I know I say this every time, but I can’t believe that Clara is a year old. It doesn’t seem like a whole year since I photographed her as a newborn, smiley with a full head of hair. Now she has a couple of teeth, is about to start walking any moment, and has a huge personality. I hope to get to photograph this family every year as she keeps growing up (not too fast please!)
You never know how a cake smash is going to go–sometimes babies are actually not into the sweetness or messy feeling of the frosting all over them. I can’t say I blame them there. But Clara killed it, she didn’t let a little light rain ruin this sugar marathon. I MIGHT have tasted a little frosting in the “cleaning up process” as well. Hey there, Sweet Bakery, I will be coming for cupcakes!
This was my first time at my new favorite family photo spot, a little park of a quiet-ish road in Newton. We had the place to ourselves and found a perfectly blooming rhododendron to park ourselves in front of, and then an amazing view of the trees on a little path hidden in the back of the park. This park is a hidden gem!
I hope you enjoy the photos from this family session, let me know what you think in the comments!
