The gardens are a beautiful place to celebrate turning one and I was thrilled to be there to photograph this little girl at a special session amongst the flowers. A first birthday session is a chance to celebrate and capture all of the changes and growth baby has experienced over that first incredible year. 

I have had the joy of watching Miss E grow behind my camera since her newborn session a year ago so it was a special treat to be there to photograph her one year old milestone session. She showed off to me and my camera all of her new skills; she’s not only on the go with crawling but she’s also standing up on her own so I don’t think it will be much longer until she’s off running. 

It’s a fun tradition to include a cake as a part of a first birthday session so for baby E’s final set of photos at her session, her parents brought out a beautiful blue cake for her. We never know just how a baby will react to their cake as some babies are a little unsure of what to make of being given a full cake to themselves but this little one knew from the start that this was going to be a great treat. She not only tasted her cake but she enjoyed it to the max! The facial expressions she made as she tasted and then devoured her cake are priceless. After such a messy treat a warm tub to splash around was the perfect ending to our session.
