First Birthday Photo Session // Hunt Valley, Maryland

Dominique and Ina joined me at dusk in a field of buttercups to document her first trip around the sun. Ina was still getting a feel for her walking feet and those little fingers wrapped around mama's fingers were so precious and trusting. It's such a privilege getting to photograph the bond between a mother and baby at this specific time. I cherish the pictures of my mom and tiny-baby-me, and always like to imagine the babies I photograph finding these images twenty or thirty years down the road.
