Birthday cake, balloons, gifts that mom can wrap right in front of you and you have no clue, family and friends all coming in to celebrate...... and you have no idea what is going on or why everyone is so excited, but no doubt there will be photos for you too look back on!! Thats what first birthday's are made of!
Little miss Kenzie turns one this month and I have had the pleasure of not only taking her first birthday photos but also her newborn photos, four months old and 8 month old old photos. I was also blessed to be able to do the same for her older brother Palmer (isn't that the cutest name ever!!).
For this session we went to an open field in Davidson, NC and had the looming threat of thunderstorms just north of us. As always, the Hague's were ready early for their session and when I saw the storm pop up I was happy to hear that they were ready to go so we could start early! We got some great family shoots, some of Kenzie and Palmer and then of Kenzie with a cute little cake her mom picked up from Publix. After Kenzie got a little time with the cake by herself, Palmer got to come over and try some cake too and even try to feed his little sister some icing!
In perfect timing, once we got all packed up (or cleaned up in Kenzie's case) I got the first sprinkles on my windshield and had them all the way home. I am so thankful we were able to get this session done and the Hague's will have their little girls photos before her first birthday!
I have to say, I am sad I won't be seeing this sweet family every 3-4 months to capture those first year moments but I will be fun to see how much they grow as I hope to continue to photograph their family at least once a year!! They are the sweetest kids, the most beautiful blue eyes and dark long eyelashes and have amazing laid back parents that are such a joy to work with.
Thank you Hague Family for trusting me to capture the first years of both Palmer and Kenzie!
