Lilly began her session by playing on her adorable (and insanely soft!) rocking horse...
It didn't take her long to realize she had something on her head. Not being a fan of them, Lilly continued to remove her soft pink headband, making for some sweet, angelic photos...
Lilly loves to play with her big brother, she loves music and she can eat almost as much as a grown up...
She gives the biggest and best koala bear hugs and loud smacking kisses...
She has brought so much love and happiness into her family and they thank god everyday for their little Angel.
After spending some time playing outside, Lilly wanted to show me her gorgeous red piano! The songs she played were harmonious...
And then it was time for cake... mmmmmmm
She can't get any cuter!!!!
Lilly already knows, sharing is caring...
"Oh, I have to stop eating this now?..."
As the festivities and devouring came to an end, it was time to clean up and part ways with my playdate.
In order to make this special morning happen, Samantha, Lilly's mom put in the effort to make it a fun time. It doesn't have to be expensive to capture cute photos. You can find balloons at lots of places, but I've linked the Dollar Tree below because they offer different colors for an affordable price! The cake was relatively small which is good because, well... Lilly is one and a one year old probably shouldn't consume an enormous cake. Adults on the other hand... ;) Samantha also found the Pottery Barn rocking horse at a consignment shop and purchased it for a fraction of the price had she bought it brand new. The party hat was found in Florida at a random little place in the middle of nowhere. Below is a link to a similar party hat found on Etsy.
I am absolutely obsessed with photographing one year portraits and ending with something deliciously messy like the smash cake! To Samantha, thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into making Lilly's one year session a blast!!!!!
