William's Aviator Cake Smash

I had the wonderful pleasure to photograph Mr. William's newborn and his 1st year portraits. 

After posting for a maternity model call, I got the pleasure of meeting his beautiful expecting mommy Rodlyn. We chatted quiet a bit during her session about her pregnancy, his excited big sister, and just overall the eagerness of William's arrival.

Then.. I received the text that he'd arrived! Following the arrangement of his first session, I was so excited to finally meet him. Sure enough, a week later mom, dad, and big sister come with their newest member... William!

I still remember tucking those little fingers under his chin... and oh my goodness those toes! He was such a good baby through out his session. Working with him at his newborn stage was absolutely blissful!

Now, a year later, we celebrate his 1st birthday. 

I do suggest practicing with a cupcake at home (not all babies take to the processed sugar) but William took to his like a champ! I've rarely seen a little one just full on shove their face into the cake.. Mom and I were laughing so hard!
 
To have photographed his growth was the greatest reward and to provide these images for mom and dad?!? ....absolutely priceless!
