Family’s First Year Photos: Highlights from Maternity, Newborn, 6 Month and 1 Year Photo Sessions
We photographed Tracy and Dan’s wedding in July of 2011 and was so excited to hear they were expecting their first baby two years later. It is always an honor to photograph new families, especially when we’ve had the opportunity to see how their relationship started – from engagement session to wedding day.
Maternity Pictures | Beautiful Outdoor Session
Tracy and Dan’s maternity session last summer was shot at the lovely Washington Oaks gardens and beach in Palm Coast. Tracy looked fantastic in the jewel purple and the rich greens were a beautiful backdrop for their maternity pictures.
I love these belly bump photos on the beach. Tracy and Dan decided not to find out if their baby was a boy or a girl, so they incorporated both a pink and a blue ribbon. Though they did not know the gender of the baby, they had picked out the baby’s name, Jayden, and made adorable alphabet blocks in the color scheme of the nursery.
Newborn Baby Pictures | Favorite Studios Photo Session
Drum roll… it’s a GIRL! Welcome baby Jayden. She was absolutely perfect and had a gorgeous head of hair for her newborn photo session.
Their wedding rings around those cute little baby feet is classic! I also adore the Dr. Seuss props and custom chair with Jayden’s name on it that they brought for the photo shoot. They really add a custom, personalized element to their baby pictures.
6 Month Old Baby Pictures | Mandarin Park Outdoor Location Shoot
Wow, babies grow up so fast! By winter, Jayden was six months old and starting to sit up all on her own. We had a grand time exploring a nearby park for her 6-month photo session.
This adorable baby girl just loved watching the bubbles float by and playing with her mommy and daddy.
Tracy and Dan are loving parenthood! We live for capturing these precious, growing-up moments for their family to cherish and look back on years from now.
1 Year Old Baby Photos | Studio Session
I can hardly believe a year has passed! We recently brought Jayden back to the studio for her one year photo session. Check out their tradition of taking a photo with a photo in a frame, that all started on their wedding day.
All dressed up and ready for fun. During her 1-year photo shoot, she liked rocking in our rocking chair, playing with her balloons and messing around with the tulle and her pretty beaded necklace. The jumbo flower hair piece is so adorable. She is going to be running around driving all the boys crazy before we know it.
Karen recently had the joy of photographing three sisters who are all expecting. Elishia, the oldest, used a Favorite Photography gift certificate she had won at a YMCA charity auction. We love being able to help out the Jacksonville community and having the opportunity to create lasting memories for this family.
Karen enjoyed photographing the lovely three sisters and thinks it is wonderful that the cousins will be so close in age. Coming from a big family herself, Karen has one cousin within a week of her birth date and another close cousin born later that same year. Family is such an important part of our lives and we feel so lucky to be able to help capture these special moments.
Don’t you just love the dress colors the sisters chose? They each stand out on their own, and they also create a complimentary balance to each other.
The three sisters were recently featured in a Jacksonville Times Union article, describing their happy coincidence. You can read the whole article by clicking on the photo below.
