Marianne's Turning One!
Kate contacted me through Facebook to take pictures of her daughter Marianne to capture a milestone in her life...Marianne was turning ONE! We discussed location options and chose the West 11th Street Park in the Heights since it was close to them. I had never been there or even seen it but it turned out to be a really cool location with a lot of potential.
We kicked things off with getting some pictures of the whole family.
We managed to only get one with them all looking at the camera and as you can see this is not that one haha. I love this one because it captured how the rest of the session went. Marianne's brother either had his eyes closed or wouldn't smile at the camera (you can see a hint of a smile on his face in this one though). I love the genuine laughter on Kate and her husband's face.
After that we brought out the bubbles...
We also tried to use some props but Marianne was more interested in playing with the leaves on the ground. When she did have the 1 that I gave her to hold she would without fail turn it backwards and hold it out towards the camera.
We even tried to get brother to help out...
I had a wonderful time with your family Marianne!
