This sweet little lady turned 1!! Before her cake smash we got some pretty outdoor photos with everyone including grandparents and great grandma. One of my personal favs is the 4 generations of ladies on Rachel’s mom’s side:-) Rachel is the master of outfits and costumes so you’ll see how fabulous Lorelei’s birthday outfit topped off with a sparkly hat was! Lorelei wasn’t totally down with the cake smashing idea so her big brother Ezra stepped in to show her how it’s done. My other favorite one is the sweet little kiss he gave his sister, uh so much cuteness!
I met Meghann, David, and Daxton when he was still in the NICU and I can’t believe he’s 1 already!!! He’s happiest when he can be on the go, crawling and almost walking on his own. Meghann did his birthday theme with the Very Hungry Caterpillar and the cutest little outfit. All my 1 year olds lately are not down with cake, but even with a few tears he is so cute!! We had Blueberry Blessings awesome pumpkin patch all to ourselves!! A huge thank you to them for letting us use their awesome property:-)
We photographed Nicole and David's wedding almost 4 years ago and at the time they were living in NYC. I am SO excited that they not only moved back to Tampa but we get to photograph them as a party of 3!!! Aiden loves Elmo and is just so freaking adorable!!! Nicole had this backdrop custom made by an artist friend of theirs, Matthew David. Aiden wasn't quite sure to make of the cake at first but with a little cheering on he had a pretty fabulous cake smash! Besides the actual photography part, I LOVE getting to see our couples grow into families and capture these amazing moments for them. It was so hard to choose but here's a few of my favs!
I love everything about this session with Lyani and Darren's family! Their boys are so handsome and full of life and energy. The toddler years are no joke (I have 2 of them so I can testify:-) The days are messy, and hard, and you are tired, but so full of love and moments that go by faster than you could ever imagine. I think toddlers make adults understand that life isn't always perfect and sometimes you just gotta roll with what you got. That's what I love about this session just real authentic moments with this sweet fam!
This handsome little guy just turned 1! Ezra is actually wearing the same sailor outfit his daddy wore when he was a little boy. Rachel had the cutest birthday banner and little bow tie with suspenders. It was his very first time having cake and he did not like it!! Rachel actually had to put blueberries on top so he would try it. Ezra has the most beautiful big brown eyes and eyelashes I would die for:-) These sweet moments are just so special!
