One Trip Around the Sun: Asheville Child Photographer, Sonya Stone

I am fan of birthdays; to me, birthdays are a time of reflection and celebration. And any excuse for cake and presents, I'm down. The first birthday is so special...there is so much going on, transitions every day making this little person less a baby and more a toddler. It goes so fast! If you don't catch it, you'll miss that window. And if your memory is like mine, you'll find yourself frantically searching your mental files in a few years for the details of this baby who is now so different. Perhaps one of the reasons I love photographs to keep those memories easily accessible and to look back with joy at the sweet little faces (especially when the older version has just rolled her eyes at me!).

A few days ago I met a sweet little birthday girl and her grandma. The big party will have to wait because baby I's mama has to be away, but what a wonderful gift that grandma is giving by booking a session to capture this special time. And I love sessions like this...relaxed, fun, getting to know this precious little child. xo
