Aria is ONE | First Birthday Tutu | Indianapolis Children's Photographer

I was excited for this session - for one I was able to catch up with a high school friend and meet her cutie little family and secondly, I love one-year-old sessions.  All ages have perks and I enjoy all of them, but one-year-olds are not yet to the age that they really understand what is going on and usually don't rebel like some older toddlers.  In conclusion, if they are fed and well-rested, they are usually happy-go-lucky. 

I'll admit that Aria was a little hesitant in the studio at first.  She needed a little comforting from mom in the beginning but after we played around and blew up a balloon, she was pretty happy. (Seriously, who doesn't love balloons??)  I loved the little smirks she'd give us.  We did end the session around her nap time, so she laid on mom for a couple shots and then laid her head down on a blanket - some of my favorite photos from the session.  It goes to show that some of the best shots are unplanned.  (: 

I'm #1!!!

I know she is sad in the next photo, but I just love the emotion....the tuck of the bottom lip...

Nothing like being in mama's arms....

The "let's go home" fav
