Happy 40th birthday to my wonderful friend, Emily! I had such a fun time photographing this 40th birthday cake smash photo session for her a couple of weeks ago. Emily, I hope you have an amazing day filled with lots of beautiful memories.
“A baby makes love stronger, the days shorter, the nights longer, savings smaller, and a home happier.”
I cannot believe it’s been a whole year since I met this sweet girl and her lovely family at her newborn session. It is such a blessing to be able to watch families grow as the years pass. I just fell in love with this family last year when I met them and was so excited to be able to photograph them again.
The weather was absolutely perfect…the kind of day you dream about all winter long. Kelly wanted this session to be a cake smash for Hadley’s first birthday, but also to include some family and sibling photos. One thing I absolutely loved about our last session was the beautiful energy that big brother Harper brought, and he did not disappoint. It’s so obvious how much he adores his baby sister and watching him laugh and run and play just brought a smile to my face.
And such a sweet birthday girl! It’s always interesting to see how the baby reacts to her first bites of cake. Some babies seem very hesitant and not sure what to do with it, but Hadley immediately dug in. She didn’t even mind when her big brother crashed the party to help her finish up the treat.
