A few years ago I met the Ciloglu family for a summer session in the park. When I heard from mom about booking a session for their son's first birthday session, I was so excited to meet the newest member of their family!! We settled on shooting their session at Mellon Park Walled Garden, which an absolutely beautiful location, especially for sunset sessions. The family was fun and enjoyed playing around with each other, which gave me the perfect opportunity to capture those real, lovely moments between each of them! Plus, baby Kaya gave me the BIGGEST smiles! He was cracking us up with his expressions!
When it was time for cake, little Kaya was a little hesitant at first. He was definitely more interested in playing with the balloons. But big sister, Melda, was super excited about trying out the cake! She jumped right in and helped Kaya, which as soon as he tasted it, he went for it! While he had more fun playing with the cake and squishing it between his fingers instead of eating it, he did get a few bites. This made for awesome photos of his cake smash! Here are some of my favorite shots of the Ciloglu family's summer sunset session and Kaya's 1st birthday photos!
