One Year of Jackson - Cake Smash {Baltimore Maryland Baby Photographer}

As the saying goes when raising children, the days may be long but the years are short. Sleepless night and 2 am feedings give way to baby smiles, coos and laughs, sitting, crawling, first teeth and first steps. So many moments, so many milestones. And in the blink of an eye, just one trip around the sun, your tiny bundle with 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes is a bouncing, babbling, laughing, toddling 1 year old. 

Jackson came to celebrate this huge milestone with me in the studio complete with the cutest little cake made by his mom. Jackson is one of my first Milestone Club kiddos so his cake smash was a little bittersweet because now I won't get to see his big blue eyes every 3 months. (Luckily for me we already have a date for some fun fall photos - couldn't let him go that easy).

I first met Jackson when he was just a tiny peanut. Even then his mom knew she didn't want to miss a moment of his first year. Every 3 months I'd see his cute little face and every 3 months he was doing something new. Watching him grow has been such a joy for me!

Without further ado....the birthday boy!

Isn't he just the cutest?!? Now for some of my favorites from his past sessions. It really shows off how much he's grown! Can you picture these as a fun collage or gallery wall?

10 months - A great age for sitting with confidence, pulling to standing position

Austin ~ 8 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

I met Austin's family at my fall mini sessions when he was just a tiny belly baby. These guys are fun, laid back and just super easy to talk to so I couldn't wait to meet their newest addition. Austin preferred to be awake for most of his session, but that's ok because he has the most gorgeous eyes! And once he decided to take a short nap, he totally rocked the sleepy poses. 

Big Sister M, the spunky little thing she is, took some convincing to play along with little brother's shoot. Mom told me ahead of time that she was a bit unsure of her new house guest. Luckily I always have a few tricks up my sleeve. ;) She's so bright and playful, it was easy to turn it in to a big game. 

I can't wait to see this sweet family grow!

Ember ~ 8 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Some of you may not know this but before I was head #momboss at Jessica Fenfert Photography, I was a labor and delivery nurse. Actually, I'm still a labor and delivery nurse because well, I love newborns, I love birth and I love seeing families made. It's why I love photographing newborns so much. And I think it also makes me a more confident and safe newborn photographer. 

At any rate, my nursing job has afforded me the pleasure of making some wonderful friends over the years, even as we've moved on to other things. Ember's mama is one of those friends. She is the type of person that just exudes light. She is always happy, always kind and always goofy. She is someone you just know is going to be an amazing parent. So when she entrusted me to capture some of her first moments as a parent, of course I was instantly...YES!

Mom and Dad decided to remain Team Green until Baby Ember arrived. Only then did they find out she was a perfect, healthy baby GIRL! When they arrived at the studio the morning of our session all I saw was her thick, dark, curly hair. A bitty bundle of gorgeousness! Ember was a dream baby for her session and I am so honored to be able to give them memories to last a lifetime.

Faith is ONE ~ Cake Smash {Baltimore Maryland Baby Photographer}

What a difference a year makes! It's seems so crazy that the last time I saw Faith she was just tiny little nugget. She arrived over 6 weeks early and was just over 6lbs at the time of our session when she was 3.5 weeks old. Now look at her, chubby thighs and rolls for days! The whole family, including big sis joined and cheered her on while she dug in to her cake.

Liam ~ 12 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Liam came to me by way of my mom. His momma is a coworker and friend of my mother's so I was super excited to meet them! Liam had the most beautiful, sweet face and the loveliest parents ever. I was even able to convince Dad to show off his tattoos (really, it wasn't hard - he was game for anything).

Ritchie ~ 8 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Ritchie's momma is actually my cousin (by marriage but does it really matter??). I haven't seen her in years, probably decades, but when I heard she was expecting her first and now lived only 30 minutes from me I knew I had to get her in the studio when her little man arrived. When I found out my aunt, who lives a couple states away, was coming to the session as well, I knew it would be awesome. Ritchie was utter perfection, sweet round face, big, beautiful, bright eyes. We were able to capture the perfect mix of sleepy poses and awake shots And it was great being able to laugh and chat and catch up with family.

Ava ~ 20 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Sweet Ava brought her whole family to her session including the most amazing big sister. While I will always love creating beautiful images that capture all the perfect newness of you little one, some of my most favorites images are those of snuggling siblings. This big sister knocked her portion of the shoot out of the park and was such a joy to be around.

Cole ~ 10 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

October was a month of (almost) all boys. And they were definitely some of the cutest! Cole was the smiliest (if that is even a word!) little man. I am pretty sure we got a smile in just about every set up. It doesn't matter how many newborns I photographer, I still get all giddy when they start flashing the grins. They're so fresh and new that I wonder, what must you be dreaming about??

Hayes {Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Just a few months after his cousin Trey's session, I met little Hayes. Their mamas are sisters and like Trey, Hayes also has two older sisters to look after him. Holidays are going to be so much fun in this family!

Hayes was such a dream during his session. And big sisters, Piper and Lainey, were just the sweetest! They even greeted me at the door with drawings for me. 

Happy Birthday Clarabelle! {First Birthday Session - Maryland Family Photography}

I love one year sessions, it's such a fun age! I hung out with Clarabelle’s family at their beautiful home and we ended our session with some cake! This lucky lady’s parents were clearly head over heels for her and it was so obvious why.  Clarabelle was quiet and sweet, giving me soft smiles and opening up at just the right moments.  She just draws you right in. <3
