Lehigh Valley Children's Photographer: Happy Birthday, Ayden!

Oh, sweet Ayden. He totally steals my heart, and so do his parents. You may recognize this family. I met them, blind date style, in July of 2014 at Peace Valley Park for their maternity session. It as a muggy morning and we got such amazing images of Maura's growing baby bump! After our session, she purchased a full year package to document Ayden's newborn, 6 month and 1 year milestones. Having a family commit to me for a year literally makes me get up and dance a happy dance. Not because you bought a big package from me, but because I look forward to seeing a baby grow in front of my eyes. I love getting to know the parents more and more with each session, often leaving as friends by our last session. And I just love experiencing these awesome milestones with your little babe. Capturing their first days in the world, their giggles and smiles, grabbing feet, sitting up, first steps, clapping... it's absolutely the most amazing thing in the world.

One of Ayden's newborn pictures is on a canvas hanging in my little EJP corner of my house. I look at his adorable little face every day. Seeing him at his 6 month session was just awesome. Sitting up, laughing, smiling, rolling over. I loved watching Maura and Greg relaxed and hanging with their little dude. And now, Ayden's 1 year session. I can't believe it. We had such a nice quiet morning at Lock Ridge Park capturing this big milestone. It was so bittersweet knowing that I won't see this family again in 6 months!! They've been such a pleasure to work with.

Maura and Greg, I've loved getting to know you and your sweet little family. I hope to keep in touch and capture some more pictures of you in the future. All the best!!
