This particular blog post is all about firsts: My first maternity session, my first baby portrait session, and a baby’s first birthday. You see, Noah was born a year ago, and a month before he joined the world, I shot my first maternity session with his mom and dad, Rama and Ario. A couple of months ago I received a phone call from Rama. When she told me she wanted some portraits of Noah to commemorate his first birthday, I couldn’t believe it had been a year already! I was excited to meet the little baby that was in Rama’s belly and I knew I was in for an interesting session becuse if I know anything about 1 year olds, I know they are rambunctious, willful and get into everything! Noah was certainly no exception.
For fun, here’s a sweet shot of Rama and Ario from the maternity session taken last year:
And here is Noah! He was even more adorable than I expected and for the most part wanted nothing to do with me and my camera. Kids these days! It was definitely an experience chasing after him the entire time, but I think we really captured his personality in these photos.
Noah’s dad is very much into gardening and it’s obvious that Noah is taking after him. He was so interested in all of the plants in the yard. And dirt! This boy loves dirt! And sticks, and leaves and rocks, and anything else that crossed his path. :)
Noah has the best hair. It went from a mohawk, to a stylish mess and then back again. I’m pretty sure that babies with mohawks are my favorite kind of babies.
Ario is a doctor and Noah had some scrubs to match his daddy’s. Sooo adorable!
And of course mom couldn’t be left out of the dress-alike party!
When I first shot Rama’s maternity session, I had no idea I would be photographing her baby a year later. It was such a treat to meet Noah. Rama said she plans to give me a call every year, so I can’t wait to document this handsome little guy as he grows up! Thanks, Ario, Rama and Noah … see you next year!
