Six photo sessions with this family in the books now. We’ve been together for two maternity sessions, two newborn sessions and two first birthday sessions and I’ve loved every one of them. But this last session I was a little worried about the timing of it all. I booked it ahead of time knowing I’d be 37 weeks pregnant when the session took place and as you can imagine, the homestretch of pregnancy is anyone’s guess so I was relieved we got this baby girl’s first birthday photo session in.
I could barely keep up with this active one year old and she wasn’t feeling her best (although, she had me fooled), but somehow we pulled it off and I’m so glad we did!
The session centered around her with lots of love from her parents and big brother. She was also happy being her own little lady and taking off to get her solo shots. Her flower crown stayed on her head the longest when a yummy cake was put down in front of her. She was dainty with the cake at first, but she got the hang of it quickly and some smashing took place. Happy first birthday pretty girl!
Here’s a peek at this baby girl’s first birthday photo session:
