This whole photography journey has lead me to some fantastic people. Some of whom have become the let’s text and email all day kind of friends. This momma is that exact friend. Oh, and it just so happens that she’s also a ridiculously talented photographer so when she asked me to photograph her little one’s first birthday, I didn’t even take a breath before I said yes.
We all know that 1st birthday parties are special and should be shared with family and friends and that’s exactly how this day was spent. And the day was all about the sweet little birthday girl, herself, Molly. The details were perfect. A December birthday party called for a wintry look and Elizabeth pulled it off without a hitch. The cake was gorgeous and I think I could have stared at it all day.
But the highlight of the day (for me) was sneaking up with Elizabeth into Molly’s room to wake her up from her nap. The photos I took of the two of them in the initial quiet moments were some of my favorites of the day. Because as a mom who is also a photographer, you just never ever have enough pictures with your children and taking these photos of Elizabeth and Molly were so incredibly important to me, but I knew they were especially important for Elizabeth. So I may have taken a few extra photos….
Ahhh- this family! I can’t even. Aren’t they ridiculously adorable? So. Much. Personality!!
