Celebrating first birthday is a good opportunity to do family photos. Many times people come into my studio and say right away that they don't want to be on the photos, just the baby. I say that I'm ok to photograph just their child, but I tell them that many times it's either mom taking photos of dad and baby or dad taking photos of mom and the baby. It's really rare that the family is all together on one photo! On top of that phone shots will never look the same as studio photos done by a professional. This family let me convince them to do family photos too and I am so happy we got those memories captured!
