As an Illinois family photographer, I see lots and lots of families each year from all around the Quad Cities and beyond. This family right here holds a very special place in my heart. You see, I met this sweet couple when they were expecting their first child. We did a maternity session, then we did newborn, 6 months and one year photos of their sweet baby girl. I was elated once they messaged me to tell me baby #2 was on the way and they wanted to go through the Grow With Me Collection once again! Repeat clients are the BIGGEST complement ever!
So here we are, and this little guy turned one! It’s so hard to believe how the time goes by so quickly. I enjoyed every second of it as we did maternity, newborn, 6 months, and now one year for this little guy, too! It’s so great to see how much these parents value documenting all the major milestones of their growing family. It’s truly such a pleasure and an honor to do this for them. I have loved getting to know the four of them, and I’m so thankful for the friendship that has blossomed from that first conversation on the phone when they said they were expecting their first little one.
With that being said, please take a look at their gorgeous portraits! Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom to see his one year celebration with Cake Smash pictures as those are sooooo adorable! His expressions are priceless!
