Keeping Things Sweet | Ivy's Cake Smash & One Year Session | Cypress Child Photographer

If you follow my blog, you may know I specialize in photographing babies, children, and families. However, I must concede my favorite subjects are always infants or toddlers. They’re sweet, inquisitive, and adorable. I enjoy planning their sessions, scouting locations, and the best part is photographing cuties like Miss Ivy!

I first “met” Ivy when I photographed her in her mama’s tummy. I was honored to document her newborn session, and here she is at one year old! Time flies. But it’s been a great year!

Ivy is a spunky little one with beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair. She is also full of joy and loves the camera! Perhaps my favorite aspect of photographing children is capturing eye contact and catching all their quirks from sweet smiles, mischievous grins, curious pouts, or perhaps clapping their hands.

 For Ivy’s one year session, Mom and I chose one of my favorite fields in Cypress, Texas. It’s located in the Northwest part of Houston where I reside so it’s a great spot for Tomball, Cypress or even Katy clients. It also has wonderful evening light – so warm and yummy! It’s important to me that each session, whether morning or evening, have the perfect natural light. I also like the sun to act as a guide and to light the session from behind.

Moreover, Mom and I had a wonderful time during this session! We did a few posed, formal family photos (which I will preview towards the end of this blog post). We also photographed Ivy with her older sister, Zoe for sibling shots. Finally, we finished with a cake smash! These are the best to photograph. I love when the little one realizes the cake is all for him or her…and that they get to eat it all! Ivy wasted no time digging into her cake!

Many thanks to the L family for having me photography Ivy’s one year session. It’s always a pleasure seeing you. I’m looking forward to attending Ivy’s birthday party and helping to celebrate her first year!
