Matteo's 1 |Chandler Child Photographer

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

I loved my time getting to know this sweet little guy on his 1st birthday session. He's obviously changed since the first time I met him, check out his newborn sweetness a year ago HERE.

Even during his newborn session, he was wide awake almost the entire time and was easy going...just happy to be taking it all in. And, he's the same at a year old. He was easy going and very mellow. Although, he did make us work for the smiles.

Even between his smiles, my heart melted for this little guy!
Who can resist a sweet little grin?

Loved his little fascination with the random pecans he'd find laying around.

I always encourage parents to bring along items that are super special to include in the pictures. I loved the items Matteo's parents brought. I smiled big when I saw this fun drum. His father bought it for him after he was drumming on random things around the house. LOVE!

Of course, my favorite outtakes from his session! Definitely still not sure about me and holding on tight to him mom! I just so love this one though!
Happy birthday big guy!

I'm still amazed that you were able to capture all the many moods and characteristics of our little prince, and so beautifully! Thanks again for memorializing our sweet 1 year old forever!
