Celebrating a birthday is a pretty big deal specially if its your very first. Jake and Holly celebrated little Grace Elliana’s first birthday the day before our session so this lucky little girl got to have cake twice in one weekend. I love to include some lifestyle family portraits in any session I do because well I know how it is to always be behind the camera which means I’m never in the picture. So whether its mommy or daddy who is the designated family photographer, always making sure to include everyone in a few shots together. The day was beautiful but a bit chilly so we stepped outside in their front yard for just a few minutes and then moved inside to smash the sprinkle covered cake! Little Grace Elliana was a bit more interested in the balloons to begin with but soon discovered the sprinkles, a girl after my own heart. Happy birthday little Grace!
