Baby A just turned one year old! We started out with a couple of Easter portraits of Baby A and her big sister in front of the beautiful spring flowers. The quilt that we used throughout the day was made by their great grandmother, it was so beautiful! After we took the photos in their matching Easter outfits, it was time to get messy. Baby A’s mom bought her an adorable little cake with pink, yellow, and green flowers on it which happen to match her Easter dress perfectly. She wasted no time at all digging her fingers into the tasty treat and gobbling up the flowers. Once she decided she had had enough, Baby A took her baby wipes and tried to help mom clean up the mess. Then on to the metal bath tub for a post-cake clean up… The doll in the tub was made by her great grandmother also.
Happy Birthday Baby A! I’m so glad I got to spend it with you!
Meet baby M at nearly 7 months old. Her mom brought tons of adorable outfits for us to play dress-up with, some of which she had even made along with Baby M’s grandmother. I swear they should start their own business with the adorable fluffy tutu, Micky Mouse bloomers with matching leg-warmers, and the sweet little zebra striped pillowcase dress that they put together. And I think I have a new favorite photo, I love little M’s sassy little peep from under the edge of her Easter hat in the first photo from this post!
We met up on Sunday at the Duck Pond at Virginia Tech for a sweet, Eastery photo session [originally was going to be a 6-month session, but we had to postpone]. There was a good deal of rain throughout the day, but thankfully we only saw a few sprinkles and the overcast weather made the lighting perfect for mid-day photos. The cherry blossoms were starting to bloom even though spring hadn’t officially “sprung” yet and despite the threat of rain it was nice and warm outside.
It is so hard to believe that it has been nearly 6 months since I took little miss M’s newborn baby photos, but it has. I couldn’t believe how big she had gotten when I dropped by on Sunday to take her Easter portraits! Her mom made her the most adorable little pink, green, blue, and purple tutu and matching headband. She had lots of Easter eggs to play with and a yummy chocolate bunny too. Miss M didn’t want to smile while I had the camera in front of my face, but every time I moved it she cracked a big grin. It was like she thought I was playing peek-a-boo, but didn’t know the rules!
