How cute? I met Evelyn and her family last year, when she was about a month old and wow time flies. I always love seeing families again and watching the kids grow up, it makes the sessions so much more than a job.
I was excited for this session! Mom and Dad wanted to use their surf board as a prop and I knew it would really make for some awesome shots. The fact that Evelyn herself was adorable as well definitely helped too! These photos are definitely going down as some of my favorites. These are some of my favorites from Evelyn's first photo session.
Cupcake time! They got the cutest cupcakes from a local bakery here in Ocean City called The Beachin' Bakery. We decided to stay under the pier for the cupcake smash and used the surfboard again to really add to the beach-y shoot. When we gave her the cupcake she was so hesitant at first. She looked so dainty at first when she tasted the cupcake. A few tastes of the frosting and then before we knew it the cupcake became a sand-cake...
It was foggy morning in Ocean City. I personally love the look of foggy mornings. They create such a soft and matte look for the photographs.
After the smash we cleaned up and had a quick wardrobe change before we took a few more photos with mommy and daddy. Evelyn had fun, and I made sure to capture some of happy baby smiles while she held hands with her parents. She love the water and is definitely a beach baby!
Mom and Dad personally loved the photo with Evelyn looking over Daddy's shoulder from her first photo session, which is personally one of my favorites as well. We recreated that photo and hope to do that every year as well! Evelyn made the perfect little model and made my job easy! I swear I don't always say that! If you scroll through the photos you may even see a mermaid!
I loved this session and seeing Evelyn and her family again! Being able to celebrate Evelyn's first birthday with her is an honor . We already made plans to meet again in a year and celebrate her second birthday too, same place, same surfboard!
I love capturing these memories and moments for my clients. Thank you for letting me capture these moments for you and I will see you next year Evelyn! Have a fun year!
