Summer Birthday Portraits | Lexington, MA

I have been photographing this little one since the maternity session when her mom was pregnant, then her newborn session, birthday portraits for her first birthday, and now she’s two!  It has been such a joy to get to watch as she’s grown from an adorable little newborn to an active toddler with a serious mind of her own.    We met up at a field in Lexington, MA that’s a favorite of mine — it can be a little tricky for kids this age, though, this time of year, because there is basically no shade at all, so the best time to do portraits here is really right up against sunset, and this time of year, that’s pretty late for little ones.  Luckily, this little one is a bit of a night owl, so we were able to make it work.  Little C loved getting to wander all over in this giant meadow — with kids this age, I always bring ideas for fun games and prompts that will not only make the experience more comfortable and fun for them, but also bring out those natural expressions parents treasure.  C was game to play along for a little bit, but then she started making her own suggestions — which I loved!!  In fact, some of my favorite images from the session are from her ideas — I told her in a few years, she can totally intern with me and help me out 😉  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:
