Since I've gotten to photograph some very cute little ones of late, I thought I would share the wealth here!
In this day and age, we celebrate a first birthday with the smashing of cake. These darlings are sometimes a bit confused at first, but mostly they quickly get the message and jump right in. With Olive below, you can see the progression from confused to smashing time, which I love! And in no time, she was mugging for the camera like a seasoned vet... and making sure mom was in on the fun.
Ellorie and I go way back. I photographed her when she was still in her mum's tummy (Her maternity shots! Her mom and dad were there, too. Click here to see the shoot. It's the very first one.) I also did her newborn shots (You can click here to see the shots). So basically Ellorie and I go back to the beginning of time (as far as she's concerned). :) Anyway... we can just say I was super happy to see her again and leave it at that. Below are some of the shots of my ol' pal Ellorie.
