It’s hard to believe how fast kids change, especially during their first year of life! That’s the biggest reason I love taking pictures of babies several times during their first year – to capture all of those great milestones like pushing up on their bellies, sitting, standing and walking and to see their personalities emerge. Ivan’s personality became apparent to me during his 4 month session where he earned the nickname “Mr. Serious”… and even now at a year old it still fits.
Ivan was very cooperative with me for his newborn baby session – he didn’t mind being placed in props at all and slept like a champ!
Ivan was very serious for his 4 month photo session but we still coaxed out some big smiles! Here he is in the same basket we used for his newborn photos!
For Ivan’s 8 month session we decided to do photos outdoors at a local farm – Mr. Serious was definitely a fitting nickname!
Ivan’s first birthday session was no exception – still serious!
Ivan was all about eating cake but wanted nothing to do with his cake smash! He kept crying and pushing the cake away but would devour every piece given to him!
He did finally get a little bit into it and even had a good time!
Then he decided he was done with the cake and he sat with his back to it… the tongue sticking out was just PERFECT!
It has been so great watching Mr. Serious… er… Ivan grow during his first year! I can’t wait for the years to come!

It has been such an amazing honor to photograph Colton over the course of his first year! I photographed his parents’ wedding many years ago and had been anxiously waiting for them to have a little one of their own. We kicked off Colton’s modeling career back in late fall of 2012, before he had even taken his first breath, with a rustic outdoor maternity session on a farm in Fairfield County CT after some fresh snow.
Colt was not quite so cooperative once he was here and gave me a bit of a hard time for his newborn photography session but his cuteness sure makes up for that!
“You can’t make me sleep. Nope. Not gonna happen.”
“Okay, maybe just a little…”
A few months later I got to see Colton (and his mom and dad – funny how parents are left out once baby arrives!) once again for his 4 month photos- he was not in the best mood but my goodness is that boy adorable!
When Colton came for his 9 month portraits I couldn’t believe how much he had grown – his personality was definitely starting to develop!
Most recently, I got to see Colt and his parents for his one year first birthday portraits and cake smash – oh my goodness what fun! Colt loved the balloons but didn’t want too much to do with showing off his standing skills.
Happy Birthday, Colton!!! It has been SUCH an honor capturing your first year of life – I can’t wait for the years to come!
