The week following my daughter’s first birthday party, I was hired to photograph another 1 year old girl. I shot event photography at the party, and the next day they came for studio portraits of the birthday girl. As you can see, Aria was adorable. Her parents Donald and Katee were wonderful to work with, and very cool people.
The party was great. The hosts were very welcoming, and their family and friends were all very friendly. From the photographer perspective, they had beautiful wood floors, and a big glass door which made for nice soft light when the kiddos ventured in front of if.
The picture above is one of my favorite from the party. Not that it is an amazing composition, but that it captured the essence of the moment. Everyone was trying to keep Aria on track with the opening of the presents, but she had her own plans.
The photo shoot the next day went perfectly. Aria did need a few breaks, but that gave her and Leyla a chance to play. They were so cute together, and of course I had to capture that too!
