Oh, beautiful Charlotte! Happy birthday, sweet girl! This morning I am very excited to blog your outdoor portrait session because you are just too precious. It was a joy having her in front of my camera because her little spirit kept a smile on my face.
For C's outdoor first year birthday photos, we began with a simple, rustic bucket. I really enjoy utilizing simple props because they lend a timeless and classic feel to the images. I like to think how these will grace your walls and how even 30 years from now your baby will be preserved. Her smile, her little lovie clutched in her small hands - these are the details you'll treasure.
Afterwards, we set up the cake! Dad is a chef and made an elegant cuisine just for his little girl. Who can resist a red velvet cake? Moreover, a local photographer friend of mine shared her vintage, wooden high chair and I was thrilled to use it! It looks beautiful in the morning light; the sunrise was perfect.
During the actual cake smash portion, I take a step back and let the little one figure things out. Sometimes the tyke loves the cake and other times the enjoy exploring, playing, and perhaps may even be a little cautious. No matter what, I'm there to document it all. I also enjoy including black and white edits in your final copies because sometimes a photo just beckons for the rich tones, contrast, and the fine art detail.
For her session, I had Mom and Dad meet me in Cypress, a suburb in Northwest Houston. This location is near 290 and Fry, so it has easy access and both beautiful morning and evening light. It's becoming one of my favorite locations because it has flexible parking, a spring time feel and is rural, which is lovely!
Of course, I had to ask Mom and Dad to jump in really quickly. This session took place early in the morning and we were not expecting to do family portraits, though I still like to offer a quick snap so you can be involved, too. :-)
I'd love to have your little one on my calendar! Here are some fun, nifty details to help you:
