I was super excited when M. and S. contacted me to do their son’s one year session! He’s having a vintage toy birthday party and they have spent a lot of time planning the most fabulous little one year shoot; little did they know that I was also planning on doing some family shots as well that they didn’t count on! LOL Gotcha ladies huh?!?!?!

I love one year sessions, the celebration of a child(ren) and parents surviving this first year and all of the laughter and tears it brings and at the end of the year you have this powerful bond between parent and child.  Its really amazing to capture and witness, it makes my heart sing!

S. and M. You both are absolutely incredible mothers, its evident in how amazing C. is. When you are both around him you just radiate love and that is beautiful! Congratulations on making it that first year! May your bonds grow stronger with each passing birthday celebration!

XOX Maria and Robert!

I love Robert’s take on this next one!

I love, Love, LOVE this one! Look at how PROUD and confident he looks with his mama’s! Doesn’t get better than this!

Another one I love, just oooozes love and I love how their bodies form a heart!

This one is going to be a HUGE Canvas in their home! Love it!

How old are you gonna be sweet little C.? Oh Yeah, that’s right ONE and boy is he excited!

With his grandfather’s vintage fire truck! So cute!
