Do you remember when I did Leeland’s newborn photo session just a short year ago? Well a year really can fly by and sweet Leeland is celebrating his first birthday. We decided to catch some beach scenery as well as using the little box that sweet newborn Leeland fit so neatly on. And some cake to smash is always a good way to end a first birthday session.
Balloons are a tricky prop to have outside due to the wind especially at the shorebut they sure do make for great photo shoot props. And we had them for such a short time. The wind this day was so strong that it carried the balloons away with a weighted clip and all. It was priceless. As always, we just went with it.
Leeland loved his one year old cake. He was being shy about it at first, just dipping his finger in the cake and licking it. But soon that turned to the fist and shoveling it in his mouth, leaving cake chunks on the feet.
Honestly, it was so great to be able to capture his first images as a newborn and then his first birthday pictures. Cake smashes are so much fun! I truly treasure being able to capture such events in a child’s life.
