Ok, I know…I posted a TON more pictures in this blog than I normally do. But, sometimes this cannot be helped due to the cuteness overload making it nearly impossible to select just the right ones to feature. And in my defense, we did do family pictures, 1 year pictures, and a CAKE SMASH! I love when we get a little bit of everything wrapped up into one session. It makes for a very fun evening!
So, let me introduce you to the S Family! I met this beautiful mom at a Quad City Moms Blog Event where I was the event photographer. I had the amazing opportunity to showcase some of my work and speak with other Quad Cities moms about family portraits. This family booked me for the little guy’s 6 month pictures last fall, and then now we just did his 1 year pictures along with a cake smash.
Let me tell you…this little guy is such a ham for the camera! I absolutely LOVE to see him, and his parents of course! And check out the amazing outfit selection. This little guy always shows up dressed to the nines. He could seriously be a baby model I think in his adorable little outfits!
With my one year portraits, I always ask the parents if they would be interested in a cake smash. These are some of the most precious shots you can get. Some kiddos dig right in, while others…well, not so much! This little guy did a pretty amazing job at going right into it. He LOVED his cake! We decided a vintage high chair would be the perfect fit for this little one to have a little easier access to his cake. I really like the way these turned out…isn’t he so cute!
Please enjoy some of my favorite images from this session. Don’t forget, if you have a little one about to celebrate a one year birthday, please feel free to message me so we can have a little fun just like with this session! Enjoy!
