I can’t believe it’s been one full year since I did Natalie’s newborn session! I also had the chance to do her 6 month photos and it’s been so sweet watching her grow into a little toddler over the last year. To celebrate her first birthday, Sarah, Dusty and Natalie joined me for a session at the park!
Natalie is definitely toddling around and has such personality with her big smile. I think she totally favors Dusty in her looks. She likes to play peek a boo, run as fast as she can until she plops on her tush and play with Mommy and Daddy. One of my favorite parts about one year photo sessions is that although they are getting to be so big, their baby features still show -- little dimpled hands, chubby feet, hair tufts over their ears and it's all so stinkin sweet!
We got to the point of doing her cake smash with the adorable cake Sarah made for her. As it turns out, Natalie has the opposite of a sweet tooth and actually detests sweet things. You can imagine how she felt about her smash cake. I’ve never seen a 1 year old with such distaste for their cake, but it just goes to show no two kids are the same! After exploring her cake, she was definitely ready for clean up and snuggles with her Daddy.
Congrats on surviving your first year of parenthood, Sarah and Dusty! You guys are doing great!
