I am excited to introduce a really sweet family to you. I recently meet this family in Mellon Park for their daughter's first birthday portraits and their first professional family portraits. While it's no secret that I love photographing children and families, I have to say that Ia huge perk of being a photographer is having the opportunity to meet a new family at a photoshoot and get to know them a little during our time together and through our communication before and after the photo session! You can see highlights from their portrait session as well as read the interview. I hope you enjoy "meeting" this beautiful family as much as I did!
We have one child.
She was 7 pounds 8 ounces and 21 inches at birth.
Now, she's 21 pounds and tall!
We live in Squirrel Hill (but still pretty new to the neighborhood).
Our daughter is sweet, silly, curious.
She has 5, almost 6 teeth.
She walks only if she holds on to a hand or wall for support.
Our child's favorite books are Hop on Pop, I Love Cats, anything that has extra flaps to open or pages she can turn.
Her favorite foods include cheese, bananas, avocados, yogurt and cheerios. She loves to eat.
Things that make music, stacking cups, wooden animal puzzle, the TV remote
She keeps busy chasing her cat Pepper, scooting and climbing on everything, taking walks outside, pointing at everything she is curious about
Blowing raspberries on her belly, making funny faces, her cousins or other big kids
We had a small cookout on our deck with her grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. She at an entire PB&J flavored cupcake and loved it. She got a Fisher Price slide as a present - which she was scared of at first, but now loves!
We brought her picnic basket and other toys from Ikea.
