Sweet boy!! I can’t believe this baby boy is already a year old! It seems like yesterday I was curling his rolly-poly little self up and placing him on his grandaddy’s guitar. Now he’s sitting up on it all by himself, and before we know it he’ll be playing it too! Gracious these years fly by fast, don’t they? Ben’s theme for his first birthday party is Mickey, and his momma sure did do a great job of incorporating that into his session. Isn’t that the cutest?!? Happy Birthday, Ben! We are so LOVING watching you grow up!
Collin and I are so excited to see Morgan and Wes become husband and wife! And we’re kind of partial to them because they happened to choose a pretty perfect date for their wedding. Yep, we’ll be celebrating our seventeenth (WOW!!) anniversary on their wedding day! It’s a pretty perfect day to get married, guys! Collin did this session for them this past winter, and I just love everything about the way that it turned out. But I have to laugh at them swatting away bugs in the dead of winter. Gotta love good old South Carolina! Morgan and Wes, we’re so excited for y’all! Not much longer now!
Love this sweet, teeny little baby! Miss Savannah brought her brand new sister, Mary Virginia, to the studio to see us a few weeks ago. Their momma walked into the studio saying that she was pretty sure the sibling photos were not going to happen and she was perfectly okay with that. Y’all, Collin and I love that. Because seriously, let’s face it, many times the brand new big sibling is in love with the new member of the family, but more often than not? Um, well, they kind of really don’t like that precious new bundle. Obviously Savannah and Mary Virginia will be the BEST of pals in no time, but to start off with Savannah was quite simply not a fan. But you know what she was a fan of? Puppies. We are not ashamed of bribery here at Collin M. Smith Portrait Photography, and a promise of a visit with our new pup Auggie was just what Savannah needed to cuddle up to her little sister! HA! The sibling photos worked out, and so did the rest of the session! In fact, I am in love with every bit of Mary Virginia’s session. She was so perfectly cuddly and content!
And because it never got blogged last year, I’m also going to include Savannah’s first birthday session at the bottom of this post. Because I love it SOOOOO much!
And last year at Savannah’s session!
Y’all, we met this sweet family through another one of our sweet studio families, and I am so glad we did! We have had he best time getting to know them and photographing Miss MarthaAnn. And we are thrilled that there is now a little dose of BLUE in this family! Smith arrived recently and he is just the cutest little guy! He was such a sweetheart for his newborn session, and super chill through the entire thing. And from what I hear from his momma he’s continued to stay that way! Greg and Jordan, congratulations on your gorgeous children! We are so happy for y’all!
What a cutie Miss Lillian is! She came into this world with a head full of incredible hair. I just love that! Perfect for headbands and bows. =) For being such a tiny little thing she sure did give us some incredible eye contact! Her parents did a great job of incorporating personal props into her session. The “Worth the Wait” onesie is my favorite ever, and I always love incorporating photos of those she was named for into a session! Sweet girl, you were perfect for your session! Can’t wait to see you again soon!
