These babies grow so fast – I can’t believe Madeline is one! It seems like her newborn session was just yesterday! And yes – she still has all that AMAZING hair! She was a true joy at her one year session. I couldn’t believe how well she was walking already! Sweet as can be – I love getting to watch these babies grow. Here’s a peek into our session – thank you, H family! <3
Victoria is one! This Cedar Rapids baby photography session (besides being really cute) shows off quite a few of the options in my client closet! When you book a child session with me, you’re welcome to bring your own outfits in, and you also have full use of my client closet. I have many different pieces for kids of all ages, and I work hard to find custom, unique, and vintage pieces to continually add to my collection.
I’m so excited to share this session with you – thank you, V family! <3
As a NICU photographer with The Tiny Footprints Project, I sometimes have the privilege of keeping up with a few of “my” families. In early 2016, I had a TTFP session for the M family and their baby Eilidh (it’s Gaelic and pronounced Ay-Lee). A year later, I was so excited to be able to capture her one year photos! She has come such a long way in a year, and I couldn’t be happier for her and her family. I’ll leave it for her mom to describe the past year:
“One year ago today I delivered a baby – a sweet baby girl we had been told would die. Though she repeatedly defied expectations in the womb, even the most optimistic of doctors were extremely guarded regarding her ability to survive outside my body. As we drove to the hospital a year ago we didn’t have a car seat in the back seat and we didn’t have a crib waiting for her at home.
And then we got a miracle. A legitimate, stuff-you-only-read-about, God-given miracle. The baby that was supposed to be pulled out blue and unresponsive was born fighting and screaming her little head off.
The last year hasn’t been without struggles, but in the midst of the hard stuff there has been so, so much joy! We’ve had 365 days we were told we would never have and I thank God for every one of those days. I pray that Eilidh’s struggles, and most of all, her ability to smile and triumph over those struggles, continues to bring glory to the God who gave her to us.”
May you have many more birthdays, sweet girl! Here’s a peek into our session – thank you, M family! <3
