Amy, Paul and Molly returned to my studio this year for family photos. As Amy noted, the changes from newborn to one-year-old are mind-boggling. (Here are some of their portraits from just a year ago! http://maundymitchell.com/a-newborn-portrait-session/)
We tend to spend our first year as parents so intensely focused on baby that we can lose our sense of individuality. It’s a hard balance. This year, I suggested that both Amy and Paul allow me to create individual portraits of them, in addition to portraits of Molly, and portraits of the whole family.

Amy, before and after styling: The portrait experience includes professional hair and makeup styling. It’s a relaxing treat, and there is often a shift in energy–in confidence–when you feel special.
