Last weekend I got together with my friends Chrissy and Chris for their daughter Margot's one year old portrait session in Peninsula. Chrissy and Chris are former wedding clients of mine, and it was such a pleasure to photograph another milestone in their lives! Margot was one of the sweetest babies (almost a toddler!) that I've photographed. She was fascinated with the camera, inquisitive, and full of smiles.
We chose the Everett Road Covered Bridge in Cuyahoga Valley National Park for the session, since Chrissy and Chris live close by in Akron and we weren't sure if there would be rain. We began with some images in the lush woods and on the bridge, before it started pouring and we had to break for a few minutes. After just about 15 minutes though the clouds cleared and we were able to go down to the river as the sun came out.
A few favorite images are below. Happy (almost) first birthday to Margot!
