I absolutely LOVE photographing one year olds – It’s just such a sweet milestone, made even sweeter with a cake smash at the end! Jacen was just as cute as a button and he LOVED his cake, maybe because mommy made it herself (amazing right?) as well as his cute little tie and diaper cover. Way to go mom!
When I photograph a one year old I love to get some typical portraits with a few different outfit changes and a few family shots in there as well. Those are the heirloom images that Jacen will be so grateful to have one day, the ones that show how much his mommy and daddy loved him and how proud they were of him!
Here’s a video of the whole shoot, Happy Birthday Jacen, I hope your second year is full of cake, smiles and cuddles!
So my oldest Jasper is six and a half and in kindergarten and since the day he started school I’d been hearing about Eleanor. How smart she was, how pretty, and how she was his “best friend”. Soon I started finding love notes to and from Eleanor and he started saying he wanted to marry her! It actually doesn’t seem odd to me at all that Jasper has a girlfriend because since the age of just under three hes had either a girlfriend or an unrequited crush! But I must say that when I met Eleanor I understood exactly what he sees in her, she’s GORGEOUS, smart, fun and they just have the BEST time together.
So I had this idea, why not do a little photoshoot of the two of them on Valentine’s day? I’m pretty glad I did, because isn’t this the cutest kindergarten “couple” you’ve ever seen?
Since I already had her at the studio, I couldn’t NOT take a few portraits of Eleanor and her fiery red hair in the snow!
Here’s a little video I put together of all of the images, hope it puts a smile on your face and warms your heart during this coldest part of the year!
When parents contact me in the 6-9 month age range I get VERY excited because that means I get to photograph a “sitter!” What is a sitter? A sitter is a baby in that small window of opportunity what happens AFTER baby starts sitting steadily but BEFORE they can crawl. It’s my absolute favorite time during baby’s first year because they are generally smiley and happy and they can’t get away from me :)
And when they are as cute as little Hailey – well that’s just an extra special bonus!
I can’t wait to photograph this little beauty again!
Happy Halloween from Snow White and Cinderella!
Spoiler alert: I think she’s going to eat that apple!
Little Luca Ace, such a happy name for such a happy guy! Mom Lauren planned a poker themed first birthday to play off his middle name and displayed some of the images from our session at the party. Gilda from Jolirose outdid herself with the amazing cake!
Happy Birthday Luca, can’t wait to see you again next time! xoxo
