Richmond Hill Child Photographer | Fortunate Enough

There truly aren’t words to describe how I feel about this sweet girl and her equally fabulous parents and grandparents. I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph Miss H. since birth, and she’s graced my studio multiple times since then. Her family is a fun-loving, kind, gracious, wickedly funny, motorcycle-driving, adventurous bunch and I consider them friends. A huge perk of my job is being afforded the opportunity to watch these babies grow up.

But no matter how wonderful it is to be a part of these children’s lives, the first birthday session is always bitter sweet. It almost becomes a habit documenting these babes every few months, and the first birthday session almost feels like an end of an era.

Catch Miss H.’s newborn session here.

Miss H. is a treat to capture, even if the lack of smiles say otherwise. I’d struggled to capture a smile out of Miss H. for months and we’d all joked that perhaps, finally, at her first birthday session she’d crack a few … and Miss H. beautifully delivered.

Grandma purchased the gorgeous multilayered tulle dress specifically for this session. As much as we loved it, Miss H. wasn’t quite so sure. 😉

(And yes, the wonky crown perfectly matches Miss H.’s fiery personality.)

A tree stump, “plush” cupcakes, and costume jewelry win over every little girl’s heart.

And then, all of a sudden, you’re over it.

In full disclosure, I completely missed focus on this shot. Normally I’d toss such an image, but I gave it to her parents anyway, letting them know about the flaws. There are instances when the story of an image trumps technicality. This was definitely one of those times. Despite the missed focus it remains one of my favorite captures.

Miss H. was all about her cake. I actually posted the first image as a sneak on my Facebook page with the caption, “Don’t touch my cake!”

The only thing dainty about this cake smash was Miss H.’s outfit, lol.

I had a poster size of the one in her big dress where she is looking down playing with the tulle. Megan, you do beautiful work. Thank you so much.
