All grown up in a blink of an eye.
Back in 2016 I met Harper and her family for her newborn photo shoot.
She was tiny little bundle of sleepiness, who slept like a dream, snuggled in the cosiness of her mum and dad's gorgeous house. See how tiny she is in her dad's arms? Well stick around...
8 months later and it was time for a catch up.
Not a tiny baby anymore, Harper was now full of personality and had not only mastered the art of sitting, but was close to standing confidently as well.
They are the perfect little family to photograph, relaxed and happy for me to capture those natural moments.
And just like that, little miss Harper turned 1.
For the final photo shoot in their My First Year package, Harper's family decided to head to the park for some outdoor fun.
I've never met a 1 year old who doesn't love a swing so naturally it was the first stop.
From the swing it was time to climb and explore, with the help of mummy and daddy of course. There may have been a slight face plant on the slide at one point but after some hugs and kisses she was ready to take on the world once again.
Check out the image below - it's just FULL of her little personality!
From the play park we moved onto an open field where we had to try our best to be more interesting than the people playing football and the odd dog that walked past capturing her attention.
I love this image of her walking. I think it really captures her unsteady steps. Even in the short time it's been since taking these photos I bet her walking has changed so much.
Just like the swings, bubbles are a firm favourite and live side by side with my picnic blanket, ready to bring out at any outdoor photo shoot.
Now look back at the first image of Harper in her dad's arms and see how much she has grown in one year! And the insanely fast growing doesn't stop here.
I hope they continue to take the time to capture little moments like this as she grows (professionaly or not) as they will be so lovely for her to look back on when she is grown up.
