Ruth’s 1 Year Portraits | Birmingham, Alabama Children and Family Photography

Ruth’s 1 year portraits were such a delight to make and to work on while editing. She’s such a joyful child and it’s very hard for me to remember a time during her Baby’s First Year Collection where she was overwhelmed or difficult. She continued this awesome streak with her 1 year portraits…and her parents weren’t too bad either! One thing that did stand in our way was the weather. Summer’s in the south can be unpredictable, especially with the almost constant threat of an afternoon storm every other day. Our first attempt to shoot was promptly rained out before we shot one photo. We finally got a break in the weather and our schedules a few weeks later, but we ended the session running to our cars, drenched in late summer’s rain. Beautiful portraits were made…mission accomplished!

This precious family was one of the highlight clients this past year, and I’m going to formally recommend that they have another baby asap! We need another Baby’s First Year pronto! Join me in wishing Ruth a very happy 1st birthday! Thank you to this family and every family that trusts me to photograph their growing family from the very beginning. Newborn infant to 1 year old toddler can fly by, and I’m proud to be documenting it every step of the way.
