Watson's First Year: Milestone Photography
Over the last year, we had the pleasure to not only spend time with the Winter family, but to witness Tara and Brent become a family. From the birth of little Watson through his first year, we had the pleasure of photographing their maternity pictures and Watson's newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and 1-year milestone photography session.
The Maternity Session
Tara and Brent invited us to their home to document their pregnancy. We had the privilege to be the first ones to see baby's nursery too!
Tara and Brent's black lab, Jack was waiting in anticipation with the rest of us to see how their lives would change when Watson entered the world!
Watson's Newborn Pictures
On April 8, 2015, Watson John Winter was born. He was picture-perfect, rocked his first milestone photography session and officially made Tara and Brent "Mom" and "Dad."
Seriously though, how cute are those little baby feet?
Watson and Tara came back to visit us at our studio when he was 3 months old - and as cute as ever. Watson managed to bring his "A" game in terms of personality to every single session.
We visited the Winter family in the fall to take Christmas card pictures - and capture Watson at 6 months. To our pleasant surprise, he was already sitting all on his own...and in that adorable little old man sweater at that!
It was the middle of winter for Watson's 9 month pictures, so they came to visit us again at our studio. At 9 months I have never seen smiles like he had ready for his milestone pictures! He also managed to keep Tara, Jon and I all busy for well over an hour ;)
We also love when moms and dads come ready to get in on the picture action. Especially in their first year, kids change from day to day. Getting in on a picture today will be different than tomorrow so we encourage parents to seize every opportunity they can!
Watson visited us again in our new studio this spring. Just look at the difference from his 9 month to is 1 year milestone pictures! It's as though he went from baby to little boy in 3 short months!
For this session both mom and dad got in on the picture action - looking better than ever!
We have absolutely loved seeing this family develop over the last year. From their engagement and wedding pictures to their first family photos, we can't wait to see what the next few years brings!
