Right when you think that one-year old sessions can’t get any better…someone has the brilliant idea of combining it with a Christmas session as well! I loved this idea because Christmas time is my all-time favorite time of year. So I had no problem brainstorming different ideas for this sweet girl. Mom requested that we keep a few images non Christmas related to put the focus on baby girl, which was no problem at all.
Documenting Alisa’s Year of Growth
Alisa has learned so much in her first year of life. I made sure to highlight all of these milestones. She is sitting up all on her own, has a few teeth growing in, and is able to wave at the camera! I know how important it is to capture all of these phases because they grow up so quickly. The family will have full hearts every time they look at these images of their baby girl!
Mom brought in the most amazing dresses for Alisa, but I have to say that the purple one is my personal favorite! This bright purple was the perfect complement to the sparkling Christmas tree background, and I loved that it was unique from a typical red or green dress that we would be seeing. Something just as special and beautiful as Miss Alisa!
A Mother’s Love
My favorite part of this session was one mom (Zheniya) held Alisa by the fireplace and Christmas tree. This needs to be sent out to family members for the Holidays for sure! I know that everyone would proudly have this pinned to their refrigerators! They look like something straight out of a magazine. I had a blast working with this sweet family, and I hope that they all have a wonderful Christmas! I know that Santa will be bringing her lots of presents. Come on, how could he resist that sweet face!
How adorable is this Washington, DC Christmas Session?! I just loved being Alisa’s milestone photographer. Who couldn’t fall in love with that sweet smile?!
