Look who's ONE! Wahoo! Sweet baby Alison is celebrating one whole year on earth and of course we had to do a 12 month milestone session to commemorate it. First birthdays are a BIG deal in my book. Actually, all birthdays are a big deal to me.... Mine's February 17th.... And I love flowers, and dinner out, and free babysitting, and photographer gear, and yarn, and chocolate.... Ok, ok, back to Alison.
While many parents go for the messy (and fun!) Cake Smash, Ali's mom and 'bama' decided it just wasn't the thing of this sweet girl, so we did a Milestone Session instead. This is a great way to document 3, 6, 9, or 12 month milestones and was a perfect session of Alison. She was such a little doll during her Milestone Session by Fawn Lily Photography. She would just sit and smile at her lovely mama and 'bama.' I never even heard the girl cry (despite three outfit changes) until she was getting buckled in the carseat afterwards. And, I'm sure that was because she wanted to stay and do just a few more pictures.
I brought along some Milestone props: a lace tent, a floral "1," a giant 1 balloon and my vintage wagon. Ali's family provided the gorgeous heirloom rocking chair (which I was more than happy to incorporate) and the cute baby.
Happy 1st Birthday sweet girl! I hope you grow with health and strength and learn to see the beauty around you on your wonderful journey through babyhood, and life.
