oh how i love love love first birthday smash cake parties….i love the chaos and the mess (of the smashing part) and the squeals of delight by the smasher. and then there are the many fans cheering on said smasher…ahh all of it is just so fun. and i always stay way too long…taking way too many images with too many cameras. and i’ve even been known to stay and clean up too~!
and to be perfectly honest– i really wish i had a photographer capture my sons’ first birthday parties. what an absolute joy that would be to look back on and treasure for years and years.
this lovely family hires me for many events and i adore being around them. in addition to regular family photo sessions, we did baby sister’s first birthday party a few years ago as well. take a look back HERE
this little guy was hysterical to watch. he approached the cake with complete caution. mom is careful with sugar intake for the kids so he just wasn’t sure what to do with this yummy homemade confection placed in front of him.
but, he very soon figured what all of the encouragement from the nearby cheering section was for!
such an adorable and happy family. it’s never work to photograph them when i am invited over.
thanks, once again, for trusting in me to capture your lovely family memories. year after year it’s been a true honor to be a part of your lives. i adore you guys and the love you share!
