Today’s blog features one of my favorite sessions to date, the fabulous first birthday session for Declan. Let us start with how much I adore the name Declan, so stinkin’ adorable. A very fitting name for such a handsome little boy. Since we have had Declan’s session on the books I have been anticipating it, I knew that his mother’s ideas would be perfect to create & photograph! Although the day brought us a little bit of extra wind their house made for a perfect location.
We started in his adorable nursery. What is not to love about a crib filled to the brim with balloons and a perfect comb over? Hello big gorgeous blue eyes…
I almost forgot that he had a bowtie, he is just the cutest…
A little play time with Mom and Dad keeps everyone happy…
Now added to the session was the BIGGEST party balloon I have ever laid eyes on. Pictures do not do this thing justice, it was HUGE! I have always wanted a giant giant balloon for a session, now I know that big balloons bring serious static hair.
“Hey, I hate this grass stuff! Pick me up!”
I always try to encourage the parents to jump in the pictures when I am photographing their little ones. Typically Mom is the one taking most of the day-to-day photos and it is nice being able to look back on the moments with the whole family that go too fast.
Now for the really important part, the cake!
What is a cake smash without a nice warm bubble bath?
Thank you both again for allowing me into your home and documenting a special time in your lives. You have an adorable little boy on your hands and the love you both have for him is apparent within in seconds of meeting you. May the next year of little Declan’s life be just as much fun as his first!
