Happy Birthday to the sweet baby Maylin, her first birthday is today! What a treat to photograph this little cutie. One of the best parts of creating a great photo shoot experience is in the personal details. Maylin's mama Miranda and poppa Brady pulled together some really adorable ideas, from using a quilt that was given to her when she was born, which has individual pieces of fabric from each of the ladies in Miranda's life, Maylin's Great Grandmother's chair, the balloons, ruffled outfits, and of course the sparkle headband and tutu. There were actually a couple unicorns running around too but they requested all the photo attention be directed to the birthday girl ;) Below are some of my favorites...Enjoy!
I love the balancing act of a baby learning to walk...makes me just melt, the arms out, the little feet, and envisioning all the places she will go!
Does it get any cuter? I mean, seriously.
Trying to make a 1 year old smile for a camera really wears them out... if it wears adults out, it must be exhausting for a little mini! There's a moment when Maylin just really let us know that she was done, and when she found the comfort on Dad's shoulders and in Mom's arms, those were some of the most authentic and sweet images of all. I just adore these next two...
Happy Birthday little Maylin and congratulations to Brady and Miranda for your first year of parenthood. So much love to your sweet, sweet family!
