Does this family look familiar? That is because I have already done this amazing family’s maternity and newborn sessions. I love photographing repeat clients, especially ones with babies because it is always fun to see how much the baby has grown in the first year!
This sweet and adorable baby is Ellie and she was so much fun to photograph. She was full of energy and really enjoyed the cake, which was so fun. Sometimes 1-year-olds aren’t sure what to do with a cake, but Ellie dove right in. She loved when we clapped for her and gave us great smile and clapped her hands right back, which made for the cutest photos.
We did a few family shots, which I always love to include in baby photoshoots, and then we did individuals with each of Ellie’s parents with her. Then we did a few adorable ones of Ellie by herself. This is the usual flow for a milestone session and I have found it works really well and produces amazing photos! At the end of the shoot, we did the cake smash and that is when Ellie really shined! She had so much fun–until the end!
The photoshoot took place at my studio, which I love because it has tons of natural light, and that particular day was especially sunny to we had more than enough light to work with!
One of my favorite parts about photographing in my studio is the access to clothing and beautiful props my clients have. Mom borrowed the dress she is wearing from my client’s wardrobe and Ellie did the cake smash in my vintage high chair that is available to all clients. I love being able to provide beautiful clothing and props for my clients to use in their sessions, and they seem to always love it too.
It was a great day full of love and laughter and a really, really cute baby. What else could you ask for!
