I haven’t seen Avery since she was a newborn, so I was super excited to photograph her first birthday. We started with a tiny meltdown as soon as she arrived to the studio, so I was semi nervous! Distracting her with toys and “little baby bum” on my phone (on repeat, mind you) seemed to do the trick…. plus all of the BALLOONS as her session props.
We went with a rainbow theme, so I went straight to my rainbow drop (which is one of my favorites), a variety of colored balloons, and a cake topped with rainbow sprinkles (which was requested by mom).
It was seriously such a joy watching Avery ham it up once she was finally comfortable. She had us all laughing, and even had momma in tears.
Happy birthday, sweet girl! You are so loved.
