I got a Facebook message from someone I went to school with in California. We’ve known each other for a long time, but I was surprised when, shortly after, she told me about her son’s birthday, & then asked me to be the one to take his one year photos and their family photos. I’m all too happy to photograph a baby smashing cake all over his chubby little cheeks. But, like most babies I have photographed, Easton was not interested in a delectable cupcake from Gigi’s Cupcakes. Not interested turned out to be an understatement: he gagged when I put a little frosting in his mouth. Kid is nuts!
We hiked up on top of Jackass Hill Park in Littleton to a picturesque Colorado landscape. Rolling hills with tall grasses, mountains, a lake running through the valley below, and a beautiful Colorado sunset. This is my favorite time of year! Thank you Megan for allowing me the opportunity to photography your little family. Happy 1st Birthday, Easton!
This girl. Oooh, does she make me work for a smile. The first time I met Addison, her mama asked me to photograph her family about 6 months ago. Girlfriend was not having it. In one hour, we managed 1 photo with a smile. She clearly hates paparazzi. Flash forward to her 1 year birthday, she was just as stingy as before! We trekked out in the cold to The Poudre River Trail in Greeley, Colorado for this little one’s cake smash photos. Her mom and I had a blast, laughing the entire time at Addison’s many expressions. It’s fun sessions like these that make being a children’s photographer so enjoyable!
