What an emotional and exciting time for a momma to be celebrating her little babe turning ONE! This time, it was THIS momma experiencing all of these emotions. On Saturday, Niko Christopher Ortiz, turned ONE!
How does a year pass us by so quickly? Was it really 365 days ago that I was in labor with my miracle baby I prayed for, for almost 3 years? Was it this same time last year that my heart and family felt complete and such an abundance of joy seeing my daughter and son meet their baby brother for the first time?
Niko's theme for his party was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It's been so much fun designing his session because all the colors of the rainbow are featured in this book by Eric Carle. This was perfect for Niko because he is such bright and happy baby. He smiles at anything and anyone he sees. He laughs and giggles at his puppies and kitties. He is as bright and wonderful as each beautiful color in the rainbow!
The session was outdoor during Golden Hour here in Cypress, TX. LMN Photography has a signature Cake Smash set up with the vintage wood highchair, a custom made high chair banner, dark woodsy backdrop, and dreamy bokeh peeking through the trees. I have been waiting to capture Niko's smash cake session so that I could create these images to put on canvas or large framed prints for our home. This special milestone in our family's life will be remember forever through these photos.
I hope you enjoy this session as it is so very dear to my heart. I am proud and blessed that I have the opportunity to raise this sweet boy and be his momma!
In every session, I love to use balloons in at least one set-up of the session. The reasoning behind this is because, balloons are silly. Balloons are funny. Balloons are an easy attention grabber for the child to play with, interact with family, and allows mom and dad to sit back and just watch their child be silly on their own. THESE are the best moments. Candid, raw, and real moments!
Aren't all these colors B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L?? The little chunky monkey is handsome too! Just look at him relaxin' in this vintage white rocker!
My favorite part as a photographer, CAKE SMASH! Best of both worlds during this session, I got to be photographer AND momma. I caught myself just keeping the camera at my side for a few minutes at a time, just embracing this little angel. Watching him smash his fists into the sugar and moist cake, shove it into his face and then smear all over his face was so much fun for me!
I honestly cannot believe that my little Niko is O-N-E!! He is the sweetest, happiest, most lovable little bug! I am so blessed that I was chosen to be his momma and that he was placed into our family. My heart is so full of love and excitement to watch this little man grow each day!
