Grace's First Birthday Session in Burlington, Vermont

Happy first birthday to Gracie!

You may recognize this gorgeous family from their newborn session last year. Now, Grace is learning to walk on her own, and I was amazed to see her take a few unassisted steps during our Burlington session! It is the best feeling to meet a newborn for a session and then see how much they grow through the years. Grace now has curly blond hair, and looks like a perfect mixture of parents David and Katie.

"She's so outgoing and sweet," Katie told me. "She lights up when anyone enters the room."

David and Katie have been mostly working from home during the virus, and David told me he's found the silver lining in seeing Grace and Katie more than he would have otherwise. And, he added, "she didn't react to masks. She won't remember any of this." To her, she just gets more playtime with mom and dad, and they've been exploring beaches and parks together (Grace loves the water).

Towards the end of our session, Katie presented Grace with a cake that she made (HOW ADORABLE?) and hilarity ensued as Grace delighted in fistfuls of frosting. The perfect birthday, really.

Congratulations to these cuties, and thank you for including me in these special moments!
