Brooklyn was back in the studio for her portraits. I always recommend the parents have their babies photographed three times in the first year. Once, as a newborn, once as a chubby little baby that can sit up independently (6-8 Months) and again for their one year session.
Little Brooklyn here wasn’t quite sitting up yet and her mommy was just so excited to get her portraits taken again, that she just couldn’t wait any longer! 🙂
That’s okay, because she did a great job and we still got some really fun images.
I love the one with her pink monkey shirt where she’s grinning really big. Her face looks just like the monkey on her shirt.
Then the ones in the tub were just sort of an inspiration I had… which I’ve done variations of before, but I don’t think I’ve ever had mom blow bubbles… which added a nice touch!
And the funny little expression where she’s checking out the rubber duckie!!! Priceless!
Then there’s the tutu and the pretty dress… ugh! She’s just so stinkin’ cute! I had a really hard time picking a favorite for the proof book cover.
I’m just glad I got so many smiling, laughing pictures because at first, all she did was kind of scowl at me and look at me with this really distasteful expression. 🙂 I think she was trying to decide if she liked me or not. I was all over the place, working my butt off to get her to smile. Glad she decided in my favor!
If you follow my blog at all, you should recognize little Ruthie by now. Her mommy and I have done four sessions already this year now. 🙂 (not just for Ruthie, but for her family and her mother’s family as well)
But back to business… Ruthie is just too, too cute! I mean it! I don’t think I can look at another picture of her smiling. It’s making me sick! I have such a hard time narrowing them down! 🙂
It’s about as bad as when I have to narrow Collin’s pictures down. LOL!
And Ruthie is the queen of making funny faces… really cute ones! I also know how much her mama adores the “bloopers” so we have quite a few to pick from and I’m thinking a collage will be necessary.
P.S. Don’t you just love the pettiromper on Ruthie??? I think they work so well for the 6-12 month baby girls. I have three of them… in pink, ivory, and aqua!!! 🙂
