Baby Henry Turns One!

I first met Henry when he was only a few days old, at his home in Redwood City. He was the perfect baby and slept through his mini session completely. Henry’s family loved the images from Henry’s newborn session, and contacted me again to do a mini studio session to celebrate Henry turning one!

The studio is located in Potrero Hill, San Francisco. Minutes before the session, Henry’s parents called me worried that he hadn’t taken a nap. He was also suffering a bit from his one-year vaccinations. We decided to give the mini studio session a “green light”, and Henry nailed it! He also had the most adorable gingham outfit!

Look at his adorable little teeth peeking out of that smile, too. It always warms my heart to capture the grins of some of my youngest clients.

The clean white studio backdrop is one of my favorites and most used for mini sessions with little ones. It’s classic and timeless.

We ended the session with a couple images including mom and dad. I always suggest parents jump in a frame or two if possible.

I have photographed a lot of one-year sessions and adore them. A year old is such a wonderful age and stage worth celebrating! (Babies all-too-quickly turn into toddlers, as we know!)

Mom said, “LOVE these! Emily, you are amazingly talented. Thank you so much!”
