Grant’s Turns One | Monticello Park Spring Mini Session

2013-05-13_005 copy

Grant’s first birthday is coming up later this month! He will finally turn ONE year old! I was so excited to be given the opportunity to photograph sweet Grant again to celebrate Day 365 of his life. Monticello Park was the perfect location for this photo shoot, and on a sunny, warm Sunday afternoon in late April, we did just that. In lieu of a cake smash, Grant’s mommy, daddy and I settled for more lifestyle focused shots and simply allowed Grant to explore the park in his own way. Honest, candid shots were ours for the taking!

It is a time filled with awe and wonder, as well as an opportunity to make new memories. Little by little, the wee little one learns independence (with much INTER-dependence as well) and helps mom and dad check off each milestone with glee.

I will leave you with a favorite photo duo of mine from the mini session… Grant accomplishing a HUGE milestone by standing up, wobbling on his own and… little by little… taking a small step (more like a giant leap)!   The transformation from babyhood to toddlerhood is simply breathtaking!

Happy 1st Birthday, Grant!

May you grow up to be a charming and wonderful little man!
