grass and tears and so much love: a first year experience at home

columbus ohio first year photographer Little Miss Janhavi took my breath away from the very first moment I met her.  She was my first newborn completely happy with lying in the grass (well, wrapped up near the grass).  I remember my tears falling on her blanket while I was photographing her – the beauty was overwhelming.  columbus ohio first year photographer And then the way her family adores her.  Goodness. columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographercolumbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer All three of her first year sessions were at home, just like big brother’s.  I love this.  Babies are generally at their best within the comfort of home.  Loved seeing her everyday reactions with mom, dad, and big brother.columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer At this session, she let me hold her and cry yet again.  She was my first baby session since sweet Gavin had passed away, and holding her brought me right back to him.  It was almost like she knew.  She snuggled right in and held me close.  Love this girl.columbus ohio first year photographer And for her third session, she was not just a walker, but a runner!  columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer sarah gee-5109 columbus ohio first year photographercolumbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer This next one cracks me up every time.  columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer And I can hear her laugh in the next one!columbus ohio first year photographercolumbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer columbus ohio first year photographer Always has a snuggle for mama.
