Declan | One Year Old | Dayton Ohio Family Photography

Today’s blog features one of my favorite sessions to date, the fabulous first birthday session for Declan. Let us start with how much I adore the name Declan, so stinkin’ adorable. A very fitting name for such a handsome little boy. Since we have had Declan’s session on the books I have been anticipating it, I knew that his mother’s ideas would be perfect to create & photograph! Although the day brought us a little bit of extra wind their house made for a perfect location.

We started in his adorable nursery. What is not to love about a crib filled to the brim with balloons and a perfect comb over? Hello big gorgeous blue eyes…

Now added to the session was the BIGGEST party balloon I have ever laid eyes on. Pictures do not do this thing justice, it was HUGE! I have always wanted a giant giant balloon for a session, now I know that big balloons bring serious static hair.

“Hey, I hate this grass stuff! Pick me up!”

I always try to encourage the parents to jump in the pictures when I am photographing their little ones. Typically Mom is the one taking most of the day-to-day photos and it is nice being able to look back on the moments with the whole family that go too fast.
