I love milestone sessions! Not only do I get to hang out with wee babes just that little bit more before they grow up, I get to watch and document them as they do it!
Little Baby Leo came with his entire family and entourage for his 100 Days Milestone Session and it was so nice to be able to see his loved ones rally around him to celebrate this moment in his life. 100 Days is an important milestone in the Chinese culture as it represents the wish that the baby will live 100 years and reaches longevity, and it was such an honour to be able to capture this special day for this wonderful family!
The weather has been so weird lately. Raining in the morning and nice and sunny in the afternoon. It’s nice that things are turning nicer by the end of the day, but it makes it really hard to figure out if sessions should go ahead or not!
That being said, Little Elek made my life super easy during his session, as not only was he super adorable, but he was also pretty darn patient for a one-year old!
When we were planning this session Mariah + I were trying to come up with a location where we could do both Family photos and Little Milo’s cake smash photos all while not having either of her boys get too distracted by the surroundings. And I have come to realize that this is actually a pretty tricky task. Anything that would be fun for candid family photos later on in a session, would likely result in distraught kiddos before that point. Luckily though, they still had access to the unbelievably gorgeous private farm that we used for Milo’s newborn session last year.
How on earth has an entire year already passed since Baby Alice first came into the studio?! I mean, it literally feels like her newborn session was yesterday and somehow, she has already been promoted from Baby Alice to Little Alice because she is one year old and just joined me for her milestone and cake smash session!
I think that’s something I need to get used to with the studio being open for over two years now, just that babies don’t stay babies for long and they get so big so fast!
Little Ella showed up for her session a little sleepy, but somehow it still only took about 2 minutes before she was showing off those beautiful smile and her amazing walking skills! The latter of course meant that both myself and her parents spent that majority of the session catching her and putting her back in front of the background, but hey, that’s what cake smash sessions are all about!
