New Jersey Family Photographer | 1 year | Bailey

Family

If there is ever a question about whether or not you should do a cake smash for your child’s first birthday, the answer is a resounding yes!  But I’ll get to that soon.

First, let me show you some RIDICULOUSLY cute pictures of little one year old Bailey and her fabulous parents, Courtney and Ryan.  We met at Strawbridge Park where I first met Ryan for their engagement session about 3.5 years earlier.

It was pretty neat to be there with them as a family.

Bailey is a doll with such gorgeous eyes and always with a coordinating bow.  Always.

Did I forget to mention that Courtney was 7? 8? Months pregnant with Miles at the time and was running around with us like a total rockstar.  She is the kind of mom I aspire to be: totally positive, energetic, cool headed, and look fabulous doing it.  #jealousymuch?

So then we did a costume change into a tutu (which Courtney made).   I loved these Kate Spade glitter heels when Courtney wore them for her wedding and love them for this little princess.

Ryan is generally a pretty cool as a cucumber guy but his expressions with his little girl are priceless!

But on to the cake smash with a nautical birthday smash cake (which Courtney made).

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Christie
Christie and Colin needed some pictures with their belly and city before moving back to North Carolina.  They grabbed their 12 year old St. Bernard, Daphne, and showed me a glorious part of the Wissahickon that I had never seen before.  (I’ve tried to find it again and can’t!) Christie got the look down 100%.  The textures and colors were perfection for the turning leaves and organic surroundings.  The faux (?) fur, knee high boots, dangly necklaces, and tight army green dress looked like something put together by some fashion blogger, not a nurse!  So natural and chic! They wanted this area memorialized for pictures as a walk t ...
