Please join me in wishing a very happy birthday to Adilynn!
This cute girl is all of one year old and I was delighted to have her in my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon last month to celebrate the occasion with a special birthday cake smash. We both had a great time, and as you can see from the above photograph, Adilynn enjoyed her cake immensely and preferred to dive in face first and eat it mostly hands free. She did get a little on her fingers, but decided it was too sticky that way. Anyway, why waste time getting it on your hands when it’s supposed to end up in your mouth, right? I like the way this kiddo thinks.
Adilynn was a super sweet little girl. This was her first time being one of my photography subjects, and while newborns obviously couldn’t care less, slightly older little ones like this sometimes take a while to warm up to the lady with the camera. Not so with Adilynn. She is clearly very confident because neither my lens nor I could faze her a bit. I guess she knew the camera loves her! This sweetheart was one happy girl, and all smiles through the entire baby photography session. And what a great smile she has! It made it easy to get lots of really cute photos.
I mean, seriously. Talk about an awesome smile! It lights up her whole face, and I love how it shows off her chubby cheeks and perfect little front teeth. She really is adorable, and I am a big fan of that sunset orange color on her. It’s so bright and cheery, and stands out really well against the dark backgrounds of the top right and lower left photos, as well as the quieter pastels of her little hot air balloon—just about to launch into the skies!
I’m so glad I got to meet Adilynn and spend some time with her, enjoying a tasty birthday cake and stopping to smell the flowers along the way. This little girl was so much fun and a real pleasure to work with during our baby photography session. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these pictures as much as Adilynn and I enjoyed creating them!
