This little lady recently reached her first birthday, and will be celebrating with family and friends this coming weekend, so we met this past weekend for some first birthday portraits, including a cake smash and splash. We could not have asked for a lovelier evening. According to her parents, Bella is normally all smiles, but as it was later in the day and she was tired, she gave me a mix of more thoughtful expressions and smiles, which I just love. Another special element is that at Bella’s newborn and 6 month photo sessions, she wore the pearls and scarf, which belonged to her aunt, of blessed memory, and we incorporated them again for her first birthday. Can’t wait to celebrate with you and capture all the fun of your party this weekend!
