Are you ready for some major cuteness? We’ve got some coming your way.
First let’s back up. One year ago a dear friend called to ask us to capture Miss Lillie’s newborn photo’s in her home in Newtown, Connecticut. We couldn’t have been more excited. At just 7 days old Lillie was already a rock star. Here’s a glimpse of the beautiful Miss Lillie one year ago on her vintage newborn session. Such a joy to capture images of this perfect newborn baby!
Fast forward one year. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Get ready for Lillie’s vintage-inspired 1-year-old session complete with sweet smiles, perfect posing and a few first-time facial expressions that she saved just for her photo shoot. For this session, Lillie brought along her Meme and Mom to our Western Massachusetts studio. During the entire session I kept wishing that we had a video of all of our reactions to the many adorable faces of Lillie! She kept us all laughing hysterically!
We just knew that mom would have very sweet outfits picked out for Lillie to wear but I have to say that my heart melted when she put this dress on her, complete with Polly Flinders style smocking, puffed sleeves and a back tied bow. And then she finished with the prettiest of hair bows!
Seriously, don’t these remind you of those gorgeous vintage valentines postcards? Every one of these photo’s make my heart sing! Look at her holding that tea-cup like a southern bell!
This surprise look was a surprise to Mom and Meme too. They said they had never seen it before. We’re so glad Miss Lillie decided to show it off during her one year old photo session!
We have found that our 1 year olds either love their cake, or hate their cake. Lillie was a little on the fence about the sugary sweetness. She was very dainty at first but shortly after we placed the beautiful cake in front of her, she grabbed a fistful frosting and then quickly tossed it aside. I think the feeling of the frosting was a bit of a shock too! But all in all the smash was a success (judged by the amount of frosting that she had between her toes!).
So did Lillie enjoy her photo session? You be the judge!……
