Happy 1st Birthday, Leila!
At the end of August, I took my first trip back to NJ for work – a packed weekend with family sessions. I spent Saturday at Colonial Park and on Sunday morning I set out very early to Asbury Park, NJ for a few beach sessions. The first of which was a cake smash for one of my former colleagues turned friend turned client.
I had photographed Lauren and Gary last August for their maternity session, and a few short weeks later for their daughters’ newborn session (which didn’t go exactly as planned, but we got some very memorable shots to say the least).
I was very honored when Lauren asked if I would come back to NJ to do the cake smash, and as it turned out, I was already planning on being in town that weekend.
After several intense brainstorming sessions over text and phone calls, we had a plan. Fingers crossed for good weather and a happy and cooperative baby!
Well, mother nature did not disappoint and Leila absolutely rocked her session – we got every shot I wanted and more.
Happy 1st Birthday Leila, I am looking forward to watching you grow!
