Colters one year milestone session was such a good experience for everyone involved, this little man has the sweetest personality! Colter was very shy at the beginning of his one year and cake smash session, he wanted so badly to just stay right by his mommas side. When little ones come to a session and are shy at first, have no fear, patience is here! Patience is a hallmark of photographers that primarily work with younger kiddos and babies. I am always willing to give your child the time he or she needs to relax into the environment and come out of their shell enough to show off their little personalities! During our current pandemic situation, patience with little ones is even more important as some of them have really only had the chance to be around mom and dad during their first year. Some kids need a bit to get comfortable with new people and new situations and that is one hundred percent ok! After a little bit of getting to know each other, I was able to capture these fun images of Colter for his one year milestone session. I love that he showed off his teeth and chubby cheeks with those big smiles! He got super playful with the chair images and those images bring an instant smile to my face!
Colter wasn’t totally sure about his cake at first glance. He wasn’t super into the idea of actually tasting the cake, but he definitely was down to play with it! The old saying “don’t play with your food!” does not apply here, once he dug his hands in he had a blast and it shows! I added an organic background element with the vines to incorporate some texture and interest throughout the entire images. Of course I cannot forget to mention the extreme cuteness of the shot from behind with all of the stuffed animals- SO precious!
