This was such a fun session! Little Sara turned one just before Christmas and I was so excited when her mom asked me to take some photos of her. The best part was that she invited me to their home and just wanted simple, unposed shots of the birthday girl.
It’s so appropriate that I got to do this for them, because three years ago I took some very similar photos of Sara’s big brother Lucas. At the time, I was just starting out and had never done – or even thought about – a lifestyle session. I brought along my black backdrop and draped it over the couch because I thought I had to get shots on a plain background. But in the end, my favourite photos from his session were the ones where he was just playing, looking out the window, being a kid. (Scroll down to see a side by side from both sessions!)
Sara is such a sweetheart. She has been through a lot already in her short life, but she has overcome and is such a trooper. I’ve watched her brother grow up in front of my camera, and I hope that I can do the same for her. It was awesome to be able to capture her personality, her sweet smile and special moments with her mom and brother.
