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 | Round Rock, TX

When a very special little girl turned one year old last week, I had the privilege to photograph her first birthday.  She was adorable, and her parents were such beautiful people as well.  Along with having a first birthday photo session, I also took their family photos with their dog.  And he was one of the most well behaved and trained dogs I've ever seen.  He was huge but loved this little girl immensely.  When families choose to include their dogs and pets in their photo session, I love it.  Because for me, pets are an important part of the family!  I love my dogs and will be a whole other blog session on my newest edition, Elliot soon.  Until then, wish this little girl a very happy first birthday!

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!
