Madeyln | Lifestyle First Birthday Session | Padanaram Village Dartmouth, MA

Today on the blog is a lifestyle first birthday session for an adorable little lady! I often photograph first birthday sessions, but they’re always for cake smash sessions. I adore cake sessions, they are SUPER fun, (especially when they’re Harry Potter themed like this recent one HERE.) However, was lovely photographing something different for a first birthday session. Every family is unique and part of the fun of my job is catering to each individual family and creating a photography session just for them. I use my creativity to capture memories I know you’ll want to treasure forever.

So, when this family contacted me to photograph their baby girl’s first birthday photos and mentioned they wanted a more lifestyle approach, I was pretty excited! They spend a lot of time in Padanaram Village in Dartmouth, MA. If you’re local and have never been to this adorable village, I highly recommend it. It has shopping, restaurants, it’s a great place for a run or a walk, and it feels so much like cape cod to me!

We walked around Padanarm Village in Dartmouth for their session, and just stopped along the way at pretty spots to take photos. Honestly, Maddie took over the show stopping at places and walking around like she owned the place, it was too cute! I love getting smiles and giggles out of her, as well as some serious faces as well. All in all, we had a pretty great time capturing these lifestyle photos for this family! Being a photographer in Dartmouth, I love lifestyle photography because it really lets me get to know the family well, and I’m able to capture more candid moments as they happen. It calls for more organic, beautiful images.

I have SO many favorites from this session. I narrowed it down some, but here are some photos from this first birthday lifestyle session in Dartmouth, MA!
