Every year when we come around to the fall, I am always struck by the passage of time. In the life of a child, there are so many firsts – so many new things! – happening all the time. Whether your wee ones are going to school for the first time or just going into a new grade, there are so many new firsts! New interests, new friends, new growth, new learning.
My children are young, so there are lots of the traditional kinds of firsts – first steps, first pizza, first hugs, first smiles, first playdates, first birthdays. I know that these are moments that happen only once in their lives and I do my best to remember them as they go by, even if they go by so quickly.
This is one of the reasons why I am so passionate about family photography. I can see these firsts whiz by in my own life, so I try to pause and capture them with my camera as often as possible. Even getting family photos once a year helps take me back to not only the photo event itself, but that time in our lives. It’s like a time machine transporting me to a time when my oldest first started talking in full sentences or when my youngest turned one.
I hope that you’ll take a few moments this month to cherish the firsts coming up in your child’s life. Whether you journal them, keep audio clips in a notes app on your phone, or work with someone like me to commemorate those moments, be sure to find a way to cherish them for years to come.
One of my favourite sessions is the Cake Smash session. This is a beautiful opportunity to capture your child at this once-in-a-lifetime milestone with family photos, photos of just your wee one, and some whimsical fun mixed in. These sessions create memories that last for generations to come.
Every cake smash session includes
- 1 hour in-studio or outdoor session
- Baby and family photos included
- Access to Client Closet and Props
- 35 edited, high resolution images chosen by you
- 5” buttercream cake
- Online gallery to share with family and friends
If your little one is turning 1 soon – I’d love to capture their first birthday milestone session with a cake smash added whether it’s in-studio or outdoors. I also offer gift certificates which make the perfect gift for parents. You can contact me to set up a consultation and we can discuss all the details to customize your photography experience
