My friend Wendy, the mommy of today’s darling blog post, and her husband Dave threw a lavish first birthday party for her first born, Athena, not to long ago. Prior to this little shin-dig, we got together for Athena’s first birthday portraits. I had the lavender tutu waiting and ready and when the day arrived for our photos I was super excited. I love making portrait sessions a little bit more special and individualized with props and fun items.
Here’s a fun sequence of images to start out.
And a couple in her “Christmas” dress.
Little Athena braved the chilly air for me outside and we snapped a few by her mom and dad’s garden.
This sweet and delicious cake came from Sweet Cakes by Rebecca (she totally rocks the Sacramento cake world). Thanks Rebecca, we loved it! Athena is a little hesitant at first…
