These first birthday photos were taken in my South Jersey studio. I no longer offer cake smashes to clients and instead I take a more traditional route to many of my portrait sessions. First birthdays are included in that category and I love just taking photos of the birthday boy or girl in the studio, being themselves. It happens fairly often that kids don't enjoy the cake and they are less than enthusiastic in the photos. I love that when I can just photograph the baby turning one, I can get their normal reactions while interacting with mom, dad and siblings. This photo was taken after we did a few family photos and photos with her brother. We wanted to grab a few photos of the birthday girl by herself with a small hat just to commemorate the big day. I love this clean and simple photos of her on the white backdrop, loving life! After these portraits were finished we were able to head down to the Riverton Yacht Club and Delaware waterfront for a few more photos of the family having fun together. As Riverton residents hanging out down at the river is not uncommon so it was nice to be able to capture the family in their element.
