This birthday princess is one of the world's sweetest babies! We love her parents dearly and have built an amazing friendship with them over the past couple years while serving alongside each other at our local church. Chris is a talented artist and musician, and Bridgette is a beautiful vocalist, so I was elated to work with them as fellow creatives and as friends. Bridgette told me that she had a unicorn outfit for their birthday girl (which wouldn't surprise anyone who knows Bridgette), so this golden sunflower field was the perfect location for her magical 1st birthday photo session!
I love when our clients include their whole family in their child's birthday photo session! Since I enjoy capturing natural and candid memories, involving the family is one of my favorite ways to document the authentic joy and love in a baby or child's life. If you are like me as a parent, you probably take more snapshots of your babies by themselves than you have time to print, so I always encourage parents to take advantage the opportunity to join in on the memories!
Even when I'm photographing a family or birthday session, the wedding photographer in me eventually sneaks out! After the wedding, most married couples don't get professional pictures together as husband and wife after babies enter their family. While the birthday girl sat next to me watching her parents together, I had the privilege of capturing a glimpse of the love they share for each other. The romantic golden hour sky showed up at the perfect time!
Happy 1st birthday to our favorite unicorn princess! We are looking forward to watching you grow, but just don't do it to quickly, baby girl!
