Off and Running! {One year baby photos - Sarah Elizabeth Photography, Maple Grove, MN}

This little lady was an early walker, so it was no surprise that she was off and running when I saw her for her 1 year portraits. We found a beautiful open lawn at Elm Creek Park and Raya had a great time chasing her mom around while I snapped these photos. We also tried out a vintage highchair that I picked up a couple weeks ago. Raya didn't have much interest in her cake, but she sure looks cute in the high chair!

Six month photos at the Walker Art Center {Baby Plan Sessions - Sarah Elizabeth Photography, Minneapolis, MN}

It was cold and raining outside on the day of Avery's 6 month photo session, so we switched gears and went inside to the bright, cozy, warm lobby of the Walker Art Center. Avery had fun showing off her crawling skills and was happy to explore the museum.  We even found a bit of greenery over at the Cowles Conservatory. Can't wait to see this little cutie again for her one year session in just a few months!

First and Last Day of School Photo Idea {Minneapolis MN Children's Photography - Sarah Elizabeth Photography}

Today is my daughter's last day of first grade and I wanted to document the day with a special photo.  I did this same photo project last year and it turned out so well that I'm going to make it into an annual tradition. 
First I found a photo I'd taken in September on the first day of first grade and had her dress in the same outfit. As you can see, she wanted to add leggings and a scarf this time for a little extra flair! :)   Then I snapped a photo of her holding an empty picture frame. Finally, in Photoshop, I cropped the photo from the first day of school and edited it into the inside of the frame. It's fun to see how she's changed since the beginning of the year!
