One Year Old Boy Portrait Photography at Dry Creek Park - Sergey Bidun
First birthday boy photo session at Dry Creek Community Park in Sacramento, California


There's something bittersweet about your baby meeting that one year old milestone mark. Your one year old is no longer a squirming, tiny, crying baby but rather joyful, semi-independent running around toddlers. A lot of parents want to make first birthday pictures a memorable and glorious experience for the whole family. First birthday photography is a popular way to celebrate the occasion and capture this special moment in time so you can enjoy it as a beautiful family memory for many years to come. There are a variety of charming and fun photo themes perfect for the unique personalities of 1-year-olds. Regardless of which first birthday photography theme you pick, our boutique Sacramento photography studio will help you bring it to life with beautiful and authentic photographs!

On one summer afternoon we met with young mom Halee who wanted to have a unique and unforgettable first birthday photography session for her son. She flew in out of state and was eager and full of creative and fun ideas to make her son Kiernan’s portrait pictures in Little Fisherman theme.

Without any hesitation, I supported her thematic insights, since I’m very familiar with fishing since my childhood years, and my parents are well known fishermen in the area. Together with Kiernan’s mom we decided on all the little details of the first birthday photography session, such as the right outfits, props and photoshoot location. Next, we worked out the time: based on child's feeding/napping/playing schedule and ideal timing fell on - sunset! One of my favorite times for outdoor portrait photography is at Sunset: when the sun produces beautiful warm light and amazing colors create background full of warm palette of colors.

For this specific Sacramento children photography session we chose Dry Creek Community Park - beautiful tranquil creekside spot, conveniently located in Roseville area, on the border of Antelope area. The Dry Creek Community Park is voted one of the best photography locations and best trail locations in the Sacramento area and has paved bike/walking trails which make it easier to access different parts of this beautiful park and creek. It wasn’t hard for mom loaded with various child outfits and photography props and children photographer with his equipment, to access any part of the Dry Creek Community Park. When hunting for that best children photography location, we took a little dirt trail that took us to a shallow creek. It was just ideal photography location for the first birthday photos. Little sandy shore, big trees with sun setting light splashing through its branches - gave a sense of a secluded nature made photo studio.

Not wasting any time I started setting up, wanting to capture the most precious moments between the mother and her son. Their bond was wonderfully glorious - the purest love. In this children portrait photography session I reflected in photos what I witnessed in person: mom's pure joy watching her child hopping over rocks happily and son splashing in sun rays touched waters. Kiernan’s blue eyes were telling a story of true unconditional love for his mom and a curiosity of what happens next. It is always a pleasure and lots of responsibility to portray true charisma of the family or individual during a Sacramento children photography session, and warm words of gratitude say it all - I accomplished the job that this family was looking for.

The transition from newborn baby to one-year-old little boy with his own personality is incredible. This age is often considered as a milestone for the little ones, before they become toddlers and run off to explore the big world.
