One of my favorite things to do for sessions, other than ordering the cake and the actually shooting part, is planning. In this introductory, six month period, I've had a blast planning out each session and shopping for the items that will make perfect first birthday pictures.
We had this sweet little in the studio a few weeks ago and all I can say is Oh. My! For one, she's adorable! And I mean, let's talk about the drama.... because it's perfect.
Yep, that's a priceless picture. For me, those moments really capture the essence of being one. It's that fun age, but also the pre-"terrible-twos" era.... (is there a name for that yet?)
I loved the theme Maysn's mom picked. Purple was actually on my dream color list and the cow idea was simply too cute. I drew out the whole set-up weeks in advance and ordered everything (except for the cow balloons which Maysn's mom ordered and sent me a few days before). This was my first helium balloon adventure and that too was a learning experience! Here are some other favorites:
Planning this cake smash was an absolute joy and left me so excited for the next session I do. I've decided that these birthday sessions are just as fun for me! Happy 1st Birthday, Maysn Claire!
