That first year of a baby’s life can sometimes seem like it goes by with a blink of an eye! One minute they are just these teeny bundles of swaddled up joy, and before you know it, they are starting to coo, and smile, then toddle and soon enough, they are stomping full force ahead through your home like the little tiny maniacs that can sometimes be. Haha. But it happens so fast! This is why being sure to capture all these moments throughout the first year in photos is so very important! And I’m glad that Amber & Aaron agree. I was so excited to head back over their way in Bradenton to capture some portraits of their family, as Ashton turned 6-months-old. I first met them at the end of last year for his newborn photos, and was excited to see the trio again. We decided to start out at the nearby Heritage Harbor Park enjoy a lake view and some gorgeous pine trees, and then eventually made our way back to their home. I always love getting to grab documentary types of images as a family interacts together in the place that is the center of who they are. Here are a few of my favorites from the session. Enjoy!
