One of my favorite things about being in a creative field is it allows me to well, be creative. That means, each time I have a session I get to explore and find my style. 9 months into this gig since moving back to Indiana, I am realizing I am a less is more person. I like it when the person is the subject and focus rather than everything around them. So, when Lori, a mama of three littles, with her youngest turning one, asked me to set up for a cake smash, I knew I wanted the focus on one year old, Jackson. She asked for advice on the cake and outfits and we went from there. I love how they turned out. Capturing Jackson's personality from his scrunchy face to his to bright blue eyes.
P.S. Jackson's mama specifically decided not to give him a haircut till after his first birthday, because she wanted to capture his baby-ness in the pictures before it disappeared on her. I just love that so much. The days are long but the years are short and our babies grow up in a flash.
