I’m so so SAH happy to share Lani Grace’s First Birthday CAKE SMASH session! Lani was, I think, My second “official” newborn session a little over a year ago even though I had done other newborn sessions before… (really? it feels like longer!)… anyway… Her mom Diana and I have known each other since we were little… seriously, I have a photo of us when we were maybe five in our ballet costumes about ready to perform! In high school, although always friendly she was a grade year older so we didn’t necessarily run in the same “social circles” even though we sort of did… (high school sort of fuzzy to me, sorry!) Anywho, after we graduated high school Dee and I had this funny thing where we would always see each other at almost ANY Target store we’d go to… whether it was the one closest to our homes or on the opposite side of the city… somehow we *always* run into each other… fast forward to her expecting Lani & our maternity session and then Lani’s session… we quickly became more than “high school acquaintances who now randomly see each other at Target stores”… I meaaaaaaannnnnn (inside joke)… we even have our Monday night “Bachelor/ette Dates” 😉 Here are some shots from Lani’s newborn sesh (where although I LOVE her session, you can see just how much my style has changed in just one year!).. and then of course the sessions from her cake smash! Keep an eye out for some “before & after” shots we took as well! 😉 xoxo!
