Mabel's FIRST Birthday <3

I'm so excited to share this session I can barely stand it! The session was *thisclose* to being rescheduled due to thunderstorms. We decided to take the risk and I met the family in their back yard. It's easy to forget just how beautiful the north country can be. If these images don't have you convinced that a backyard and northern new york is the perfect backdrop, I don't know what will. 


 Mabel walked all over the place and was determined to grab all the leaves on the trees. 


She started the session straight-faced and unimpressed with the photographer, adorable nonetheless. 


The interaction between this gorgeous family was what made this session so amazing. 


We ended the session in a downpour. Luckily, we were able to hide beneath some trees to get a few more shots. 



And of course, the rain lent some magic to this image in front of an old schoolhouse that happens to be in their backyard. 



These images were worth the rain <3
