It was another glorious morning in Santa Barbara, but for one local family it was a very special day. This bright little girl was celebrating the first of many birthdays to come and her parents were marveling at how quickly the year had gone by.
Capturing baby’s first major milestone is one of my favorite assignments. At this age, baby is on the go, inquisitive about the camera and very amused by all the silly things I do behind the lens to get them giggling and laughing. (And even if I can’t manage to crack a smile, there’s nothing quite as adorable as a little one’s sweet serious face).
This little gal was a ray of sunshine - such a happy baby and just too cute playing with the blocks I had brought for the shoot. Her parents were thrilled with the photos and so grateful to have these beautiful images to mark such a special family time.
