I’m so excited to share some joyful 1st birthday photos with you today from Ella’s studio milestone session! From the moment Ella and her parents stepped into the studio, the air was filled with an infectious energy. Ella, with her bright eyes and contagious smile, seemed to sense the excitement of her 1st birthday just around the corner.

Choosing Outfits for Ella’s Photoshoot

This session was extra special because Ella’s mom brought along the dress she wore for her own 1st birthday photos many years ago. And of course, Ella looked absolutely ADORABLE in it! For Ella’s second outfit, Mom picked out a sweet two piece floral set from my Client Closet that brought out the blue in Ella’s eyes. I don’t think she could be any cuter if she tried!

Ella’s 1st Birthday Photoshoot

We started our session with some solo shots of Ella, allowing her to play and explore as her parents looked on with pride. Against the light & bright backdrop of my natural light studio, Ella’s vibrant personality truly shone through. Whether she was giggling at her parents making silly faces at her over my shoulder, or having a blast flipping through a picture book from my Client Closet, I just can’t get over all of Ella’s adorable expressions!

Snuggles With Mommy & Daddy

As the photoshoot progressed, it became clear that the bond between Ella and her parents was something truly special. From tender cuddles to playful tickles, their interactions were filled with laughter and affection. As her parents lifted her up and showered her with kisses, I could see the pure joy radiating from their faces. It was heartwarming to witness the unbreakable connection between them, and I made sure to capture it from every angle.

Feeling the Love!

Mom’s reaction when she first saw the photos from our session absolutely made my heart sing! “Oh my gosh,” she said, “I am obsessed with them!!! THANK YOU!!! You have a gift, thank you so much, truly. I’ll be recommending you to my friends for sure!!” THIS is why doing 1st birthday photos brings me so much joy! Being able to capture once in a lifetime moments like this as your little one stands on the cusp of toddlerhood is such a blessing for me.

Happy 1st birthday, sweet Ella! I can’t wait to see you again soon and watch you grow!
