Adelina came for her newborn session a year ago and here she is again. I didn’t think it was possible for her to get any cuter than she was when she was a baby but look at this girl! She was so good during her shoot. We played with some bubbles, and toys to get her in a happy picture taking mood. She loved playing with the balloons but she really liked her cake. For some reason kids always like the fondant on the cake so that is what she started with and we had to help her get into her cake.
I always tell parents to let them bring their favorite toy or blanket to the session so they can feel comfortable and it’s always nice to have it in a couple of photos to remember what they were into at that age. She was into Minnie Mouse so she brought her toy and that was the theme for her session.
I love doing one year sessions! Especially after I see them as infants. I can never believe how fast they grow. When parents call me to setup appointments right before their birthdays I can’t believe that it has been a whole year since they came in for the first time. I always feel like I am celebrating with them when we do a cake smash. It’s the beginning of a new road for the family from a baby to a toddler. Kids change so much in a year it’s always good to come back and get pictures because they will change so much the first year. They will change a lot for the first five years so a lot of people come for birthdays for a few years just to have beautiful memories of their children at the beginning of their lives.
