I love photographing babies! Having had two myself, I can attest to how quickly they grow and change during the first year. It seems as soon as they begin walking, they suddenly lose that "baby" look and start looking like toddlers. It's amazing the changes that take place in just 12 short months! Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful little guy, Colin, and his family. Colin was around 9 months old when his parents brought him over for his portrait session and he was such a happy little guy! Since he was old enough to sit upright, we were able to take him out into the garden and get a variety of images of him in different little nooks. We used some vintage chairs, old wagon, and my flagstone pathway and just let him be himself. This is one of my favorite images of him from our set.
