Dylan's family was gifted a photo session for the holidays, and they chose to use it to celebrate Dylan's first birthday! This sweet girl turned one the week before her family's photo session. Right around that time, she also learned to walk, and she had no qualms about using our photo time as walking practice! Usually when it comes to photographing one-year-olds, I sit babies down with a favorite toy and encourage them to smile and laugh for the camera -- but not Dylan. This girl had plans of her own! Within minutes of the session starting, she was off and running and it was all I could do to keep up!
Photographing her was quite the challenge, but I loved it! What I loved even more was her insatiable curiosity. This girl was was into everything, and there wasn't anything that didn't fascinate her! Given her age, this was surprising to me, but it also gave me an opportunity to capture her true personality.
As Dylan grows, I sincerely hope she continues to stay curious about the world. I have a feeling her tenacity and eagerness to learn will take her far!
