Photographing children is always fun especially when you’re documenting a milestone session. Blue eyed Beckett turned a year old and we photographed his 1 year portraits at Manassas Battlefield! Beckett has two sisters so of course we had to get images of them as well. Have you ever seen such adorable and photogenic kids?!

I brought the little chair to the session since it’s super cute and you never know if you’ll need it. Beckett loved it!! He loved climbing in it and standing on it. It helped keep him somewhat still as well. If we put him on the ground he made a mad crawl dash to something he could climb on, haha. His sisters loved it to so naturally they wanted a photo on it also.

Here are a few of my favorites from his Manassas Battlefield milestone session.
