As a Hoover AL Family Photographer 1st birthday sessions are some of my favorite.
Mom chose a beautiful gown for baby girl grandma bought for her. The white looked perfect in the beautiful green grass with the luminous morning sunlight peeking through the trees in the background. We really couldn’t have asked for a better morning other than it being a little cooler. It’s hard to get away from that heat in the summer in Alabama even when you come out for a sunrise photo session.
I love it when dads get dressed up alongside mom. Long pants in neutral colors help dress up the session and focus your attention upward. Shorts and short sleeve shirts tend to draw our attention away from the face. Jackets are a nice way to add layers and are flattering for most men. Men’s Wearhouse always has a great selection of photo appropriate clothing for dad’s.
As a Hoover AL Family Photographer I love to capture little ones being themselves and exploring their surroundings. It won’t be long before they’re not as interested and all too aware of what I’m there to do.
The mother / child photographs are almost always my favorite images at a session. Children really come alive when they’re given the chance to snuggle and have fun with a parent individually. I love to capture everything from snuggles to tickles and anything that makes your bond unique.
