little knit outfit.  He looked like a little woodland elf perched in this tree.

He was so curious!  I love how fascinated he was with everything around him.  We did get some big ole smiles with the help of mom and dad.

And he was practicing his new skill….walking!! He was so adorably wobbly on his two feet.  I just love when they learn to stand and carefully take those first steps.

In Louisiana, we don’t have foliage that changes vibrant colors this time of year. While I am very jealous of places with an actual “fall” season, we do have the most amazing sunsets.  In October, the sun sets the sky on fire.  It is really a beautiful sight.

The last photo of the evening was probably my favorite.  When he was just a week old we did a set up with this plaid blanket and a bear bonnet.  It is one of my all time favorites.

So naturally this was a must….

His little face here is so sweet.  It’s kinda bittersweet thinking of how much it will change in the upcoming year as he grows into a little boy.  But I know one thing is for sure, he is just going to keep getting sweeter <3

It is such a blessing being able to watch these tiny precious babies grow into little people.  So grateful for my wonderful clients who trust me to capture these milestones.
