Happy 1st Birthday Wendy/Asheville Baby Photographer

I have loved photographing this beautiful baby girl for her first year!  I love that I have a big canvas with her as a newborn hanging in my studio and then today, there she was walking around, laughing, eating cake and being so full of life!  Time sure does fly!  Her momma was so excited about this session and we spent a lot of time messaging each other with pictures and ideas.  I love how excited she gets for these sessions.  It makes it so much more fun!  Happy first birthday sweet little Wendy!!  See you again soon!

After cake bath!

Snuggle Bug/Asheville Baby Photographer

Yesterday I got to meet this super cool family and their sweet little boy who just turned one.  I knew I was going to like this mom when she sent me a funny text.  She was just as fun as I thought she would be and their little boy was so very sweet!  I loved watching him snuggle with his mom and dad and give them kisses over and over.  The amount of love that they have for each other is immeasurable.  It made me so anxious to get home and tell my own kids goodnight.  I really loved this session and this family and I’m so glad they chose me to do their baby boy’s first birthday pictures!

This sweet family has been in my thoughts since I did their session.  Shortly after this session, big sister lost her father.  I met this family over a year ago.  Seeing them go through something so difficult breaks my heart.  I wish I could just hug them all.  I wanted to share a few more of my favorites from their session.  This little boy was the happiest little thing and I loved that mom wanted to do a cake smash.  They are always one of my favorite things and always turn out so cute!  We used the crate that I had put him in as a newborn to put his cake on.  I love incorporating things that I used from newborn sessions in older sessions.  It’s just amazing how quickly they grow!

I can hardly believe that it was one year ago that I saw this little man.  He has grown into the happiest little thing.  He smiled through his entire session!!  And he loved his cake at the end.  I love cake smashes.  They are just such a fun way to end a one year session!  Happy first birthday you precious little boy!  (Notice how amazing the light is?  Summers make evening sessions hard because little ones usually go to bed around the time that we need to be doing our session.  But the light makes it all worth it in the photos!)

He was so in love with his sister.  All he had to do was look at her and he would start laughing and smiling!
