What a treat to see baby Lydia and her parents last week for baby girl milestone portraits! We had gorgeous light at one of my favorite spots to take portraits in Arlington, and it was so much fun to see how much Lydia had grown since I last photographed her four months ago! As an active 8 month old, she crawls, enjoys standing while holding onto things, gives high-fives, can hold her own bottle (we had a couple of snack breaks during out time together!) and is generally a joy to be around. My very favorite thing when families sign up for the Baby’s First Year Package is that I get to follow babies through the year and see how they change and grow and really become their own person — and I also get to see how parents change and grow and gain confidence throughout that first year.
With Lydia, Dana, and Chris, we did a full circuit around the pond, stopping to take advantage of some lovely blooming forsythia (one of my favorite spring flowers — mostly because it’s so BRIGHT at cheery at the very beginning of spring!), and spent some time on the playground, letting Lydia explore (and show off all her big kid skills!).
Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:
