NYC Newborn Session to First Birthday Session
Another first birthday session I photographed recently had me thinking…I’m not a very sentimental person but I do get emotional at graduations. Graduation, for me, is the end of one chapter and begging of the new one. It is a sign that planted seeds are giving way to fruits. In photography, rather in Picture Perfect NY photography studio, we also celebrate graduations. This blog entrance is about one of those graduates.
This is Lily Rose. In the short year that we’ve spent together, I think it’s fair to say that her name corresponds to her beautiful personality. She’s full of life, happiness, and a contagious smile.
Given that her name is about flowers, we made sure to incorporate them in the session.
A few months later, Lily came back to us for the 3 months session. We captured her personality using – you guessed it – flowers setup
For the second theme, we decided to keep it very classy and just capture Lily. Mug Shots – no, there aren’t law enforcement images, these are specialized images that we capture in the studio where we concentrate on the baby’s facial expressions.
The central theme, for Lily’s first-year portrait session, has been flowers. Therefore during the six-month milestone session, we use the bicycle garden. Lily was perfect on her sitting milestones and we were able to capture those beautiful moments.
Since her 6 months of summertime, we wanted to show that with our beach setup. In reality though, in our studio, we can do all seasons in a matter of few hours.
As we entered the fall season, Lily came back to us for another session. Fall Colors, pumpkins, all speak to fall. When we added a smiley face to the scene, it just made the pictures – perfect!
As mentioned earlier, in our studio, we can do it all for seasons in a matter of hours. This nine-month’s milestone session was no different. We knew that we wouldn’t see Lily Rose and her parents in 2021 anymore, therefore, we set up a winter holiday setup, and our supermodel was more than willing to participate with our plan and allowed us yet again, to capture some beautiful images of her.
We blinked, we turned and a whole year passed by. It feels that just 3 days ago, we were capturing Lily Rose at her newborn session. Now, we are capturing her first birthday cake smash and she graduated the first year’s worth of pictures. Again, we kept in the theme of flowers, concentrated on sitting, standing, and even baby-step-walking milestones.
Last but not least, we finished the session with the cake smash. Lily Rose, smashed her cake like a Champ. She tried it, she ate is, she shared it and we were there to capture it all.
Huge thanks to amazing parents, D and M for choosing us to capture their little girl; for coming to us every three months, and of course for allowing us to be part of their family!
