A wonderful birthday club session that started with smiles and ended with cake. It doesn’t get any better than that! We love capturing the moments because kids grow so fast. Why does it seem that our birthday club members grow so fast? One day we are photographing a newborn session and then BAM we are doing a one -year session. We were very excited to hear from mom when she set up Luella’s photos. We had done her older brother at their house so she wanted to do the same for her. It was very excited to see the decorations that were used for her donut party. Since they had them at the house we were able to use them for the photos. Luella, admittedly so, is not a baby that smiles all the time. She wants to take in her surroundings and then decide if you are worthy of her smiles. We started off photos in her party dress. It was such a cute dress with tons of ruffles that didn’t bother her, however that bow was another story. Luella is not a fan of bows on her head. Luckily mom just rolls with it and when the bow comes off we just keep going with photos. With some help from both mom and dad Luella felt comfortable enough with us being at her house. She started to show us those true smiles. She really liked to stand and dance to Flogging Molly, hey some Irish beats can really get you going. A few photos with our favorite stuffed toys doesn’t hurt either. We ended the session with the smash cake, that is the best way to end since most babies get very messy. Luella of course got messy but that was really because dad smashed her hand in the cake. She ate a bit, but really just wanted to be on the move instead. Big brother helped a bit, but we think that was just so he could steal a donut from the set. Luella didn’t seem to mind! Despite the early warm up time Luella was happy during her session so we were able to get many photos of her. We look forward to the next birthday club session where she will most likely be running. Don’t miss the moments because kids grow fast.   #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #oneyearsession #birthdayclub #locationphotos
