Sunshine on a Cold and Wet Day
On the morning of the Lanier First Birthday Session, the warmer days of Spring were nowhere to be found. The blue skies and warm sunshine were replaced by heavy clouds and cold winds, but this did not change the joy over this sweet boy’s first year. We found the perfect spot tucked away among trees, and everyone pushed any cold ad dreary feelings out of mind. It wasn’t very hard to find a feeling of sunshine once we saw a smile from the sweet birthday boy. His big eyes and precious bow tie made for a winning combination and precious pictures.
We talk about how time flies, but you don’t realize how much change happens in a year until you see a child’s growth in their first year. In these short 12 months, a child grows from a newborn baby to a walking and talking toddler. Their growth is not only in height and weight, but it is also within their mind and spirit. We begin to see their unique personalities unfold and imagine who they will become. This brief period of life contains countless changes for both parent and child, and if you blink you could miss them. Don’t lose sight of the miracle of this first year, and soak up every second of it.
