1st Birthday Smash Cake Session

A week before this little girl turned a year old we met up for a delicious photo shoot. She was apparently not feeling very well going into this day and even had a runny nose (poor girl!). Her mood was very unsettle, making a few tears to start out the shoot but a little patience and lots of sugar changed this girls frown upside down! All of the lovely sunshine sure helped as well. Lucilla enjoyed herself some frosting but never really dug into the cake like I wish I was haha. Her fluffy red tutu, golden bow head band and white frosted cheeks sure made her blue eyes pop and turned into some of the cutest photos I have ever seen!

Anna did my youngest 1 year photos and my little one was a butt to put nicely, but Anna never missed a beat. She sat with her, took her time and made it fun by the end my grump was laughing. Her passion for photography shows in the photos I got back, my husband and I were beyond thankful for these photos that I’ll have when she is not so little anymore. Thank you doesn’t cover it.
