1 year old baby photo session

1 year old baby photo session, introducing Isabella.

We had fun during her 1 year old baby photo session last week. Such an interesting age to photograph.  Isn’t she gorgeous! I can’t expect all smiles and a happy dance. 1 year olds are unpredictable. They can be laughing, crying, serious and stubborn all within seconds of each other. Trying to settle them in one spot and smile at the camera is not always an option. However, I do strive to capture at least one image where there’s a connection between the child and the viewer.

Isabella was no exception. She loved her freedom therefore it was important that she didn’t feel restricted. Running around may not have been the original plan, however we captured some beautiful peek-a-boo shots and spinning around in circles.

What really finished these images off was her clothing. Her parents did a great job choosing a plain neutral outfit which complimented her natural beauty, giving a light, timeless feel to the final images.

Reading stories and sitting in her toy box are some of Isabella’s favourite activities. These were great ways to keep her in one place, photographing some action shots, telling her story.

To a little one, a room can feel rather small and confined quickly, especially when working with natural light as positioning is important to capture beautifully lit images. Therefore we moved around. We went out to the hall and took advantage of the stairs, having her climb up, leading the way.

She seldom looked directly at the camera, so when she did, I had to be ready for whatever expression she gave me.
