William’s 4th Birthday Portraits

William has been coming to see me since he was a little baby barely able to sit up on his own. Every year for his birthday photos his mom chooses an outfit for him, and he chooses one or two of his own. I think it’s so sweet that his parents let him choose something that makes him happy! Capturing the joy on his face when he dresses in his “outfit” (okay, it’s always a costume!) makes me laugh and smile right along with him. This year I got to do his 4th birthday portraits and he had big plans!

This year we incorporated a couple of vintage toys in his birthday portraits. An old tricycle, and a vintage scooter were the perfect props for him.

We also used a fun antique ladder, at William’s request and a white chair. Four year old boy in a white and blue checked shirt sitting on a vintage white ladder.

My favorite part of William’s session was when he brought out his costumes. He really wanted a Star Wars themed photo, so we used a spaceship corridor backdrop. William had fun being silly with a light saber. William’s mom tells me he’s been trying to convince his Nana that she needs one of his Star Wars photos!

Our final set for Willam’s 4th birthday portraits featured a flight suit, and a space themed backdrop. William looked so cute all dressed up, and he even pretended to fly a spaceship. It has been so fun watching William grow up!

Candy Themed Cake Smash

Over the course of the past year I’ve had the pleasure of watching Jemma grow up. She has always been a bit fiesty with me, but I’ve loved watching that part of her personality develop.

Jemma first came to me for her newborn photos; then came again at 4 months, and 8 months. I also saw her for a special session with her mommy last summer. Like every birthday session for babies who’ve been with me since their newborn days, Jemma’s cake smash was a little bit bittersweet.

The cake smash signaled the end of our every four month get togethers, but boy was the cake smash itself sweet! Jemma’s parents chose a candy themed cake smash and requested soft pinks and creams. The backdrop for Jemma’s cake smash was custom designed to match the one in sample images her mom sent me. Wooden crates, lots of candy, marshmallows, and paper pompoms rounded out the set.  Aileen’s Cake Decor designed Jemma’s cake to look like a melting ice cream cone, with lots of sprinkles too.

Before the cake smash, we did Jemma’s first birthday portraits. The pink backdrop was almost perfect with Jemma’s beautiful eyes!
