Chester County Newborn and One Year Birthday Portraits

I have a handful of clients who I have been photographing for years now, and this family is one of those clients! I first photographed Kelly and Garret at their wedding in 2010, and since then we have done maternity sessions, newborn sessions, and family portraits together. I love watching these kids grow! And their chocolate lab, Rugby, has been in almost every photo session (including the wedding) and basically won’t take no for an answer once he sees the backdrop set up.

In March 2014, I photographed Deaken’s newborn session! He was wide awake and alert for some photos, and sleepy for the others, BASICALLY a perfect little model. The family dog, Rugby, made sure to slide in for some photos.

Big brother Parker was super smiley and adorable in between photos of Deaken. He is such a ham!

One year later…

One year later, and Deaken is a year old!! Rugby dog is still trying to steal the show, but Deaken’s smiles and expressions win everyone over.

Outside their home, we grabbed a few family photos and took advantage of the spring-like weather!

Deaken sported some fancy suspenders, and then changed into a tie for his dairy-free cake smash! He wasn’t too sure about it, but ended up figuring it out in the end! but by this time, he was pretty tired! 🙂

Deaken’s first year flew by! I look forward to many more years of documenting this wonderful family!! <3
