In their first year of life, babies change so much. Recently, I photographed my friends Kelly and Reny and their nine-month old son, Elias. I was amazed by how much Elias had grown since I photographed him as a newborn. He’s such a happy little guy and he seemed to enjoy having his photo taken. I thought it might be nice to see how much a person can change in 9 short months, so I posted a photo from Elias’ newborn session and his nine-month session. The beauty of photography is that it allows you to savor sweet, fleeting moments like these forever.
