One Year Old (+ a month)

We recently had Christian's 1-year portraits taken at DMC Studios.

In the spirit of full disclosure, we were a little slow to schedule them. So by the time the pictures were taken (a week ago today), Christian was already 13 months old. Hopefully this will not offend anyone's senses.
As you can see, Christian was extremely amenable to having his pictures taken. It helped that he thought the photographer's camera looked really fun. However, it didn't help that on several occasions he got precariously close to lunging to try and grab it.
He even allowed us to put this hat on his head for a few pictures.
While Christian was changing into another outfit, Ava stepped in front of the lens for a few pictures.
And of course we had to get some pictures of our two cute little kids together (never an easy task).
Christian was excited to have the photographer all to himself again (or maybe he was just excited to have another shot at getting his little hands on her camera).
Then he decided to get a little serious on us...
...but that didn't last for long once he saw this way cool armchair. (Incidentally, Ava has a pink armchair like this at home, of which Christian is extremely jealous).
And then Christian decided he was done with pictures and ready to go home.
We are so pleased with how well these pictures turned out, but sad to see our little guy growing up so quickly.

Wow, I LOVE these portraits! Christian does look really grown up, especially compared to your last post. He and Ava really look alike now. Both are adorable and (as always) enviably dressed. :)
Happy (late) birthday, Christian!

I'm guessing that studio had some type of wall with velcro on and off wallpaper? That's a good idea...or else a really huge studio.
