Baby’s First Birthday Family Photos in Charlottesville, VA


This sweet family reached out last fall, as they were anticipating their son’s first birthday and to top it off, their fifth anniversary. After some rescheduling due to rain, we. ended up making the session happen the day before this little man’s birthday. A busy weekend for him!

I always love the first birthday milestone…watching their personalities start to come alive more and they become more on the move. They say a lot can happen in a year, and in a baby’s first year, it can feel like even more happens. Your baby changes each month and you as parents change so much from the person you were before you had your little ones.

Each of my family collections include print credit so that you & your family can enjoy prints to hold and prints to hang, whether that’s a set of prints, a wall gallery, or an Heirloom Book. This family chose an Heirloom Book to enjoy their session with. The Heirloom Books are one of my personal favorites, because I simply adore seeing little ones enjoy them as they get older! And this sweet mama had such kind words to share about her experience:

“We had the most incredible experience with Amy. She took the most beautiful photos of our family to commemorate my son’s first birthday and my 5 year anniversary with my husband. She made all of us so comfortable and the whole experience was an absolute joy. This was my first time having family photos taken, and she was so supportive throughout the entire process, from selecting the perfect location, to giving feedback on outfits. I’m so glad Amy encourages her clients to select heirlooms as well- we selected a gorgeous photo book I know we’ll enjoy for years to come.”

Enjoy a few favorites from their session – Charlottesville is one gorgeous place to live isn’t it!?
