Today I’m sharing adorable little Lakelyn! I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow, and I’m enjoying every minute I get to spend with her! I first met her Mommy when she was pregnant with Lakelyn. We did a gorgeous Raleigh maternity photo session. And then a newborn photo session, 3 month session, and now a 6 month session! I’m loving being her Wake Forest baby’s first year photographer.

Lakelyn was just starting to get the hang of sitting up when she came in for her portrait session. We mostly had to put her in baskets to support her. But we did manage to get a cute photo of her sitting unassisted, with her Mommy just outside the frame, ready to catch her if she toppled!

Isn’t this little half birthday hat so very cute? Lakelyn’s mama brought it along, and it matched my pink backdrop perfectly. Sweet little Lakelyn is just so perfect and sweet in her Raleigh baby’s first year photos.
