Boca Raton Family Portraits

Oh, how fast the first year flies by! One day you’re just meeting that little human you both created… the next, they’re doing their best to blow out their birthday candle. The first birthday is a perfect excuse for lifestyle family photos. (Especially if your last session was when they were a newborn!)

As a Boca Raton photographer focusing on family portraits, my style includes your traditional, posed portrait, but also the natural interaction and love you have as a family unit. In a lifestyle family session, we get to have fun playing in the comfort of your home, creating a story that fully encompasses this chapter of your lives.

Why have a Boca Raton family portraits session at home for the first birthday?

Well, let’s be honest, the first year is hard! You’re all on this adventure together and now you’re a whole year into the parenting gig. It’s time to recognize the hard work you’ve put in! Life may not look like what you thought it would, but gosh, is it a beautiful one you have created.

Enjoy scrolling through this perfect example of why you might want to choose the first birthday milestone for your Boca Raton family portraits.

Loving the idea, but not wanting the session in your home? No problem! I have plenty of outdoor locations to pick from.
