Eugene, Oregon Baby and Child Photographer: Ace is ONE!

 Had such a fun milestone and cake smash photography session with this family last month. This was kind of a bittersweet session for me because it wraps up my baby package for baby number two. Ace is one year old now and I’ve been photographing him and his big brother Knox every few months since they were newborns, as well as doing Brittany’s maternity sessions. They are the sweetest family and I have loved being able to document their babies growing!

We wanted to get the full experience in this session, so we started off with milestone baby pictures of Ace and his parents and brother before getting out the cake. Although mini sessions focus just on baby, full sessions always give you the opportunity to include other members of the family, so it’s a great time to a couple of updated family pictures or sibling shots.

Ace is such a smiley baby—but he was also happy to show off the full range of his facial expressions for me. He liked making grumpy faces at me and holding it for as long as he could before I coaxed another smile out of him. His grouchy face never lasted long! He especially liked riding my little wicker horse prop. Look at that grin!

Once we’d gotten lots of baby portraits it was time for cake. Ace wasn’t totally sure what to make of that experience. He ran the gamut from slightly bewildered to very upset to “maybe this isn’t so bad after all.” And yes, he did manage to get frosting all over himself, which is always a plus for cake smash photography!

I am so going to miss seeing this family every few months! Even though Ace is now a year old and we’ve reached the end of the sessions included in my year-long package, I hope I’ll continue to see them regularly for updated photos. In the meantime, a very happy first birthday to this sweet little man!
