I'm so happy to finally share some of last summer's sessions from BEFORE I had Grace. This one is rather timely - Grace turns ONE in a week and a half, and we're planning her cake smash now!
This session is a perfect example of how you can work a themed shoot into a 1-hour portrait session. First we captured some unposed photos of Miss K playing, making sure to cover one-year-old milestones like standing and walking. Then she got to tuck into a sweet purple butterfly cake - and the whole family got some cake smash action at the end! Plus, there is a purple tutu and matching, sparkly headband. I die. (Mamas, you can find tons of similar options on Amazon and Etsy.)
My very favorite part of this work is watching families grow. I am so grateful to this family for trusting me with their memories of both their babies - from when they were in the belly, to roly-poly 6-month olds, to walking, talking 1-years with HUGE personalities. You can see highlights of big brother's first year on the TLP website in Featured Sessions. Those first years just go by too fast - capturing those moments forever is something every family should do!
