Mother-Baby: seeing the connection through a camera lens

Attachment parenting really works. Check out this photo essay showing some of the concepts of the Circle of Security as seen through the lens of my camera. Shayla and her almost-one-year-old toddler, Elijah were awesome subjects during this photo shoot. She has a strong foundation in attachment parenting from taking one of the parenting classes at Florence Crittenton in Helena, Montana.

Delight in me …

Elijah’s first birthday is coming up soon and his mom, Shayla, wanted some photos to celebrate and mark the occasion. We went down to Reeder’s Alley and played around on the brick alley and in the grass to get these cute photos. Elijah obliged me by being super cute — and totally not shy of the camera. May he always be this way, even when he’s in his teen years! Here are a handful from our photo shoot last week.

Shayla gained a great foundation in attachment parenting through the Florence Crittenton’s Parenting Classes. I have used concepts from the Circle of Security to caption these photos. If you want to know more about attachment parenting and the Circle of Security, check out the handouts at Circle of Security International or sign up for a parenting class through the community outreach center at Florence Crittenton.
