Whimsical 1st birthday shoot

I absolutely love when families want to do something a little creative with their session. This mom sent me a photo from her oldest daughter’s first birthday shoot that they had done in the past and wanted something different but equally sweet and creative. So we came up with a few ideas to try at the session! We focused mostly on the 1st birthday girl but let mom and big sis jump into a few photos too. I love the fun-loving nature of these photos and seeing curiosity and joy through the eyes of a toddler. Here are my favorites!

Just the two of us

Last holiday season I was invited to capture these two darling kids for their holiday card. We shot the photos at their home and I loved the spirit and energy these two had. From dance party in the yard to peek a boo in the curtains with a grand lollipop finale, these photos just make me smile. And look at those GORGEOUS eyes! Such a fun shoot, here they are:
