Kingwood Mini Session – Colette’s Cake Smash

I loved all of my mini sessions this year, but I have to say that this one might win out for the cutest one! I got to take some portraits of Colette for her first birthday, and then she got to dive into some cake! This sweet girl wasn’t feeling her best that day, but she was a trooper & was still just absolutely adorable! And the way she ate her cake? Priceless.

I just love getting images of little ones walking – there’s just something about how you can see that determined, yet sometimes unsteady step in there that melts my mama heart. Colette is a lot more determined than unsteady though – she had me running!

This right here kind of sums up portraits with 1 year olds – there’s not much hope of that “sit here & smile” kind of thing! And while I work my tail off to make sure we get some of those, I also just love the photos that so accurately capture that stage of wanting to go go go enjoy the freedom they just found in walking!

I love how this happens at almost every single cake smash – that moment when the kiddo looks up at mom or dad with that look on their face like “Wait… why aren’t you telling me to stop or taking this away from me? You’re telling me this is ok?!?!”

Best. Cake. Eating. Strategy. EVER. (Though it makes my hips hurt a little to see her do that!)

Love that little chunk of icing still stuck in the back of her knee!
