Happy 1st Birthday Party Addison!

A couple days after her 1 year family portraits and cake smash, I documented Addison's first birthday party! Did you know when you book a portrait session, you can add event package B to your portrait package for 50% off!? Adding the documentation of an event so close to an important portrait session (such as your child's first birthday) is a great way to grab moments of the whole entire family and circle of friends because those people are all part of the story too. Needless to say, adding the documentation of the first birthday party is very popular amongst the 1 year olds. And especially popular with my birth and newborn clients, as Addison here is, (see Good Morning Addison + Six Day Old Addison). 

So, on top of adding an event session, we also added a video story! These sweet stories are a hot new item that I offer to both event and portrait packages. They're adorable mini documentaries. They're the perfect keepsake. Here, watch Addison's Story by pressing play:

So cute right? I really love making these stories!

Anyway, here's a collection of my favourite pictures from Addi's super fun party because of course we also took soooo many pictures.

Addison's Cake Smash!

Everyone will warn you that it will go by so fast. They will comfort you on the hard days by reminding you of how soon it will be over and how you'll be begging for those baby days again. It's hard to believe, but then you blink and your baby is one.
I can't even believe that one year ago we were celebrating her arrival with a birth story and a newborn session and now here she is 365 days later embracing baby life while dipping her feet feet in to toddlerhood! That little squishy baby that could easily lay in one of your arms becomes hard to hold with two hands let alone one because one year olds are here there and everywhere.
The next year will likely go faster and the milestones just as epic as you say goodbye to the baby days and hello to the days of strong willed independence. But my goooodness aren't they just the cutest little cheeky monkeys at this stage!?

We ended the session by sending a balloon up to Addi's twin sister. And then a couple days after this, I documented Addi's first birthday party! Did you know that when you book a portrait session you can add event package B to your session for 50% off?! 

Stay tuned for those fun pictures coming to the blog soon!!
