I had my first little holiday baby last weekend! Little Baby R was so wide awake for much of his session, but as pleasant as can be. He was the most observant baby I have ever seen at his age and he clearly didn't want to miss a thing. I never have new baby's that are this awake and loved all his curious eyes in so many photos.

"How much has changed in the last year since these parents held this baby in their arms for the first time?" This always runs through my mind whenever I am photographing a one year milestone session.

Some are in a phase where they are really tired and some buckets are overflowing with joy from what life is serving up. I love meeting people wherever they are and trying to record them where they are at that moment. Looking back at photos of the good phases can give you hope or looking back at the tougher times can make you thankful it has ...
