On visiting Santa Claus

Paolo wasn’t into it.  He screamed and cried and did his best to escape when we went anywhere near Santa Claus.  But I was determined to have a photo with Santa this year. So Giuseppe and I were forced into the photo. It didn’t help that much, though, as Paolo continued to scream and tried to escape from the Scary Santa.  (Who was actually quite nice, especially considering the fuss that Paolo made!)

Portraits: Paolo’s first birthday portrait session

If you know me, you know that I am a little obsessed with portraits. Yes, I’ve had Paolo’s portrait taken five times in his 12 months of life: at three weeks, three months, five months, nine months, and 12 months.  I may have a small problem.  And then, of course, we had our first family portrait taken last Thanksgiving, so this year’s is coming up again soon.  I may have a problem.

Here are a few of my favorites:

And then we had a little fun. I brought a chocolate birthday cake for Paolo to dig into.  He thought it was delicious.

My baby is one year old. How did that happen?

My little guy is growing up just too quickly. With our crazy move, I missed his formal six-month-old portrait session.  I was very disappointed in myself, but I do have a lot of adorable snapshots, so they will have to do the trick for the photo albums.

So I made up by scheduling portraits for this month.  I am so happy with how they turned out.  It was a little bit more difficult to pose Paolo, as he is now completely mobile and decides his poses. (Try keeping his little member hidden from the camera when all he wants to do is move around!  I think this was our last nudie portrait session.) The photographer was great; she was so patient with my little mover!

Here are a few of the portraits.  I posted a couple of repeats, but with different color treatments. I just couldn’t decide!

(P.S. Have you noticed that I am obsessed with baby portraits?)
