Elektra's first birthday

Nailini found me through another friend (and client) that is also stationed here at Fort Leonard Wood. We met up for coffee and talked about how her firstborn was about to turn one, and she wanted to take the leap to hire a professional photographer for the first time and capture the day and love their little family shares.

When I arrived, I was greeted by the sweetest itty bitty little girl dressed in a pink tutu. We played hide and seek while chatting with mom and dad, and then she really broke into giggles when Daddy came in to play. After a bit the balloons and cake were broken out- she might be tiny but she was not afraid of that cake!

How did you celebrate your little one's first birthday? I love how laid back and intimate this was, while still capturing the moments and personalities.  This sweet, smart little girl is going to go so far in life and one day will look back on her very first birthday cake smash and see how loved she is!
