A couple of weeks ago I took Leighton to get photos taken with the same photographer that took her newborn pictures one year ago. I loved the images Natasha (Dawn Photography) captured of her then, so it was an easy decision to use her again.
I typically don’t have much trouble getting Leighton to smile for pictures, so I assumed it would be a relatively easy process. Unfortunately little miss was quite skeptical of the lens in her face and four big people staring at her (my MIL and nephew were there too). She preferred to demonstrate more of her serious model poses. Luckily we managed to get a few smiles (not without some serious work) and even captured some of her early steps. I’m so happy I had these taken and I love the way they turned out!
I also loved the dress I ordered for her to wear in the pictures and for her party. It’s from the Aussie online boutique, Oui Babe. The quality and details are so impressive. You can’t tell in the pictures but it has pretty, intricate beading on the front. Her floral headband was from an Aussie Etsy shop, Little Eden Shop, and I’m obsessed with how cute it is.
I will be back later this week to share her 12 month update (the last one!), I’m just waiting until after her check up.
