The Cherry Blossom trees are not in full bloom forever, but in the later stages, they leave a beautiful carpet of pink petals on the ground.
The Beaumont family celebrated their daughter’s FIRST birthday by taking photos together. She even wore the cutest white dress with cherry blossoms on it! Can I get that in my size?

I can’t believe Evelyn is ONE! Not only did I get to celebrate with her, but she brought all her friends with her too! Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet were all there, but Evelyn wasn’t sharing the cake. She got to smash and eat it all on her own.
I remember taking her pretty mama’s maternity photos AND again when Evelyn was a little newborn. I’m so lucky to see her grow into a sweet little girl. Now she’s sporting flower crowns and pigtails. Seriously, where has time gone??

There certainly are perks to having a spring birthday, one of which is the ability to take first birthday photos outside! Max brought his family along for photos, which means I got to see all of them twice this year! Can you believe I’ve photographed this crew since big sister was born?
Happy happy birthday to this sweet little guy! He came to visit me for his first birthday milestone updates. He is crawling, pulling to standing, and willing to push chairs around. He gave me a few smiles that he and his mama had to work for. He absolutely loved that he had balloons at his session, was intrigued by his cupcake, made a really nice mess, and most of all, really loved his splash time at the end of the session.
This sweet little sunflower came back to visit me for her first birthday photos! She makes the sweetest little conversational baby sounds and loved pointing at everything in the studio. She gave us some quick smiles mixed in with lots of serious faces.
Mama requested a sunflower session because her baby shower was sunflower themed. This was so much fun to create! Mama also had a few other requests for her session that we certainly worked in, but I will leave it to her to share the rest!
I had someone seriously cute visit the studio last weekend. I first photographed Lia as a newborn and just loved seeing this cutie again a year later.
Having a multi cultural family myself, I absolutely love to incorporate important cultural traditions into photo sessions. Lia’s mama is Korean and for Lia’s birthday (or doljanchi), grandma gifted her a beautiful traditional dress called a Hanbok. Lia’s parents asked that we take photos in her hanbok. We also documented her Doljabi selection. A Doljabi is a korean ceremony where items symbolizing potential future professions are put on a table or tray in front of the child. The item the child chooses foretells his or her future. Lia chose a stethoscope so it looks like we have a future doctor or nurse on our hands!
Lia’s parents also wanted to incorporate the American tradition of a cake smash. Her momma made a beautiful cake, topped with flowers and Lia happily dug in!

I have had the pleasure of photographing this little lady and her family since her mama was pregnant with her. Take a look at her baby plan recap and don’t miss the most recent photos from her first birthday session too.
Her big brothers spent some time of their family maternity session exploring the woods and searching for frogs.
The whole family also visited the studio for Newborn + Family photos after Gwen was born. Mama asked me to stack her siblings, so we did!
Little Ms. Cupcake also came to see me for her 6 month sitter milestone as well as holiday photos.
One baby sometimes isn’t enough and her relatives were in town for the Thanksgiving holiday so they came along for an extended family session too!
Gwen was crawling at 9 months, and standing assisted, mama was sure to document those milestones!
The real reason you’re here though is because Gwen turned ONE! She came in for her 12 month photos and has grown from standing assisted to assisted walking. This little lady wanted to push mini chairs and stools all over the studio for her session! Her mama is a baker and brought along a smash cake as well as an adorable cupcake banner made by Creigh-ations. She knew what to do with her cake too and was happy to have it all to herself!
