Look Who's Talking

Two and a half years ago, wedding clients Kristina and Jim bought a Baby Steps gift certificate for their expectant friends, Tanya and Matt. That first year of Sydney photos was so much fun, and I couldn't have asked for a more adorable -- and easy -- model. She willingly obliged when we propped her in various positions as a one month old, braved the harsh winter winds gusting off the ocean as a six month old, and happily explored the beach (and tasted some, too) as a one year old. It was a real treat to capture those huge first year changes, and I was sad to see the sessions come to an end.

Not too long ago, Tanya contacted me and asked if I would extend the Baby Steps package to Sydney's second year. I was delighted to do it and looked forward to seeing what changes had taken place in the year since I'd last photographed her. When I saw Sydney I could barely believe my eyes. She had doubled in size, her hair had gotten darker, and she was talking and walking (and running and dancing). It amazes me how much children grow and develop in such a short amount of time, and I can't help but marvel at it and wonder what my boy will be like at that age.

Picking just a couple of images to share here was nearly impossible. The online gallery will be available on Pictage shortly. Please contact Tanya and Matt for the access code.
