This was my third time photographing this baby girl since she was born a year ago, and while I was editing these images, I found myself getting emotional over how quickly she has grown up (and I’m just the photographer, so I can only imagine how her parents feel!) Her snuggly newborn days feel like just yesterday AND a lifetime ago, all at the same time.
Over the course of the last year, I’ve loved watching her personality blossom into the spunky, spirited little girl she is today. If you need proof, make sure to scroll down to see all of the expressions she made during her cake smash! The girl loves her cake! 😉
Some of my favorite images in here are the ones with her little toothy grin (cheesin’!) and the ones where she’s learning to walk between her parents! They are the best cheerleaders, and you can tell how proud Poppy is whenever she walks back and forth between them!
In a fun coincidence, I found out last week that an image from Poppy’s newborn session was recognized in an international image competition! You can see the winning image on this page. I’m always grateful to amazing families like this one for trusting me with new ideas during their sessions!
