We always know we are in for a fun-filled session when we make plans with any member of this family! This time around we had the honor of documenting the twins turning ONE! It turned into quite the celebration. Hannah is so great at creating birthday themes for her children – well thought out down to the very last detail. She also makes cute & custom items for them. The twins’ newborn session included handmade outfits by mom, so it was only fitting to have crocheted ice cream cones for each of them at their one year session! Incorporating your own props into your session makes your photos even more unique to you. We always encourage you to bring along anything sentimental to you, to showcase your current interests or better represent whatever the occasion may be. Obviously in this case ice cream was the birthday theme for this sweet little duo! Homemade props, birthday decorations, individual cakes – heck even the crowns & candles were made of sprinkles – all in all created another element of personalization while capturing this important milestone. Now we all know we can plan and plan and plan (location, time, outfits, props, poses, backgrounds, etc), but one thing we can’t know for certain are emotions. Our little Leo arrived all smiles, ready for his birthday party… and eventually became camera shy. Poor guy! Despite not wanting his picture taken, we were STILL able to capture him in the real moments of now. It’s okay to capture ALL the feelings. Beautiful, memorable photographs can still come from it. We might just have to work a little harder! 😉 Sister Blair, on the other hand, was enjoying every minute of being the star of the show! She even ended up with TWO birthday cakes! Seriously though, we also enjoyed every minute of this session with the two of them! Their personalities are really starting to show throughout their photos – sweet & adorable. Working closely with our clients and watching right along with you as your family grows is one of the greatest joys our small business brings to us. Thank you for always choosing us as your go-to photographer! We can’t wait to see what your next fun-filled session entails!   #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #birthdayphotos #studiosession #happybirthday #oneyearsession
