Grant’s one year baby milestone photos took place at the studio this summer. When it’s hot out, I’m always so thankful to have a cool, comfortable space for families! We took plenty of photos with mom and dad, and of course individual portraits to celebrate this exciting milestone. As always, we took a laid-back, natural approach and let Grant lead the session. He laughed, snuggled, and played with a few toys as well! (If you can bring in a couple of neutral toy options, it’s a great way to get natural photos and give your little one a break!)
I loved their color palette for wardrobe – shades of blue, whites, and brown button accents were perfect. I also loved how we paired a soft floral print for mom with textured dusty blue overalls for Grant. Dad kept it simple with navy pants and a white shirt to tie in with everyone else. The result? They look fantastic, and your eye naturally focuses on how sweet they all look together as a family! There are so many adorable emotions and expressions at this stage, you don’t want to miss any of them.
We wrapped up the portrait session with a simple cake smash. Grant’s mom, Melissa, made the cake which turned out beautifully!! I love how simple and sweet it looked. He was a little nervous to try it, but once he did he had a blast! See more of my favorite moments below.
