mckinley : omaha baby photography

Ahhh, little McKinley. And when I say "little," I mean it! We put the hat from Hudson's six month shoot on her, and it fell down to her chin! She's such a darling, skinny little thing! I know her well - I've shot her before she was born, as a perfect little newborn, and as a bright-eyed six-month-old. I couldn't BELIEVE it when her mama called and said it was time for her one-year-old pictures. She looks exactly the same as she did last time I saw her - same wispy brown hair, huge chocolate eyes, and bright smile. She's one of the happiest kids I've seen!

She has a fantastic white dresser in her bedroom, which makes for a very sweet picture when combined with a pink tutu - an accessory every girl should have!

How much fun is this stuffed elephant rocker? I can think of one person - one of my best friends, Wendy (a new mom herself and a fantastic graphic designer) - who would kill for it. Heck, I don't have any kids and *I* would kill for it. :)

An outfit change later, and she's still mugging for the camera.



We sat her on the window seat to get some pictures, and she immediately bolted for the books. The kid is fearless - barely walking and she stood up on the narrow ledge and went right for them! You can't see mom holding onto her just out of the frame, but she's there. :)

She just LOVES to look at - and chew on - books. She's going to be one heck of a reader! Mom said this is what her nursery usually looks like.




Doesn't she melt your heart?



Some flying kisses from mom later, the session was over. I missed her as soon as I left!

I am so excited for Lincoln's 6 month pictures with you-these are so cute! A friend of mine has a similar rocking toy to that elephant, but it is a snail. so cute!
