This summer has nearly whizzed by and I didn't want it to end without sharing some special first birthday moments that I had the pleasure of capturing!
My time with Riaan and his family was such a joy! Friends and family had traveled from all over to help celebrate this adorable birthday boy! It was evident how very loved this little one is! <3
Before the party began, we were able to document all his wonderful family with a few portraits of each family member with the birthday boy- aunts, grandparents, great uncles - everyone had their time to cuddle!
Mom and dad had a few quiet minutes with Riaan (and their pup!) , and OF COURSE, our favorite new one year old had his own little portrait session!
It was such an honor (and truly so much fun!) to capture all the laughter, music, details, and cake smashes that made this day so special!
Happy, happy birthday to the cutest first birthday boy around!!
Looking for a portrait photographer in the Victor, NY area to capture the sweet moments and special details of your little one's birthday party? I'm always excited to help make this their BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!! :) Give me a shout! :)
Normally a Rochester area family photographer, it’s so exciting when I get to ‘come home’ to New Jersey and photograph in fresh (yet very familiar!) settings. The park this sweet family was photographed in was actually my neighborhood playground! I love that I was able to photograph my friend’s sweet girls where I used to play as a kiddo. I’m fairly certain I was never dressed as preciously as this duo was, though! It’s no secret this precious family is one of my favorites to photograph. Without getting too mushy (you know I’m notorious!)- I’ll just say they’re the real deal: fun, genuine, kind and loving. A wonderful little family <3
After their family session, mom requested a special first birthday session for Katherine. She is seriously SUCH a doll! Happy and smiley during both sessions. She never fussed once. What a beautiful little sweetheart! She’s a keeper for sure! ;)
If you are looking for a New Jersey family session or a lifestyle newborn session, I may be able to accommodate you! I make several trips down to North Jersey throughout the year and would LOVE to help tell your story!
Send me a message and let’s chat!
