Cherishing that First Year with Toddler Portraits
One-year portraits for returning clients are the best. It always amazes me to see a baby that I knew turn into a boy! The face is always the same, which just baffles me in and of itself, but now there’s a personality to complement what was once just a gas induced smile.
Responding, laughing and crying at real things, turning pages in a book, eating food that doesn’t look like gruel, and do we have to mention those tentative first few steps? These are all milestones that should be cherished. If you are fortunate enough save some moments on camera or video, what a great legacy they will be for you and them.
As a parent of two boys, this to me is the time when the connection to our children flourishes. It’s when we can interact, help them grow into their self, make them laugh, fix their hurts, teach them to drive a peg with that tiny hammer thing...
Back to this amazing, unchanging face from birth, take a second look at these newborn images and tell me that he doesn’t look the same. :)
