When Kora’s family reached out to me about photographing her first birthday, they mentioned that they wanted to work with me to create really beautiful and classic portraits (instead of a cake smash). I was ALL about it! There’s something really special about being able to create portraits that you know will become heirloom products and gifts for a family.
From the start, Kora’s grandfather was involved in the process - and it was great! It made everything even more special for her and the family. On the day of the shoot, we focused on minimal props but the ones we did use created a beautiful classic atmosphere for Kora. And can we talk about how cute she looks in that gorgeous floral headpiece?!!? I love when I get to pull that out in the studio!! Kora had some beautiful eyes - and they were so fun to photograph. She was such a happy baby for us and we had a great time together.
First birthdays don’t have to always be about cake smashes. They’re not for everyone and that’s okay! No matter what your vision is for capturing your little one’s big milestones, we can design a session for you. Your little one should be celebrated! Let’s create some memories for your family next!
