Urban Milestone Session in Downtown Bellingham
It’s no secret that birth photography is my passion. Second, to that, I love getting to watch my tiny clients grow up! I have been photographing Erin since before she was born. I photographed her birth, did her 100 Day photos, six-month photos, her nine-month photos, and most recently, a fun urban milestone session.
[Sadly, I missed her one-year session because I was in New Zealand photographing the birth of my grandson, Montgomery!]
A Morning at the FIG
Erin’s mom, Lesley, wanted her haircut captured, and we decided to meet at the Family Interactive Gallery before her appointment to get some photos of Erin playing at one of her favorite places. And let’s be honest…to get some of her toddler wiggles out!
It was so much fun to
follow chase Erin through the museum. This is one very busy and determined toddler! She paid exactly zero attention to me and kept busy moving from room to room with determination and purpose. This girl is going places!
Once it was time to leave, we headed for a chilly but pleasant walk to the hair salon.
Hey, Renee, do you ever feel like a stalker when you take photos like this? Nope! Candid, documentary-style photos will always be my favorite.
After Erin was strapped in her stroller, Leslie and walked to Sandalwood Salon and Spa for Erin’s appointment.
Next Stop: Sandalwood Salon
Erin was amazingly patient throughout her haircut and the staff at Sandalwood Salon was amazing! They treated Erin with dignity and respect during the entire experience.
Erin was absolutely shocked by the hairdryer. This was the expression she gave her mom when the hairdresser started using it. It was such a genuine look of surprise that we all burst out laughing.
Erin’s subtle way of saying, “no thank you”.
All done and ready for ICE CREAM!
Ending our Milestone Session at Mallard Ice Cream
The three of us walked through the familiar drizzle of winter in Bellingham to Mallard Ice Cream, hands-down the best spot for delicious and unique ice cream flavors.
Thank you, Erin and Lesley for letting me tag along on your morning in downtown Bellingham!
