1st birthday session at cylburn aboretum { tempe az baby photography}

1st Birthday Session at Cylburn Arboretum, Baltimore Maryland.
It is incredibly fun to take newborn photos and meet so many sweet innocent babies. But as much fun as that is, it is also so exciting when those tiny babies return to have their one-year-old pictures taken. Wow, how much they grow and change in such a short period of time. At this age, children are in the process of developing their own personality, and they show such curiosity about the world around them.

The little lady in today’s session was no exception. I first met her when I created the newborn pictures for the family, and today they returned for this new one-year-old milestone. It was a gorgeous day, and we headed to a Cylburn Arboretum in Baltimore to capture a selection of nature shots. There we found a bench surrounded by flowers and trees, which provided the perfect backdrop. The birthday girl wore a delicate white dress and sported a head of beautiful brown hair with dainty ringlets. She stood out like a beautiful angel surrounded by the greens and browns of nature.

Next, we walked along the grass to explore other parts of the park. We had so much fun incorporating bubbles into the pictures. It was great to see how her face lit up with a huge smile while she explored and tried to play with the bubbles. Later, I had mom join in the pictures. We found a beautiful house with stone benches and steps. The joy on the mother’s face was so contagious that you couldn’t help by enjoy the moment. I had fun getting a couple of close up shots of the little lady’s face and beautiful brown eyes, full of wonder and amazement.

I had such a great time working with this family again. Here are some of my favorite photographs from this session. I hope you enjoy!
