A First Birthday Celebration {Alexandria, VA Baby Photographer}

The cutest, pouty-ist lips.

The thickest hair.

The most beautiful siblings and parents.

And the most anti-cake baby I've ever met.

This first birthday session was hilarious and adorable.  This sweet little man acted like we were torturing him to get him to try some cake.  His older siblings were happy to sample, but he was not having it.  However, he was still completely adorable and I loved working with his family!  I'm working on putting together my own baby's cake smash next week and wondering if she'll feel the same way!

A Double Cake Smash: Annandale, VA Twin Birthday Photographer.

I love cake smashes.  I love first birthdays.  And I love twins.

So when I got an inquiry incorporating all three of those things, plus some cute Dr. Seuss themed accessories, I knew I would have fun with this family.

As is typical, one of the boys thought the session was great fun and the other disagreed completely.  However, we laughed a lot and managed to get some great, cake-y shots of both twins.

Happy birthday F and M!

Happy Birthday: Arlington, VA First Birthday Session.

Baby H turned one just before her first birthday session.  She was an absolute doll and full of energy, ready to explore everything.  Despite the chilly morning, she was a trooper.  After some portraits, she was hilarious with her cupcake.  She repeatedly dipped the (unlit) candle into the frosting, she decorated her cupcake with some leaves, and she was as dainty and delicate as can be, despite wearing quite a bit of frosting.

Scheduling update: I have sessions available November 29, December 6, and December 12 and I just opened my calendar for 2016!  For more, check out my Facebook.

First Birthday Photos: Arlington, Va.

The weather on Tuesday featured record-breaking heat and warnings and watches for major storms.  I emailed Miss K's mommy and asked if she needed to reschedule, but she said that K would be just fine... and she was!  We had our photo session as the clouds rolled in and the temperatures began to cool slightly.  This little girl was a delight.  She wasn't sure what to think about the frosting on her cupcake but she was willing to try it all!

This little love is moving soon so her daddy can continue serving our country, but she didn't seem super thrilled about packing.
