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).

It was so good Ellsworth got in on the action.  Um, perfection.

Don’t worry about missing this family too much.  You’ll see more when I share wee Miles’ newborn pictures!

Philadelphia Family Photographer | 1 Year | Clara
Charlotte arrived a few years back.  Now I’m not saying that she’s an obsolete model, but version 2.0 just celebrated her first birthday.  Feature-wise, Charlotte can walk and talk.  Clara, on the other hand, crawls and climbs like it’s her job and offers up the most adorable “Teek Ku” when you give her something. I may have already set plans in motion for her betrothal to my child.  It seems only right since they were born on the exact same day, only two hours apart. She's a classy little lady. We played with the whole family at their Graduate Hospital home.  Charlotte kindly let us use her bed for snuggles and tickles.  A fam ...

Montgomery County Maternity Photographer | Deena
Who is 8 months pregnant and still goes to the gym at least three times a week? Deena, that's who. That is why she still fits into her jeans (albeit unbuttoned), still wears her wedding ring, and still looks absolutely amazing. I'm in awe. I was so happy to spend some time with her and Drew at their house in Conshohocken to get maternity pictures and revel in this exciting time for them.This is their first little one. She's a girl due in early May and will be named Sadie Lola. I can't wait to meet her!Their purple nursery is pretty much all ready. It's jam packed with all kinds of stuff from friends and family - clothes from newborn to ...
