I love when I get to watch little ones grow up. I’ve taken so many pictures of this little man’s sisters, and started photographing him way back when he was in his Mama’s belly. Henry’s newborn session was actually one of my first sessions right as I was starting my business. You can see that post by clicking here. So when I was asked to do his one year pictures, of course I was excited! For his first birthday party, he is having a sailing/camping theme so we decided to include that right into his session. And oh my, those eyes! What a handsome young man he is growing up into.
Of course the highlight of a first birthday, CAKE! So we made sure to get a cake smash in as well. Henry had so much fun! He really went for it and even got his little feet in there which was so adorable. Some babies don’t get really get into a cake smash, so I loved that he dug right in there, hands, mouth, feet, everything. As you can see, he was covered by the end.
In the end, we headed outside just to get a few pictures with his tent and set up a little camping theme.
And I made one special picture, just for Henry. I love having some fun and doing some fairytale like pictures from time to time. It gives me a chance to play and do something more creative, and of course, totally captures the magic of childhood.
Happy First Birthday Henry!
