Colton – one year

FILED IN: Kids, Newborn Babies

It has been such an amazing honor to photograph Colton over the course of his first year! I photographed his parents’ wedding many years ago and had been anxiously waiting for them to have a little one of their own. We kicked off Colton’s modeling career back in late fall of 2012, before he had even taken his first breath, with a rustic outdoor maternity session on a farm in Fairfield County CT after some fresh snow.

Colt was not quite so cooperative once he was here and gave me a bit of a hard time for his newborn photography session but his cuteness sure makes up for that!



“You can’t make me sleep. Nope. Not gonna happen.”

“Okay, maybe just a little…”


A few months later I got to see Colton (and his mom and dad – funny how parents are left out once baby arrives!) once again for his 4 month photos- he was not in the best mood but my goodness is that boy adorable!



He was just a *little* excited about his feet. =)


When Colton came for his 9 month portraits I couldn’t believe how much he had grown – his personality was definitely starting to develop!

He’s a little shy at first but he loves to give smiles and dance. Is this child not the spitting image of his Dad?! Same hair too. 😉

Most recently, I got to see Colt and his parents for his one year first birthday portraits and cake smash – oh my goodness what fun! Colt loved the balloons but didn’t want too much to do with showing off his standing skills.

And then it was on to the REALLY fun part – cake smash! Colt dove right in and also decided to do a little finger painting on the balloons as well!


Happy Birthday, Colton!!! It has been SUCH an honor capturing your first year of life – I can’t wait for the years to come!
