Cate Turns ONE | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Milestone Session

Being a Memphis lifestyle family photographer not only means I get to work with amazing families, but I also get to be a part of such important times in their lives! I photographed sweet Cate's Newborn + 6 Month photos, so when her parents reached out about her One Year Session I was thrilled to see them again. So often I walk into a family's life as a stranger + walk away feeling like an auntie. This is the case with Cate, her parents + their pup!! Each milestone felt like a mini get-together, catching up on the months in between our sessions. I just love the way her parents envisioned our time together. They wanted to ditch the balloons, banners + cake smash to focus more on Cate + this time in her life. Babies don't keep, can I get an amen?? I have absolutely adored watching Cate grow from a newborn + loved capturing this big girl's one year milestone! I hope you enjoy the images as much as I did taking them!!

Six Months with Emma Paige | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Milestone Session

Little Miss Emma Paige was an absolute joy to photograph!! If anyone has been following KKP for awhile you'll know my endless love for milestone sessions. For me, it's one of my favorite stages of a baby's first year. Six month kiddos are just bigger...rolls upon rolls of chubby goodness, they can smile + express themselves, they have more of a personality + my favorite of all traits - they can sit up, but not move, which makes for a great session!! Spending my time with this precious family I could totally tell how much EP's parents adore her, but honestly how could you not...look at the sweet pea! She's such a happy baby + I loved every second with her! Scroll down for more of this incredibly cute session!! 

Squishy Six Months | Memphis Tennessee Baby Photographer

From newborn to six months this little girl grew in all the best ways. Her precious cheeks filled out, her belly got bigger, the rolls on her thighs multiplied and her facial expressions are to die for! I absolutely adore this precious family of three. Working with them is an absolute joy, not to mention the natural light that beams through baby girl's nursery is a dream! For a fun comparison of her growth there is a photo at the very bottom from her newborn session. I hope you enjoy this little gerber baby as much as I did photographing her at six months!  

I absolutely loved being able to photograph sweet baby girl in her heirloom baptismal gown.

For the last photo I thought it would be fun to post the shot from her Newborn Session and six months later. She wasn't quite able to sit on her own so mom sat next to her for extra support.
