First Birthday Pictures!: At home - Allentown, PA

Being asked to take Rylan's first birthday pictures at home was such a pleasure! I love meeting new clients, no matter where they live or why they want pictures, but first birthday pictures are extra special. Being a mama myself, I can completely relate to all of the emotions we feel as we see our little bundle turning one. Where did the past 12 months go?! Rylan's theme was "little man" so his mama dressed him up in an adorable blazer and had the ever trendy mustache in his theme... oh how I love the mustache trend!

Taking pictures for this family was like taking pictures for friends. I had never met them before and by the end of the session there were hugs and even some hand me down left over diapers to use for my new little guy. I drive home from sessions like this one with a smile on my face (well, every session leaves a smile on my face, who am I kidding here). I just love my job!

One of the best parts about this session was Jaime's request for a cake smash collage. I've had these awesome templates, but have never been pushed to figure out how to use them in photoshop. Though it was a bit of a challenge for me to do this, it was a challenge I was so happy to have... I can now offer these awesome cake smash collages for other first birthday sessions!

Oh, and of course we can't forget about the family pup!!

It was a pleasure, Sandersons!!
