I couldn’t wait for this little one’s first birthday session! I first met this wonderful family at Miss A’s newborn session last Spring and knew her 1st birthday session would be just as much fun.

A first birthday session is a great opportunity to focus on all of the important details of your baby at one year of age: their different facial expressions; their features; their developing personality and interests; and also their interactions with their parents. A lot happens in just one year so it’s incredible to see just who they’ve become already!

We kept the session bright and reminiscent of Spring, perfect for a Springtime baby like Miss A. Her mom found an adorable floral dress for her birthday photos, it was the perfect inspiration for styling her session!

Because all babies are different a first birthday session can look quite different from baby to baby. For little Miss A’s session her mom knew she would have a great time playing in the bath so opted to have a pretty milk bath as a part of her session. She definitely loved her bath and we got so many great smiles from her as she played and splashed. To make it even more all about Miss A we included strawberries as a part of her bath. Not only are berries pretty but they’re also a favourite treat! Happy birthday sweetie!
