This family was one of my first clients when I first started my photography business and I have had the privilege of working with them many times over the years. It has been so much fun watching them become first time parents and then add their sweet girl Meira. I still can't believe that Meira is already a one year old! I'm amazed again and again how quickly the first year goes by. For her first birthday session, mom suggested a short, abandoned set of railroad tracks near their home. They wanted something a little different for their family photos and this was just the right spot for what they were looking for. Big sister Kali wasn't too excited about looking at the camera during our time at the railroad track but we sure got some awesome smiles from her in some one on one time with mom while at home! The best smiles are always the ones we get when kids are playing with their parents or siblings.
When it was time for Meira's cake smash, it was a family affair! Kali was standing by with a fork, ready to steal a bite when she got the chance. I even got a few shots of her getting a few forkfuls of cake! Who could resist?! Meira had so much fun digging into the cake. Once mom cut a little sliver into it, she dug right in and went to town! I love that mom chose to decorate the cake with little sprinkles, because it really shows detail in the photos. Sprinkles, sprinkles, everywhere!
