It’s hard to believe that this little lady is already a year old! One of the greatest honors as a photographer is when a client returns. I just love watching my newborns grow and change and explore this big new world. And what better exploration than CAKE?!
We started off this session with a few traditional one year portraits. Then we moved right into the good stuff. But the funny thing about babies is that they don’t know how amazing this yummy treat is, so it takes them awhile to warm up to it. A virtue that I could stand to learn. A full cake in front of ME? Gone before you can say “big slice or little slice?”
After she coated herself in frosting sufficiently, she relaxed in a nice warm bubble bath. And then decided she was ready for some more cake. So, we did what any normal person would do…and served her cake while she splashed. This girl has my heart.
Remember that precious little songbird newborn from the other day? Well, 6 months ago (if you’re doing your math, this means that she is now almost a YEAR old!) we got together for a fun little half birthday shoot. It was so amazing to see just how much she had grown in half a year. She was full of those fanTASTIC gummy smiles and laughs.
And, we were able to sneak in a shot of her and big brother, which we missed out on at her Newborn session. One of the greatest things about this age is their obsession with their feet. But, who could blame them, afterall? Baby feet are THE best. Ever. Period. Infinity.
You would never believe that this adorable chunk came into this world barely weighing 6lbs. When I first met Baby O, he was so tiny and appeared so fragile. But, he’s as hardy as they come these days and such a heartbreaker. I am in love with that amazing red hair and ocean blue eyes. I could eat him up.
In honor of his first birthday, we let HIM eat it up. Cake, that is! But not before we got some shots of him rocking the cutest little bow tie. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a cake smash without a little splash time afterwards!
