I debated titling this post with “baby photographer” because Zella was celebrating her two year birthday but as she was my first newborn ever and I have a sentimental connection with the idea of her being a baby I decided to title it with baby even though she’s now a little girl. A little girl who, by the way, is so ladylike that she insisted on a fork and parental assistance to “smash” her cake.
I did this little guys newborn photos and it was so fun to see the smoochable little cutie he has turned into one year later. He took a lot of coaxing to dig into his cake which is NOT uncommon for cake smashes haha. I had to reassure his mom that all babies have a tendency to not be impressed with the process of being encouraged to do something they’re usually discouraged from doing and doing it in front of a stranger with a camera pointed at their face Patience is the name of the game. And of course everyone is allowed to cry on their birthday, hehe.
