Ryleigh's First Birthday - Aurora, IL Photographer

Happy birthday, Ryleigh! 

It was so much fun to have her in my home studio for a smash cake session! It took some coaxing, but she eventually realized she could dig in to that birthday cake. And I loved the chance to use lots of pink!

Adeline's First Birthday - Aurora, IL Photographer

Wow! Adeline is already one! I'm always amazed at how quickly my little friends grow.

Sweet Adeline and her parents came by the studio for some fun. We started outside (again - SO lucky to have a nice spot behind my house!) to get some updated family pictures and a couple shots of Adeline in all that green grass. I'm loving my new lens that allows me to get those beautiful creamy backgrounds outside!

Then we made our way back inside for some studio portraits. Adeline's mom had sent pictures of her outfits beforehand, so I was able to decorate the studio around this adorable dress. Shopping for girl stuff is so much fun!

Her mom made her this adorable cake (she had a Wizard of Oz party) and we told her to have at it. She wasn't entirely sure what to do, but I think the cake smash was a success!

Happy Birthday, Adeline!

First Birthday Session - Aurora Family Photographer

It feels like yesterday I was bouncing this baby so her Mommy could eat at a 4th of July party and now look at her! ONE! I love getting to see so many little babes grow up, it's an incredible perk of the job. And seeing how her big sister Annabelle loves taking care of her is just the sweetest. Happy Birthday, Evie!

Aurora Family Photographer - Ryan & AJ's birthdays

These boys are always such a joy to be around. They stopped by my home studio for some birthday pictures and all of us had a blast!

Juniper's First Birthday

I love this little girl! I've taken so many pictures of her and it's so much fun every time. She was full of smiles here for her first birthday pictures; she's always such a joy to be around :)

Daly Kids Easter & Birthday

Busy, busy! The twins' first birthday and Easter! Would you look at these outfits! SO adorable. Dean and Logan were full of smiles as always, and the girls were all over the place! Easter eggs and birthday balloons are a lot of fun when you're one. We are all looking forward to doing a session outside soon!
