This family lifestyle session was FUN. It is the kind of session I am having more and more requests for- a 1st birthday. As a parent the first year flies by and before you know it, your little baby is officially 1! What better way to remember your first year together than with an in-home session. It allows your child to be themselves, plan fun activities and showcase who your little person is at this exact point in life.
For this family, a 1 year lifestyle session was the perfect solution for what they were looking for. After working with them during the holiday season at a mini session, she knew she had to have something special for her little man’s birthday.
We started with nice family photos on the front porch (a part of their home that she loves) then headed inside to let little A guide the session. We played in a ball pit, climbed up the stairs, practiced walking. Then came the good stuff… a CAKE SMASH! This was his first time trying cake and after his first bite he dove headfirst into the remainder of it. After being covered head to toe (literally) in blue icing, we headed for a sink bath. Mom cleared the counters and let him splash to heart’s content. To end the session, Mom wanted him to make the big announcement for their family that they would be adding another little one this fall.
All in all the outcome was nothing short of amazing. Here are my favorite shots of the day:
