Colette's cake smash was the very first session in my new studio space, in our new home in Strasburg, yay! When I talked to Erica and Erick about the session, they were hoping for a couple quick family shots. This is not something that we normally do during our one year sessions, but my new backyard has a wall of Arborvitae trees that, as it turns out, makes a nice backdrop! So I had said, as long as the weather is okay, I'd be happy to do a couple family shots real quick! All worked out and we were able to start with these, I love this sweet family!
We then moved inside and started on Colette's portraits! How cute is this girl?!
Several times throughout the session, she made this face and I could not stop laughing. She is so adorable, I love this shot!
Colette was not so sure about this flower bonnet, but I think it's adorable, so I had to include a couple shots in their gallery with it!
Almost cake time!
Having a little bit of a dance background myself, I was super excited when Erica told me that Colette's birthday party theme was ballet! I had a lot of fun putting this set up together.
There's that face again! <3
Erica and Erick, thank you again for the pleasure of photographing your little girl (and the two of you!). Colette is an absolute joy and we had so much fun with the three of you. I hope that you love your images, it was an honor to be a part of such a precious milestone. We hope to see you guys again in the future!
