Heather and Lee have been one of those couples that I wish all my clients would be – repeat ones. The ones I get to be present for each new season of life with. I had the joy of taking their engagement session then the honor to be their wedding photographer. But it didn’t stop there. When Heather knew she was pregnant, she emailed me and requested I be the one to do their Maternity Session, Newborn Session of little E and his Milestone Sessions throughout his first year. I couldn’t be more excited!
We joked that we were anniversary twins with having our weddings in November and then now our sons share the same birth month as well – how crazy is that?!? It was so much fun touching base every few months to see how much E had learned and what new thing he was doing. With both of us being first time Momma’s it was also a relief to have some one walking through very similar things. Sharing this season of life has been so rewarding and a blessing for me as a photographer and new Momma.
Enjoy these highlights from E’s Milestone Sessions this past year!
2 Month Session | In-Home Lifestyle Session
Remember how I said we gave birth the same month. Yea, we weren’t able to do a normal newborn session but we were able to sneak in a 2-month session in their home which is one of my favorites. It was so relaxed, E did amazing and we just enjoyed snapping every little detail of his life at that moment.
6 Month Session | King & Queen Building, Atlanta
This session we did at the same place we did their engagement session (and where they happen to work as well) which made it that much more fun. It was a beautiful morning and even though it was summer, not too hot either. We made sure to do blues to make his little blue eyes pop. Love that little grin he flashes!
9 Month Session | McDaniel Farm Park, Duluth, GA
Trying to decide where to do his 9 Month Session, we knew we wanted outside and I love all that McDaniel Farm Park has to offer so we ended up meeting there for some really sweet creek shots which turned out to be my favorite milestone ones.
1 Year Session | Cake Smash || Capturing Bliss Studio, Lawrenceville, GA
I love a good cake smash session and E did not disappoint! He devoured his cake and it was the greatest thing to record! Heather said she wanted something classic and simple so we did everything possible to keep it bright and white for this one. We ran outside in freezing temperatures to snap a few family shots and I still love them. Heather was very smart when making the cake to color it blue inside so he would be interested in it and it was brilliant!
Lee is a huge golfing enthusiast, so much so that’s where we did their engagement pictures which happened to be where he proposed to Heather. In order to go full circle, we had to get a few shots with E and his golf set and balls which turned out super cute.
We had taken E’s picture in this sweet rocking chair for most of his milestones so we didn’t want to leave it out of this one.
