Evangeline is a one year old!! I first met this sweet girl and her parents for their newborn session so when mom contacted me about booking Evangeline's first birthday session, I was beyond excited! I absolutely love photographing families over the years because it's so fun to see how much the sweet two week old baby has grown into a one year old!
When we booked her session in early May, we ended up with a chilly spring evening but had an absolutely gorgeous sunset. The trees were starting to bloom and the garden at Hartwood Acres was just beginning to grow. Evangeline was a little cold so I encouraged mom and dad to give her lots of snuggles to keep her warm. This also allowed me to capture some sweet, candid moments between mom, dad and their baby girl.
They brought a small cake for Evangeline so that we could photograph a few cake smash images. She did not want too much to do with the cake, which often happens with babies in their cake smash sessions. Some babies really go for the cake and others are more hesitant. So instead of cake smash images, we just took cake images to celebrate her first birthday! And anytime we can celebrate a birthday with cake is a great birthday!!
