Baby E's First Birthday Portraits | Charlotte Family Photographer

Photographing children brings me great joy and when I have the opportunity to add in family photos in the mix, there’s not much more I can ask for! It was such a pleasure to capture Baby E’s first birthday photos and the family’s first photos together since she was born.

Baby E’s mom contacted me about a month before her desired session date. It would be early Spring and we were hoping to plan a gorgeous outdoor photo session. As the planned date got closer, though, we realized it would probably rain on the day and decided to move the session indoors to my home studio.

I love being able to offer a backup plan for my clients, and being able to customize their photography sets! Mom selected the set colors, which would match Baby E’s first birthday party decor. I loved adding in a few of my studio props to make the set complete.

When they arrived at my home studio on the day of the photo session, Baby E greeted me with lots of BIG smiles!!! She was the cutest, and I couldn’t wait to photograph her! From her adorable outfit to her beautiful headband, mom and dad made sure that she was picture-perfect—and she was so ready to take her photos!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their session.


I’ll be honest—this family was so wonderful to work with and so easy to photograph. Their gallery was absolutely gorgeous, don’t you think?

If you would like to schedule a session for your children or family, I’d love to discuss with you!
