Allie's First Birthday Portraits at Home

Sweet Allie! Sometimes she looks so much like her big brother, it’s uncanny. We spent some quality time together at home on her birthday creating these photos.


I love shooting at my clients’ homes and using simple little corners with window light. Dining rooms are usually great – especially if they have a sliding glass door. How sweet is Allie’s little butterfly clip? And the nose crinkle! Swoon.


For these last shots we used her high chair with a banner from her birthday party, and I actually brought a small backdrop and flokati rug to simulate a studio setup. This isn’t something that will work in every home, but we had the perfect space in their eat-in kitchen with great light. Love her expression in the last photo – she was definitely over it!
