Last week marked the first birthday of Miss Emma Louise, so we had ourselves a wee photo shoot to celebrate the occasion. It was an unseasonably gorgeous day in Vail and I shot the session with our porch door open to let in lots of natural light and we had no problems with temperature. Our biggest problem was trying to keep Emma and Maxwell from crawling out the door. To have a little girl in my house with lots of ooey gooey pink loveliness was a nice change. The pink decorations were left over from Emma's first birthday party, so they made for great props. Kim (Emma's mother and my dear friend) was able to borrow 3 baby chairs for the day. They were so fun to play around with and the perfect accessory for children that aren't quite standing yet. I really need to invest in some of those! The highlight of the shoot was definitely the cake smash. Emma was more interested in putting her feet in the cake!
Kim and I were pretty exhausted after the shoot so we celebrated on the deck in the spring sunshine with a well deserved glass of wine. I love the spring time in the Rockies! Happy first birthday Emma Lou. xxoo
