Veronika Paluch Photography
This session was a first birthday session for a long-time client. Before the cake smash (if that’s something that the client wants), I like to take simple portraits of the little one. Leo wore a simple cotton bonnet and knit pants from my studio wardrobe – there’s nothing sweeter than a baby in a bonnet! I typically don’t use props in my sessions – I prefer to keep the focus on the baby – but was inspired by these wispy grasses I found. Leo is a winter baby, and they reminded me of the tall grasses, lightly covered in snow or frost, that cover southeastern Pennsylvania in the winter. I loved that Leo’s mama was included in the portraits, too!
