Adorable One Year Old Baby Girl

Hey guys! The studio has been a buzz with some beautiful little ones lately and thank you for your patience as I work through blogging them all. I am slowly getting caught up.  Meanwhile planning new events to bring you and to take advantage of this amazing warmer summer weather that we are finally having! Next up is an adorable one year old baby girl!

Not too long ago this beautiful happy and silly little girl came into the studio with her family and very talented Auntie.  Sydney's 1st Birthday was an amazing session! I was in awe as Sydney's Aunt set up things for her shoot for us. I adore all babies that grace the studio,but let's face it. Not all are happy and comfortable right out of the gate.  You can just sense and get a feeling that they need mom close by, or play strange for a bit.  Having patience and taking those few extra minutes are so important.  If you are a stickler and a planner and things MUST go your way for the shoot. I think you will find rather quickly that things don't work that way lol. So go ahead...veer off your workflow, be spontaneous. Often times you will find the outcome is so rewarding and mom and dad are so grateful for you, your patience and nailing those coveted shots they so want.  Taking those extra minutes to sit down at baby's level and play builds their trust with you.  Not only does it calm baby down and they warm up to you, mom also relaxes too.  Which results in more natural real connections and expressions.

Sydney was one of those babies who was the exact opposite of the above lol!  Seriously...I joked around and said we need to bottle this!  This gorgeous little firecracker kept us laughing, busy and our session seemed to fly!


Here are some sneak peaks from our session together.  Her talented Auntie is Lisa from Aspen Florist!  


Thank you Courtney and Lisa for bringing Sydney into the studio. I adore our images and I know you do too!  Hope to see you again soon.

Much love,

Petra xo
