Julia's 1st birthday

After the engagement shoot, the wedding day, the maternity session, nothing was cooler than walking back into Sophie and Jean Sebastien's home, turning the corner and seeing this walking/talking human, smiling at me! Julia, you are more beautiful than I ever expected. 

She loved the camera, as her mom promised me she should! She had her moments of fatigue at having to stay in one spot for too long, as seen in one of these shots; Sophie pressing her head to Julia's. I love some of those moments too. No photographer wants a babe who does nothing except cry, but it's a pretty real moment in their lives. That image makes my heart do summersaults.

Looking forward to seeing this little beauty get older (but no rush, Julia)!
