1 year sessions | Chicago Baby Photographer

Say hello to this handsome baby! Luke just turned one. I have been meeting with his family for the last year and I can't believe how sweet they are. One thing I absolutely love is getting to know my clients well enough to call them friends. Throughout this whole last year, I have only met with this family 3 times but I just think they are the sweetest and am happy to have them in my lives.

Check out how much his hair changed throughout the year!!!! Crazy right!? So sweet though. One year sessions, or "Let them be little" collections as I like to call them, are newborn, 6 month, and 1 year sessions. These sessions show off the wonder that is how babies grow, and so fast at that! Little details like hair, can change so quickly and look so differently within months. Luke has changed so much this past year, it was a beautiful thing to witness.

Not that this parallels, or perhaps does...but I saw the new Beauty and the Beast last night. I not only balled my eyes out, but got to thinking that what was so similar in the story line, had a lot of visual differences in the new movie vs. the old cartoon version. The beauty of the story and the wonderful songs stayed the same but the appearance was new and fresh. And is the same for 1 year old Luke. He will always be sweet and kind and wonderful..but will continue to grow and change in appearance. Its so important to capture it all throughout this life to look back on. I'm just glad to be apart of it.
