My baby turned one last Tuesday. Our plan was to celebrate with cupcakes at Trophy, but then it snowed and since we live on a hill, I was too chicken unable to move my car. Ok, change of plans… I’ll just make her some cupcakes! Or not. I had exactly 4 eggs left and was cooking a big ol’ Thanksgiving feast 2 days later and had no idea if I was going to be able to make it back to the store like I planned. Luckily, we live a block or so from a 7-11 and sometimes they have eggs. Even though I am super klutzy, I was determined to have my baby eat cake in some form on her first birthday so I carefully made my way to the convenience store. They didn’t have eggs, but they did have the nastiest “fresh” cupcakes and the day was saved. I know, it sounds silly, but this was causing me great stress! I finally made it back home (after busting my butt 3 times) with cupcakes for my girls and they didn’t even care that I thought those were the grossest cupcakes on the planet because it was the little one’s first real taste of sugar and what 4 year old complains about any type of cupcake? Our celebration was topped off by a good old fashioned snowball fight with Daddy. It was definitely a memorable birthday, and I don’t think it could have been better. Here are a few photos to show off my babies. We’ll celebrate Ophelia’s birthday with friends at Twirl Cafe this weekend then Juliet’s party is the following weekend at the Children’s Museum! And, of course, more pictures will follow.
Audrey’s momma signed her up for my last mini sessions. Unfortunately, the rains came and she was the only successful mini session that day. However, she came prepared with a rain jacket and rain boots and so we just shot through the sprinkling and managed to finish right before it started pouring. I loved photographing her dainty little features and serious expressions. She is such a pretty baby.

It was such a pleasure to photograph this family. I got to shoot them in my current favorite location and they were so easy to work with. Little Skylar turned one the day before our session and was just a ball of cuteness! She has such an adorable personality, and who can resist those brand new baby steps? You know the ones – that deliberate, careful, high step that is standard for the first few months of walking. Adorable, I say! Adorable! Here are some of my favorites from my time with them. (And aren’t they snazzy dressers? Future clients, take note!)
