Dayton Baby Photographer | Olivia First Birthday Session



I love being a Dayton Baby Photographer and getting to do sweet sessions like this in my studio! She came in the studio for a children’s milestone session to celebrate her first birthday.

Olivia was born two weeks before the world shut down due to COVID in 2020. Like many other 2020 babies, most of her life she has only been with her immediate family. I so feel for the mamas who had 2020 babies and weren’t able to physically share them with the world. Photo sessions like these are near and dear to my heart because I know they will spread joy to grandparents and family members who want to see this sweet girl!

We always have some tears at first birthday photos. It happens! I’m a total stranger and this baby girl hadn’t really seen any new people most her life! Sometimes I think a crying photo is adorable though. It’s who they are at this age!

Olivia totally rocked her session! I just love the theme her mama went for too. All the props in these images are part of my studio and available for use with any studio session!

I’m glad to be a Charlottesville Baby Photographer and seeing some more little people in my studio lately!
