I've found myself back in Texas for a few weeks so while I'm here I'll be sneaking in a few photoshoots! Before client sessions started, I photographed my darling niece, Madeline. Last year when she was 6 months we photographed her for her 1/2 birthday, so to get our money's worth of that adorable 1/2 crown by Little Blue Olive we decided to do a 1 1/2 birthday shoot since I'm here in town!
My first photoshoot with Madeline was when she was barely even a week old, so she's literally grown up in front of the camera. As my sister and mom were getting her dressed in her little tutu, Madie watched me as I got my camera out and set her mini pink arm chair out. As soon as she was dressed she ran to the chair and took a seat! She new EXACTLY what was going on; photo time with Aunt C! I started to snap a few shots and as I stopped to look at my camera Madie hopped out of the chair and ran to me; she wanted to see the pictures on the camera. It was precious! It blows my mind how much she can understand already. And even just thinking about how she'll never know a life without digital photography... It's incredible!
Also during this year's "Halfsies" shoot, I was able to start giving her the smallest bit of direction, like being able to tell her to go sit back in her chair. Even though she only listened about half of the time, I knew she understood what I was saying which is such a HUGE step from taking photos of her when she was a baby. When she get's older and starts her professional modeling career, all of this will be old hat for her!!!
Enjoy a small selection of some of my favorites from her 1 1/2 birthday shoot! Looks like this might become a yearly tradition!
