Got to do some photos for a good friend and her wonderful little family for a special occasion: her son Phineas’ first birthday smash cake. Mom made the crown (and cake!) and I was seriously dying of cuteness. Not to mention there is something just so tragically funny about a kid crying his heart out while at the same time shoving cake in his mouth.
Just in time! We planned on doing this maternity session a couple weeks earlier but life happens and had to reschedule. And it’s a good thing we got it in, little baby Burris decided she was ready for her closeup just one week after the maternity shoot. It was a great day at the Orange circle which happened to be the same location we did their wedding photos back in 2012! We got to recreate some photos from the wedding shoot but with bonus dog and belly this time. After making a very pregnant Ariana walk her feet off in Orange (although she was amazing and smiled and laughed through the entire event) we said goodbye and planned on seeing each other for the delivery a few weeks later. Then the following Friday morning I got a text that baby was on her way! Well almost. After a long day and night and part of another day (without any drugs) momma Burris finally delivered little Cameron May ( I absolutly love that name). It was such a beautiful experience to be a part of. I feel truly blessed to be able to capture these moments for such wonderful people and now wonderful parents.
