Connie and I have been full circle together. I was there for sweet Allie’s first breaths and her newborn session. We finished the year out by doing a sweet one year cake smash session for Allie.
The thing about one year olds is that they are right in the middle of the separation anxiety/stranger danger stage. Allie was not having it with me at all for the first portion of the session.
Which was fine by me since I had big sister Abby to play with for just a bit. Abby absolutely adores me. Every time we run into each other at church or out and about, I get all kinds of hugs and delighted stories. Abby always makes my day when that happens.
Allie still wanted to the comfort of mama for a few more minutes so I shot was was probably my favorite set of images from this session of mama and her girls.
Then we had daddy jump in for a few.
And we finally got a happy image of sweet Allie (thank you pretzel)!
By that time Allie was pretty hungry… and there’s nothing more enticing to a little one than a big plate of a brand new food. Allie soon forgot all about me and dove right into her cake.
I love capturing the details of each little one’s foray into cake tasting. Her dirty tutu and her sweet little toes are memories I would want for myself.
Finally we finished the cake smash a with a bath as I always do. And clearly Allie was not happy about having to leave that yummy cake to mommy, sister, daddy, and I to finish off.
