There were so many beautiful images from this lifestyle first birthday session, I had a hard time deciding which ones to share! I first met baby Emilia and her parents for their newborn session and I immediately fell in love with this sweet family! Mom and Dad are so kind and made me feel so welcome in their home. I also really loved Emilia's nursery and the adorable watercolor design they chose for her decorations. When I came back for Emilia's first birthday session, I again felt so welcome and comfortable - and it was so great to see how much Emilia had grown over her first year! We focused on some lifestyle images of Emilia in her nursery.... playing in her crib, reading books with Mom and Dad, and playing with some ONE balloons that Mom had hung up to celebrate her first birthday. Emilia was so engaging and fun - we captured the best smiles and interactions between her and her parents!
After some playtime in her nursery, we headed downstairs for the cake smash. They had an adorable little cake made with lots of sprinkles. Every birthday deserves a cake with lots of sprinkles! Emilia was not too sure about the cake at first, but once she got a taste of the cake, she dove right in! Some of my favorite shots in a cake smash session include all of the little details. The lips pursed while covered in frosting, fingers shoved inside of a cake, a fist squishing the cake between her fingers, little feet and toes with crumbs of cake and icing all around. Babies grow into toddlers so quickly, I really love capturing all of those tiny details because they won't be so tiny much longer!!
