Lauralyn Turns 1 - Brainerd, MN Baby, Child and Family Photography

Kids are the boss.

I learned that quickly in my photography career. Newborn sessions are solely guided by the baby's hunger level. No matter how funny I try to be and how hard a parent tries to bribe their child with the promise of a treat for good behavior, sometimes it just doesn't work, and the child will carry on with what they want to do. 

When we met for Lauralyn's 1 year photos the first time, it was a sunny September day. But the temperature was barely 50 degrees and the wind was whipping. Combine that with a tired little girl that just wanted to snuggle with her mama, and you don't have a very good mix for an outdoor photo session. So, we postponed, watched the weather, and met again the next week.

Lauralyn did not find me funny, and I had to work hard to coax her furrowed brow, but with warmer weather, the session was a success. She still wanted plenty of mama and daddy snuggle time and I was happy to photograph that. We also did a Cake Smash to celebrate Lauralyn's 1st birthday. HILARIOUS. It's a miracle I was able to hold still enough to take any photos - I find cake smashes so funny. 

Thank you to Joy, Miles and Lauralyn for being flexible and rolling with the punches. I hope you enjoy the images! xx, Laura
