Turning 1 is so much fun! ~ Kailua 1st birthday portraits

Miss M has a birthday coming up soon, so we celebrated in style!

Blue floral backdrop for baby girl portraits in KailuaShe took a bit to warm up and feel comfortable in studio, which is why sessions aren’t rushed- it can be normal for separation anxiety to set in around 9-11 months. We work on baby time and as hard as we try as parents to make sure our babies have eaten and napped so they’re ready, we understand babies do their own thing so breaks as needed are encouraged. It’s hard work being a model!

Natural light portraits on bed with crawling babyMy personal favorite images are nearly always on the bed. There’s a magical light that’s perfect for portraits, and babies seem perfectly at home crawling around on a bed. And they’re so proud when they pull to stand at the end!
