I wasn’t able to take newborn pictures of Baby J because I was almost due with my own little one, but I was happy to see him for his first birthday pictures! What a cutie!
It was fun to see this family again! I am amazed at this mama of 3 (the oldest is only 3 years old!). She had him on Christmas day (surprise!) so it was fun to do this little Christmas picture for her. I photographed their middle child when he was born a year and a half ago, and I just can’t believe how fast babies grow into toddlers. Here are a few of my favorites!
You honestly never know what you’re going to get when a baby is given free reign over the demolition of his birthday cake. Some babies are very careful, only using one finger to move frosting from the cake to their mouths. Others cry, wondering why you are wanting them to eat cake. Some are too distracted by balloons or other decorations to really give the cake more than a few moments of their attention. But not baby Dean! He was the happiest, messiest, craziest, funniest cake smasher I’ve ever had in my studio. He was like a puppy digging a hole in the dirt! I’m pretty sure I’m going to find cake crumbs everywhere for a while. His parents and I were laughing so hard! Here are just a few images showing the progression of destruction.
