First birthday photography
First birthday photography sessions are so bittersweet for me… especially when it is a baby planner like this sweet girl! It is so amazing to me how fast a year goes by. Even when they tell you to slow down, savor it, make memories, enjoy this time. This. Moment. A year goes by in a blink! This tiny, skinny little newborn of a baby is now babbling, laughing, crawling and sometimes even running… and it all happens before you even realize its been a year.
Sweet C was doing all of this above… she was really just starting to walk and be super mobile on her own during this session. She wanted to stand up and be a big girl! Everything really needed to be her idea too lol.
Originally we planned this session at a local tulip farm… they just happen to change their hours on us last minute and we didn’t know until we got there… ugh I was so upset and just couldn’t waste the gorgeous weather or a happy cute baby. We found this driveway… YES! A driveway and I asked the people if we could use it for their session and luckily they were SO excited about it.
I am SOOOOO happy with how this session turned out! It was so beautiful and the sun was setting in the most perfect spot with in this huge trees.
We started off with C alone and then got some snuggling in with mom and dad… i always love to get those as the first birthday is a huge milestone. C hammed it up for us as normal.
We ended the session with her cake smash… I mean what kind of first birthday photography would it be with out a cake smash! I always have a 50/50 rate of kids that love cake and the kids that don’t. I don’t know if it is the texture or the sugar but some love to dig in and others… like C… want it off their hands asap! hahaha
I still think we got some beautiful shots of this sweet girl. I can’t believe you are one! I can’t wait to see how you change and grow.
Thank you so much for choosing me to document her first year! I have had so much fun watching her grow! xoxo
