Delaney brought her Mom and Dad to my studio to celebrate her first birthday in a fabulous portrait session. Casey and Matt are so in love with this little girl, I just couldn't help but smile throughout the whole session. Typically one year old portrait sessions last about 45 minutes and then baby has had enough and let's us know, and and we call it a wrap. Delaney though brought animation and fun to our entire session time and brought more adorable facial expressions than I've ever seen in a one year old.
Running my portrait business on a high-touch on client care model allows me flexibility in scheduling my clients without anyone else waiting in the wings for their turn. It also allows precious little ones like this to be able to finish their nap and awake happy (even if that means a 20 minute delay of the session start time which I choose for a happy baby.) When deciding whether to have high volume or high care re my clients, all the frustration/horror stories of moms being turned away from portrait sessions because they were 15 minutes late or waiting in waiting rooms for an hour through multiple melt downs made the decision an easy one for me. These are portrait sessions that everyone gets to enjoy!
Typically I forgo shoes in portrait sessions with babies because I want to see those adorable tooties, but when mom brings a sweet pair of Stuart Weitzman's I make an exception! Our passion for fabulous shoes can never start too early! ;)
Here's a little peak at the many adorable faces of Delaney!
Delaney saw herself in this mirror on her way out of the studio...she became sooo interested because she thought it was a friend to play with...sweet little moment!
Happy Birthday sweet girl! I pray you continue to crack everyone up with your priceless expressions and the joy you bring to daily life!
