We planned a birthday bash at my studio in O’Fallon but little did I know that her birthday session was scheduled on her ACTUAL birthday! Talk about *the* sweetest way to celebrate! I’ve been photographing this family for the last 6 years and this session was especially bittersweet because she is the baby and now she’s a year old! Where does the time go?!

So…you better believe we made the most of it! We popped in and out of several outfits, grabbed a few nursing photos and wrapped it all up by snacking on a pint sized cake complete. Daddy even handpicked there flowers for her cake smash the morning of her session. Talk about darling! When I started photographing this family they lived in our neighborhood but they’ve since moved, had two more babies, and still make time to invite me into their crazy beautiful life.

Whether we’re on the side of a back road photographing their baby bump or in their home build during construction to snap Christmas card memories, we ALWAYS have a good time when we get together. I know this birthday session is the end of a chapter but I also know that it isn’t the end of our time together! I’m already dreaming of our next session where we’ll catch up and make more magic. Until then, this little beauty will surely hold me over 😀
