James is One!! | Massachusetts Family Photographer

by | Jul 29, 2016 | children, family, latest sessions | 0 comments

It was hot and sunny the day I went to photograph this sweet family of three.  I was there to document their baby boy turning one, and as I arrived I could see remnants from his birthday party the day before adorning the back deck.

The last time I was at this house, I was greeted at the door by two bleary eyed parents.  James was just eight days old. He was an adorable little bundle but he was keeping his Mom & Dad up all hours of the night.  For every parent, but especially first time parents, those early days are so hard and such a blur.

That’s why I love coming back after the first year has passed. I love to see how much the baby has grown, of course, but even more, I love seeing the difference in Mom & Dad. After twelve months of a life with a baby, parents always come out calmer and more confident in their roles.  They are usually sleeping through the night, too, which is reason enough to celebrate!!

I think after you survive the first year you can officially be called ‘seasoned parents’ 🙂
