i get to photograph a lot of newborns,

and it is always amazing to me when i photograph a one-year-old.

in one short year, these little people go from sleeping, crying infants, unable to do anything on their own.

just a short year later, they are walking, beginning to talk, eating real food, and playing.

beautiful baby jaxon is almost one year old, and full of sunshine.

i have no doubt this past year has been full of joy for everyone in his life.

one of my favorite things about one-year-old sessions are the cake smashes!!!!

getting to watch these little ones eat their first sugar is pretty fun.

some kids dive right in and others want nothing to do with it.

sweet jaxon liked playing with it, but he wasn’t so sure he wanted to eat much.
