Happy 1st Birthday handsome Duke!
Not all 1st birthday sessions are cake smashes. Sometimes we venture on location to celebrate life as a family, and the way things are now with a toddler. And just like a cake smash, laughter and fun drive the session sprinkled with lots of love and bittersweet emotions that time has flown by so fast.
I remember his newborn session like it was yesterday…he was sooooo tiny and fit right into his dad’s hands. He slept peacefully through his entire session and we took the most angelic images of him. A couple of his newborn photos are featured on the walls of Val Verde Regional Medical Center’s Women’s Center.
Fast forward a year later, and he’s not so tiny anymore! As a matter of fact, he ran the show. His baby features were still there, but barely there. Part of the fun of these first birthday sessions is looking for those hints of the baby that I photographer almost one year prior. They melted away to reveal this toddler – a toddler with a HUGE smile and love for his momma and dad. Emphasis on momma. He’s 100% momma’s little boy.
While dad tossed him in the air, mom enjoyed all the cuddles she could with her growing little man. She made the “ONE” letters for his session, and he didn’t hesitate to show them off (or try to eat them!). And how about his wardrobe! Duke can sport a bowtie and suspenders like a pro. So dapper and handsome!
