One of my absolute favorite aspects about a session is working with the family to create their idea of perfection. When a session is booked, we start off by talking about themes and coloring of the session. Sometimes momma chooses to coordinate the session to the 1st Birthday Party and sometimes we go away from party colors and dream up a magical vision to capture sweet photos to remember forever.
I met this sweet family during LMN Photography's Easter Mini Session back in March. After planning the session and working each week to fine tune coloring, props, and studio set up, I was honored to have taken Bryleigh's photos. Not only is she so very loved by her family, she is smart, beautiful, silly, sweet, and a happy little babe. Her momma and daddy are so very blessed to be her parents. In the short time I have spent with her, I have grown to adore her as well.
For this session, Bryleigh's 1st birthday party theme was: You are My Sunshine. The perfection combination of colors; yellows, pinks, and turquoises to compliment the beautiful Bryleigh. In every Custom 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session, I create 3-4 different set ups to capture the beauty of the birthday boy/girl. Some have a few props, while others have a simple sunflower or single balloons. Bryleigh's family chose the Custom Cake Smash Session: Bows and Ties which includes BOTH an indoor studio session and outdoor session. Both sessions include all unique styling, props, smash cakes, and studio set ups.
Happy Birthday precious angel!
"Every child is a different kind of flower and all together make this world a beautiful garden." Bryleigh is a sunflower. Her light shines bright wherever she may be.
In walking to the vintage grey chair adorned with pink and white balloons, I had Bryleigh sit in the tall grass to watch Daddy being silly with the balloons. Some of the most beautiful moment during a session come when the child is left to explore their little world around them.
One of my most favorite spots here in this Cypress, TX outdoor location is the tree lined drive with gorgeous light. I try to use this spot every session because it gives the family such stunning portraits of their child. The colors really pop from the trees, sunset, and grass.
The last set up I created was a whimsical and airy tulle canopy surrounded by balloons and decorative pillows. Bryleigh had a blast under the canopy even stopping to rest her sweet little head on the yellow chevron pillow.
And of course, the S-M-A-S-H C-A-K-E!! There really is nothing better than watching a little one smash into a delicious, sugary cake for ((sometimes)) the first time. There is something so peaceful, calming, and tranquil that washes over me overtime I capture these moments as the sun in setting in the lush woods. These photos make for beautiful decorations at your 1st Birthday party as well. Everyone loves a sweet little face covered in frosting!
Thank you so much to Bryleigh's Family for sharing this milestone with me. This is one of those sessions as a photographer that I will remember for many years to come. I enjoyed the last few months planning and loving on you all! Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Baby Girl!!
