I’ve had the pleasure of working with this sweet family since capturing their maternity photos for their oldest son! I think the biggest compliment in your photography career you can receive is working with a family throughout all of their milestones 🙂
Kenna’s 1st birthday portraits were a lot of fun to plan, I must admit planning the cake smash background is one of my favorite things to do! Kenna’s mom sent me images of the tutu she chose for the photos, I then went crazy at Michael’s crafts shopping for coordinating background items! The gorgeous ombre cake, which Kenna was not very excited about was from Whole Foods! You just never know if a baby is going to be interested in the cake or not. Either way, the images captured are still a fun moment to have documented!
I also worked closely with Kenna’s mom to create the fun hot air balloon theme which played into her 1st birthday party theme- “Oh the Place You Will Go” by the amazing Dr. Seuss. I just so happened to have a hot air balloon prop from a previous client, and was very excited to use it again!
We finished up with family photos and some very adorable images of Kenna’s older brother!! Many thanks to the Patel family for allowing me to capture their family through the years, it’s an honor and a privilege. And a very happy 1st birthday to miss Kenna!
