Baby A turns 1 { Valley Glen Birthday Photographer }

Here are some outtakes of Baby A’s first birthday shoot. The final selections can be seen here,

but I love seeing the more casual shots that, although they wouldn’t end up on someone’s wall, would certainly be included in scrapbooks and photo albums. Often, it is these casual shots that fill in more of the details of the real story behind who a child was at that age. And kids want to know, “what did I like do when I was little? What was I like? Was I curious, shy, happy, friendly?” My boys aren’t that old yet, but they still love to see themselves in the past, although their past is maybe only a year or two ago! So it’s a great idea to get as many shots as possible to thoroughly document your child’s journey. They’ll enjoy it as much as you do, if not more.
