Superheroes! | Sibling Birthday Session

Abby has celebrated her first birthday, and Charlie turned 3!   I just love having these two in the photography studio, and the superhero theme made it so much fun!  Abby certainly is Wonder Woman after all she’s been through, and her big bro Super Grover is a little hero in his care and love for his baby sister.   I love that we were able to capture some fun individual portraits, and manage a few of the two of them together too.

Happy Birthday you two!


York Region Photography | Happy First Birthday

Happy 1st Birthday Abby!  This image is from the first part of Abby’s winning session (winner of the 2013 babies contest!).  Here she is, wearing a gorgeous dress that her Grandmother made.  It’s the same material as her mama’s wedding dress, seen in the background.  I will share the other images from her session- a joint super-hero session with her brother-  in a few days.  It was so nice to see this family again for such a fun session!
