First birthdays are an amazing milestone. One you just have to capture! It is a celebration for not only your little one that is turning one, but also as parents it is a celebration for making it through the ups and downs and that first year!! First birthday sessions can come in so many forms; birthday kiddo only, cake smash, fully family. The options are endless.
I first met this family one year ago for their maternity session right here at Mellon Park. Since then I have been honored to photograph so many amazing memories for them several times in the past year! We thought heading back Mellon Park, where it all started would be the perfect backdrop for their first birthday family session!! They were also so kind in being OK with my oldest coming along to help/observe. True story, as a photographer is is soooo easy to overextend yourself and I had realized that I had not been pulling my weight all week with my own kiddos!
Who would have thought that prom's would still be happening at the end of May! Well, they were and there were a lot of prom goers to work around but we made it happen. We bopped around Mellon Park and grabbed shots of not only the birthday boy but also the parents in several different locations. With just a quick look into their session I found some images that I just loved and I am excited to share them here with you!
