Smash Cake In-home Lifestyle Photo Session | Round Rock, TX

This little man turned 1 year old!

This little man had a blast making a huge mess at his first birthday party surrounded by his grandparents, parents, and aunts.  I was able to photograph him before the cake capturing his 1 year old milestone photos.  After his 1 year milestone photos, I shot a few family photos.  Then the cake came out!

Little man had no idea what to do with it after first.  His Grandma and Aunts helped him out after he tried to put out the birthday candle with his fingers.  The cake ended up everywhere, but he had a lot of fun making a huge mess.  And I had a blast photographing his birthday cake smash!

Family Photo Session | Cedar Park, TX

Photographing families is such a great joy for me.  This family's story really hit me hard as well for several reasons.  Mom wanted photos of her 1 year old son on his birthday because she wanted to create good, happy memories for her and her family.  Her little man was born premature and ended up in the NICU for awhile.  Being a photographer for The Tiny Footprints Project and photographing families journeys in the NICU, I know how much creating happy memories in a not so ideal place can mean to a family.  It means the world.

With a very happy 1 year old, his big sister, Mom and Dad, I helped create some happy memories for this wonderful family.  Happy Birthday little man!  You might have had a struggle at birth, but you are a strong and happy boy now!
