Camila turned one recently and her mom brought her into the studio for a quick mini session to capture her first birthday cake smash. We got a few portraits right before the cake smash part, and then dove right into the cake! She was so cute and had so much fun smashing her cake!

This beautiful girl is my niece, Katie, who turned one earlier this month. We decided to do a last minute cake smash session in my back yard when they were over for dinner. Katie was teething and had no interest in eating the cake, and it started raining during the quick 15 minute session, which resulted in some hilarious outtakes. Her photos turned out super cute anyway, though. How could they not? She’s adorable!

Here are a few highlights from her cake smash:

I had to include the collage of my favorites:

And I couldn’t leave out a couple of outtakes. Her mom and I were standing in the rain, with me photographing the session and her holding an umbrella over Katie and the cake. They stayed dry while we ended up soaked. It was worth it, though!

I got to photograph sweet Payton as a newborn, at 6 months, and here are her one year photos. Her first year flew by so fast! I’m late on blogging sessions (as usual) and these are from last summer. I miss getting to see this sweet face every few months. Payton is such a joy to photograph, and was a sweetheart for all of her baby plan sessions!

Just a few days after I found out I was expecting my daughter Madeline, my friend Brittany called to tell me she was pregnant, too! Our due dates were just 2 days apart, and it was so nice to have a friend to talk to about each pregnancy milestone. Unfortunately, because Brittany lives in Jacksonville and I was already overdue with Madeline when her son Vince was born, I wasn’t able to take his newborn portraits. I didn’t even get to meet Vince until his first birthday party, which is such a shame! I traveled to Jacksonville for Brittany’s baby shower and she came to Tallahassee for mine, but once the babies were born, life got crazy busy and it took awhile before we were able to visit and let the babies meet. Our families spent a few days together in Jacksonville, going to the zoo and swimming and celebrating Vince’s 1st birthday. (One of these days, I might even get around to blogging his 1st birthday party photos.) The week after Vince’s party was Madeline’s first birthday party and Brittany and her family traveled to Tallahassee to celebrate with us. While they were here, I was able to take Vince’s 12 month portraits at a local park. We had so much fun chasing him around, and he wore us out! I have photographed dozens of 12 month olds and I’ve never seen one move as quickly as Vince! He is just such a sweetheart and I’m so glad I finally got to photograph him and spend some time with his sweet family. Here are a few of my favorites from his 12 month session.

Parker recently turned one year old and graduated out of my baby plan. This was his last session as a baby planner, after photographing his parents’ maternity session, his newborn session, and his eight month session. I will miss getting to see him every few months. He is always a joy to photograph and such a cutie with his full head of hair and bright blue eyes. This time, we included their family dog, Bella, and it was so cute to see Parker and Bella together!
