I can’t even believe its been almost a year since I had Millie in for her newborn images! I actually began photographing her family when her mom approached me very late in pregnancy to have a last minute maternity session. Her husband was in Honduras, so I wanted to make sure that she felt special for her session. We went out to Turtle River and shot during sunset to get those gorgeous glowy photos.
Only a few weeks later, I got to meet Miss Millie. She was super awake and didn’t really want to settle for her newborn photos. I could tell she already had a big personality. She had the most gorgeous hair for a newborn, and those lips!!
Millie came back at 6 months to have a special milk bath/ family session. Grandma was out visiting from Honduras and it was an exciting time for everyone! Millie wasn’t really sure about her milk bath, but we got some sweet photos. She really just wanted to eat all the flowers.
Fast Forward to yesterday…..
Millie was turning one and a few months ago, mom booked her cake smash session but didn’t really have any solid ideas on a theme. She wanted dark purple, navy, Burgundy type colors that would represent berries and a farmers market look. I wasn’t really able to find anything that had been done in that theme, so I knew I had 100% creative control. I had this vision in my head and I was going to execute it! We got Millie a gorgeous cake from O’ For Heavens Cakes and More here in Grand Forks. What better cake than a naked cake with some powdered sugar and berries! Mom and Dad absolutely loved the way it all came together, and I did as well! Take a peak at a preview of her cake smash session!
