Gia is 1! {1 Year Portraits :: Barron, WI}

I was super excited to have the chance to see Nicole, Jake and Gia again! They even had the privilege of having my husband, Paul, come along to help out. :) I was definitely not disappointed - we had a great time chatting with Nicole and Jake...and Gia is adorable! I can't believe she's already 1! Unfortunately, it was a little too cold to get some outdoor portraits, but we had fun anyway.

We took some pictures on a black backdrop...after which I had some fun in Photoshop. :)

She didn't like the idea of wearing shoes...and wasn't quite sure how to do "1"... :)

She was pretty good with the blocks though.

Amelia {1-Year Portraits :: River Falls, WI}

Amelia is ONE!! Last time I saw Amelia, she was an itty bitty newborn. Can she really be one already?

Amelia (and her mom, Jess & dad, Luke) came to my in-house studio to do some portraits - we planned to head outside too, but it was far too cold...even for January in Wisconsin. Amelia wasn't feeling 100%, but we got lots of great pictures. It may have taken a bit (okay, a lot) of parental silliness, but it worked!

How adorable is she?!?
