Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: Thea is ONE!

Thea came in last month with her parents, Annabelle and Josh, for a cake smash mini photography session. It’s been a few months since I last saw Thea—aside from her newborn pictures, I also did an eight-month mini session with her in early spring of this year. She still has the amazingly thick, dark hair she was born with, sweet chubby cheeks, and a fun-loving personality. Mom tied her hair back this time to try to keep it out of her face (and out of the frosting!) With that much hair it tends to get a little out of control sometimes, and I remember it was always falling into her eyes when I did her eight-month pictures, although she didn’t seem to mind.

We did plenty of pink in Thea’s last session, and Annabelle wanted this photo shoot to be really pink and girly also. I think we succeeded! While the photos from our last meeting were very girly, but still pretty simple, we went all out with this one and did lots and lots of pink, plus some gold stars and balloons to match her sparkly outfit (which was complete with birthday hat—how cute is that!)

I knew Thea was a sweetie from my last couple of times seeing her. She’s always been super good for me, but as a Eugene, Oregon photographer I’ve come to accept that there’s always an element of the unpredictable in photography—especially baby photography! When I’m doing a cake smash I never know what kind of a reaction I’m going to get. Sometimes kiddos who usually do great with having their picture taken end up having a complete meltdown when an unfamiliar mound of sticky sweetness is added to the mix, so I’ll admit it was with some trepidation that I presented Thea with her cake. I shouldn’t have worried though. Luckily for all of us, her easygoing personality won out and she decided she loved it! She did a fantastic job of smashing it, using both fists and feet as equally effective demolition tools. It was fun to watch her squish squash her way through the icing and cover herself in pink frosting from toes to knees, fingertips to elbows, and all over her face, and I was glad she had a good time!

This little cutie never disappoints! I always love it when I get to have her in my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon—we always have a great time together and it always results in some great pictures! It’s wonderful to see how much she’s growing and thriving, and I loved the opportunity to catch up with her mom and dad as well. I’ve gotten to know this family pretty well over the last few years, doing pictures for both their sweet girls (Thea’s big sister, Annalise, is two years older than Thea) ever since they were born, and they are such amazing people. I’m already looking forward to the next time I can have them in my studio!
