Charles and I admitted to being uneasy around babies. For that reason, we don’t accept many children’s sessions. Those few we hold are typically for our “lifetime” clients. We shoot their weddings and then stay with them, documenting their family as it continues to expand.
Nora has been one of our exceptions. We met her as a newborn, capturing her just a few days old. We revisited her family now just after her first birthday. Just as adorable as she was last year, Nora now showed us her developing personality.
She is certainly a resilient baby. She was a bit fussy when we arrived but as soon as she was outside in the cool Autumn air, she was ready to go.
Maybe a little to fast for her wobbly legs, she tumbled into the dirt and bumped her head but got right back up for more after a quick cuddle with mom.
Back inside, she showed us how to play with her favorite board games.
Nora seems to love the fall season she was born in because she was ready to go back out again.
We’re happy to see Nora growing bigger and and more brave. We were told that since her session, she doesn’t want any help walking.
Don’t run away too fast, Nora. Let your parents enjoy holding your hand and steadying your tiny steps.
