First birthday photo shoot | chicago studio lifestyle photographer

This little darling and her gorgeous mom came to my studio for some first birthday photos recently, and we had so much fun! What a beautiful duo. This little girl was so smiley and happy, so it made the session go by super quick and easy! I loved all the accessories her mom brought to help customize the space. And I'm kinda obsessed with that beige lace tulle skirt her mom brought! Absolutely precious. ❤︎

And I always love adding on a little lifestyle 'mommy and me' moments to the end of my studio sessions for my little clients because let's face it. Moms typically don't get enough face time in FRONT of the camera- we're usually the papparazzi behind the camera (iPhone cameras count!). I'm just as guilty, but that's why I'm 100% guilt free hiring out my colleagues to do our own personal family photographs. There's times where I feel extra ambitious and will get out my tripod, etc., but it's also such a nice convenience and luxury in hiring a professional photog to do all that work for you. :)

Check out some of my favorite highlights from our session together- hope you enjoy!
