We celebrated a big occasion here last week when our young man turned 7! This year is the most excited I've ever seen him for a birthday... and its been truly amazing to see our little guy come out of his shell. He has always been a little bit reserved - you never really knew when he was happy or excited because he has perfected his poker-face quite well (a trait he has inherited from me!)
But on his birthday, it was like he simply decided to let those emotions out and show the world that he was having fun. He spent the day laughing, dancing, joking and smiling... more than I have ever seen. It really warmed my heart to see his shyness and self-consciousness start to melt away and see his lovely little personality shine through, and that has continued all through this week too.
Sometimes I feel sad that they are growing up too fast, but other times, like now, I really cherish seeing them change, grow and become confident, happy little people. This, right now... is such a golden age.
This weeks blog features beautiful little Arielle! This cutie-pie was 25 days old (3.5 weeks) on the day of her newborn session - and she was awesome! I do so love capturing some of those wide-awake moments, and after a little top up feed she slept like a dream.
Mum chose neutrals and pale pinks for the colour theme for this session, it was so girly and sweet - just like miss Arielle!
Here are a few favourites from this session:
