How stinking cute are Henry’s baby portraits? I love baby photography sessions and I absolutely adore this little guy. I am beyond excited to share these images I took of Henry and his parents at Ida Lee Recreation Park in Leesburg, Virginia last week.
When Henry’s mom, Katja, and I were discussing ideas for the session, I told her about the cute teepee that I had recently purchased at Sugar Shacks Teepees. I envisioned Henry’s one year portraits and cake smash session using this adorable prop. Katja loved the idea as well. With both parents working, I met the three of them on Tuesday in the late afternoon. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better time and better day. With temperatures in the high 80’s and the gorgeous, golden evening light the stage was set for a wonderful baby-and family photography session. We started by changing Henry into an outfit that I brought which I like to use for cake smash sessions. He warmed up to me quickly, giving me loads of smiles. Once I grabbed a few shots of Henry in front of the teepee, I decided to also make use of the lovely rustic wagon I brought. You should see my garage. The props just keep piling up. How could they not?😝 Call me a prop addict, ha! Once I finished capturing Henry’s portraits, we got the cake out for some candid cake smash moments. Katja made the cake. I think she did pretty good job. Henry, though, seemed skeptical. As a matter of fact, he did not like the cake smash idea at all. Seriously? Another baby who doesn’t like smashing a cake? What’s up with that? Dear parents, if you think your baby will love the idea of smashing a cake, please call meeeeeee!😂 I loved capturing the moments toward the end of their session. Henry was tired and in need of some mommy snuggles. Too cute.
Dear Katja, Brian and Henry, thank you so much for letting me capture these amazing memories for you. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect family.😍
