This was an extra special session for me.
This particular session marks my one year anniversary as a photographer, and I was able to celebrate it with a friend.
I was so fortunate to capture my dear friend Ramona’s pregnancy, Ella when she was a newborn, at 3 months and now at nearly one year. You can watch her grow over the last year here and here. We wanted to celebrate her first birthday with a cake smash. Ramona made an adorable polka dot garland along with a super cute and easy to make DIY tulle skirt. She picked up an extra large signature cupcake from Hey Cupcake in Sherwood Park and we were off. Sort of.
While Ella and the look of our birthday session were picture perfect, Ella wasn’t really “happy” about smashing her cake.
But she did something even more special…..
She took her very first steps on her own and we were able to catch it all!!
Here she is showing us how proud she is to be ONE!!
I think she has a future as a tiny ballerina
We were able to capture a “few” images of her enjoying her birthday cupcake.
It is amazing how much change can happen in one year. I am thrilled + honored to have been able to share a small part in Ella’s first year.
