Dean is 1! This big boy had his party and cake smash on the same day. His cute little star-shaped cake was set up and all of his guests eagerly awaited the big moment. He looked at it, and then was ready to crawl away. Mom brought him back and gave him a little piece to get him started. He was a little distracted by his guests and clapped with glee every time they said yay! His older brother and some of the bigger kids REALLY wanted to help Dean smash into his cake, but he did not share their desires. He had a couple nibbles but that’s about it! Sometimes kids dive into their cakes, and sometimes they are just not interested!
Happy 1st Birthday Dean!
I really have mixed feelings about this session. Natalie was the first baby to graduate from my GKids program! I was lucky enough to meet her at the hospital and again a few days later for her newborn session. Natalie has obviously grown a lot since then and look at her smile! She is not yet walking (lucky Mom and Dad) so I didn’t have to chase her all over the place to get these great smiles! My GKids have the option to join their babies for their 1 year photo and I am glad they did. These are some of my all time favorite family pictures and you can just feel the love.
I love how my job lets me connect with families in a way that makes me feel like I am a part of it, even if it is only for a little while. It makes me sad I won’t get to see her every three months. On the other hand, Natalie is going to be a BIG SISTER so I will get to see her eventually! I can’t wait to see if her new sibling will be just like her 🙂
HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY NATALIE!
It is always a pleasure to work with Savannah, she makes my job so easy so when her Mom contacted me and said SURPRISE I am pregnant and we have this idea in mind for a session I knew it would be fun! She told me what she wanted for her checklist and I had everything ready and waiting for them. I told her since I had her in I might as well put up another backdrop and make a little session out of it. I have been wanting to try out this new flower backdrop and she looked adorable in it. I am so happy she is going to be a big sister and very thankful to be a part of this special occasion!
