On a rainy Saturday afternoon we headed to see James. He is turning one soon and is a member of our birthday club. This means we get to see him a couple of times a year to capture how big he is getting. The plan was to take some photos outside in the backyard but because of the rain we need to move indoors. No problem we are always ready for anything and their house had plenty of areas to work with for the photos. James was having a morning nap when we arrived so was a bit confused when he woke up to us in his room. But this nap put him in a great mood, ready for photos. He posed with mom and dad, even got his best four legged friend Sophie in the photos. James loves to look at books so we took advantage by doing some photos in his reading chair. It was very cute to watch him doing his favorite thing. It was also a must that he showed us his favorite car that he loves to walk around the house with – he is getting very fast! We thought the rain had slowed down for a bit, or so we hoped! We went outside to do a few photos in the garden and it was alright for a bit but even just a mist of rain seems like lots of rain after about 10 minutes. Oh well, it gave James some new scenery for a bit. Time for cake!!! The best part of a one year session is the smash cake, all kids love the cake part. Where the wild things are was the theme and James had a super cute tail and crown to wear while he dug into his homemade cake. James gave us a few smiles but was all cake in face during these photos! So fun to see him and we are looking forward to his 18 month session when he will have even more little personality…if that is even possible.
