share a cup of tea? | grand junction lifestyle photography

A few weeks ago, little Miss Olivia and I shared a morning of tea, giggles and first steps. Mom had scheduled a lifestyle photography session to capture the passing of her little one’s first birthday. I think lifestyle is my favorite kind of session. They are so unique to you. My goal is to capture a bit of your life to savor and remember. I think we accomplished that well here.

Love this little girl. She’s so beautiful. She was a little apprehensive but seemed to overcome that as our session progressed.  In the weeks preceding these she had taken her first unsteady steps. She was very proud to stand alone but still needed Mom’s gentle hand close by.

Just look at those eyes. Heart breaker for sure.

While shooting in Olivia’s bedroom I spied the tell tale signs of co-sleeping through an open master bedroom door that only another co-sleeper might recognize, a child’s bed rail on mom’s side of the master bed. Co-sleeping is near and dear to my heart as I’ve shared my bed with all four of my children. I know how special those first years can be. They are only little once and how quickly that time slips by. All too soon they don’t care to snuggle in deep next to you at night. I knew I wanted to send the two of them back to bed for some snuggle time.

Olivia, I thoroughly enjoyed my morning with you and can’t wait to get Mommy her keepsake album of our session. Soon, my love. I’ll see you again soon.
