I met this family of three a year ago when they wanted to do some photos for their little girl’s first birthday. Their girl is now two and she’s grown up so much in a year! It was fun to hear all that she has to say and to see how much she loves playing with rocks! Her mom brought out her favorite stuffed monkey near the end of the session, and this is something I would love to see people do more often during their photo sessions with young kids! If they have a special stuffed animal or blanket, it’s so sweet to get some photos of them with their treasured item! Definitely smart to wait till the end to bring it out though if you don’t want it in every single photo! Here are some of my favorite photos from their session!
