...is a time for joy and wonder.
I was so happy to have a lifestyle family session celebrating a one year birthday right in my hometown. It is hard sometimes to always acknowledge the beauty that is right in front of you and this town of mine has some lovey pockets of nature to explore. We started this session in little Maddie's home where she kept an eye on me the whole time to see what the lady with the big camera was up to. I adore when little ones want to snuggle in momma's arms and will show their curiosity about what's happening around them at the same time. Moments like these allow me to capture such sweet expressions between a child and their parent. After playing for a bit we bundled up to go and chase the late afternoon sun at our local park. This is where Maddie's personality showed! She went from giving daddy the cold shoulder about her previous nap to wanting to exchange magical yellow leaves with him. Their excited expressions and adoration for each other was so sweet to witness. It was a wonderful afternoon for this new family and a perfect way for me to end my fall family sessions.
