It feels like just yesterday that Amy and Mark brought Ethan into the studio for his newborn session. We just celebrated his first birthday milestone session in the studio with a cake. He was all smiles until we brought out that cake. He was less than impressed with the cake but we still managed to get some super cute pictures of him.
Grayson came into the studio with his moms for a milestone
—his 1st birthday! He wasn’t a huge fan of the cake but he loved splashing in the bath at the end.
Cole joined me in the studio for his 1 year old milestone session with a smash cake. His mom went all out with decorations and ended up dropping them off ahead of time so I had plenty of time to setup before they arrived. This worked out well since Cole is on the GO! He’s fast and would have quickly lost interest if I made him wait to set up the background. His favorite part was the SPLASH at the end.
We started Willa’s 1 year old milestone session with some pictures with big sister and mom. Then we got to the good part….the fall themed smash cake! At first she wasn’t sure what to do with the cake and wasn’t too interested but once she got a taste, she dove in and ate it up! I loved that mom brought in a plain white cake and we decorated it with real flowers. The pop of fall colors was beautiful and it wasn’t until the very end that Willa realized they could come off the cake and started to share them with me and her mama.
Ryleigh turned 1 year old last month and joined me in the studio for a little belated celebration. You wouldn’t guess it from the pictures, but she actually wasn’t really into her smash cake at all but it was so cute with her pink tutu and the pink cake with balloons in the background. She did enjoy a little splash in the bubble bath at the end to get cleaned up.
Happy birthday Ryleigh!
Rocky joined me for an early morning short milestone session. This 9 month old was all smiles. I think his favorite part was the bubble bath at the end. It was fun to see how much he loved to splash.
It was fun to celebrate Uthara’s 1st birthday as a milestone session in the studio. At first she wasn’t sure what to think about the studio but she warmed up just enough for me to see her beautiful smile. Her favorite thing to do is have mom or dad bounce her…and snuggle…lots and lots of snuggles. So sweet!
I spent the beautiful summer evening trying to keep up with 18 month old Chase during his milestone session. It was a short family session so only lasted 30 minutes, but he had me moving the entire time…and thought it was hilarious. I’m so glad his mom was gifted this session from a family friend for Christmas and I was able to meet them 6 months later. Family pictures—what a great present!
I spent the morning at the Memorial Union Terrace to celebrate Harutaka’s 1st birthday. For this special milestone session, his mom asked to do it at the terrace. Harutaka’s dad is a PhD studio at Madison and they’ve lived here a couple years and want to make sure they remember all of their special spots they enjoy in the city. The terrace is always a favorite of mine too since it’s so colorful, no matter what (… well, as long as the table and chairs are out).
Happy 1st Birthday Harutaka! You are the cutest little sailor around.
Myles celebrated his golden first birthday at the studio with his big sisters. It was fun that his dad brought his fire fighting gear so we could get a couple pictures with him and Myles.
