One Year Old Child Portraits
Phoenix Area Family and Child Photography
Oh the joy of being one! So much is going on?learning to walk, to talk and being oh so curious about the world. Having a one year old is joyous for parents too! Watching them grow and change each day. It can also be a little stressful-believe me I know, I have four of my own and all of them turned one. For a parent, remembering this precious time is so meaningful because they really are only one once, and making sure to take photos- both professional and on your own- is so important. If you are stressed about your little toddler and think there is no way you could take portraits of them, think again! I have some great tips on toddler photography here. I love taking pictures of the youngest of kids because they are so cute and adventurous and give all sorts of expressions when the camera is focusing on them.
The Location: South Mountain
This spot is always a favorite for many of my clients because it encompasses a lot of elements of the natural Phoenix landscape. South Mountain has desert views, cactus and of course mountains! To give the session more variety there is a small spot called Scorpion Gulch right at the base of the mountain. This area showcases some pretty cool, old west, stone buildings.To get more of an idea for what this location has to offer see some of my past session at South Mountain and Scorpion Gulch here and here.
The Session: One Year Portraits and Family
The focus of this session was the super adorable one year old you see all over this post. Lucky for him, his whole family wanted to share in his birthday pictures and hoping in for a few. With my basic package you have the option of including more individuals if you desire. This way you can get a few family shots in too, even if the focus is on your child!
If your little one is turning one…or five… or eighteen, email me today to schedule a custom photo session! Together we can choose a location based on the look you want. I can assist you with wardrobe, accessories and even hair and make up if needed. I can’t wait to hear from you!
