It was a chilly, slightly snowy afternoon for these birthday milestone portraits. Little R has grown so much since I first met him at his newborn session, and it has been such a delight to watch him grow over the course of this year. We started out outdoors, taking advantage of the softly drifting snowflakes, stopping at one point for a quick snack for R (his mom said then “What could be more New England than a picnic in the snow?” with a smile). As R got chilly, we headed indoors, where he had fun exploring hallways and windows that were delightfully mirror-like. Another first year package has come to an end, but it was a true joy to work with these folks over the past year.
