One of my favorite things about loyal, repeat clients is that I get to watch their children grow through my lens. I had the pleasure of photographing beautiful Ainsley for the first time when she was barely able to sit up on her own. When Tori got in touch with me about scheduling her one year shoot, I was super excited!
One year photo shoots are among the most difficult, in my opinion, because they are MOBILE! Ainsley was definitely on the move, but we caught up with her :)
This spring has been particularly frustrating because the leaves on trees and flowers are taking their good old time blooming, so we improvised!
Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot...
Candid shots are my favorites!
As if this shoot could have gotten any sweeter, Donnie and Tori took me to their special spot at Oglebay. Donnie proposed to Tori here and carved their initials in the tree.
Now, years later, they have a perfect mixture of the two of them in Ainsley. All because two people fell in love :)
Thank you Donnie, Tori, and Ainsley for being such great clients. I am excited for your new addition to your beautiful family- another Gilbert face to photograph!
Lots of Love,
