And here is the picture that really makes me miss having a baby. I miss those kisses!
Big sister is another of my favorites. I have loved her smile ever since she was a baby herself. (See her 6 month session here.) She likes photography so she helps me out with ideas, helping the baby to smile,
and I love that she wanted to wear the same hat she wore for pictures when she turned one year old herself!
Her parents brought balloons, and even though two of them escaped up to my high ceiling, she was okay with it and kept on smiling. (This would not have been the case when my kids were her age.) The second awesome thing about that is that her parents brought extra balloons just in case this happened, I love it. (We got the balloons back down later with a ladder.)
We liked Baby's princess hand in this picture.
Some babies don't love changing clothes, but she didn't mind at all. I love this outfit, it just (again) makes me miss having a baby girl around!
This is the age for standing up and loving it!
I don't think I can pick a favorite picture from this session. But maybe this is it.
And here's that birthday hat again. How many babies keep hats on for pictures? Not many.
After that it was time to get out the cake! Babies are so funny with cake smash photo sessions. Sometimes they love it, and sometimes even if they like cake they don't want to eat it right then.
She never minded having the cake around, and she didn't mind having her fingers sticky (that is often a problem), but she did not want to eat the cake.
Here she is waving bye-bye because she is all done with the cake. I love it.
Notice that she is so happy, and there is a little frosting on her, but there is very little frosting near her mouth. Today was not the day for actually eating cake. (Bonus - with a little re-frosting, the cake is still good to use later on.)
Any cake smash session with smiles is a success in my book! I'm just glad she was happy, and I'm so grateful that this awesome family has trusted me with their baby photography again this last year!
I have a bunch more baby photography, along with some info on my baby plan options, on this blog page - check it out!
I offer four different options for baby photography collections. If you are interested for yourself, or if you have a friend or family member you might like to gift a collection to, I have an online magazine with more information that you might like to see. You can send me your email address below and I will email you a link right away.
