Sometimes, you just need a delicious donut! Some weekends just call for a warm, fresh donut, and a glass of crisp cold milk. That’s where the inspiration came from for this pastry-inspired session with two year old Addilyn. We set up vintage style milk crates and added a sparkly “two” to mark the occasion, and this little girl loved every minute. Of course, her donuts needed plenty of sprinkles. Mom is expecting her second child, so after we did her maternity photos, we celebrated this very special birthday. Mom says, “Our Addilyn Kate is full of personality. She really loves all of her babies, and being a ‘mama’ to them, and she also loves trucks and cars. Her favorite television shows are Peppa Pig and Bubble Guppies. She just started Mother’s Day out at St. Paul’s and loves playing with her friends and tells us she is learning to share! She seriously is the happiest little person. It’s been so rewarding as parents seeing her grow as a very happy and healthy 2 year old who loves playing with others and taking care of her own babies. She’s going to be the best big sis to her little brother, who will be arriving any day now!”
A birthday is just one reason to have a portrait session done! I am in favor of doing several photoshoots a year when your children are little, because they change so incredibly fast. You can blink and miss the best moments of your life, and photoshoots are a way to capture a few of those moments for the years to come. As a mom and grandmother myself, I can attest to the way that photos can bring back such incredible memories, and I’d encourage you to book today. Our baby plan or milestone sessions are the perfect way to commemorate that first year of your baby’s life!
