A Special 1st Birthday for a Sweet Boy!

On location One Year Session – Mt. Pleasant, MI

This adorable little one is Brayden. He is the perfect mashup of his daddy and mommy and let me tell you…. this boy is l.o.v.e.d! His one year milestone session took place at his grandparent’s GORGEOUS home. Their landscaping rivals any park I’ve ever been to. 😉 I’m always super pleased with his mommy’s clothing selections and once again she did a wonderful job!

Coming home to my house wasn’t so easy! lol! While I’m not a “year round” family photographer, and I don’t offer full blown family sessions throughout the year, I absolutely love and encourage you to grab some family poses during your little one’s session! Adding on some family poses to Brayden’s one year session was a snap! Psst…did you know that I offer an event in the fall specifically for family sessions? Make sure to join my email subscribe list at the bottom of this post to be sure you don’t miss next year’s event! These once a year sessions always sell out and it happens fast!Cake smashes are a popular theme to do for a one year session, but here’s the thing about cake smashes…. kids either love it and have a blast, or they hate it and cry. There is no in between! Maybe there is such thing as too much of a good thing? (Too much cake? Nah… not possible!)Mid Michigan PhotographerA little clean up tubby time after playing with cake! I’ll give you one guess as to what he was playing with…. 😉 Best ChildrenCentral Michigan PhotographerOne Year SessionOne Year Session
