One Year Portraits and Cake Smash, St. Louis, Missouri

First birthday pictures are among the most popular child portrait sessions, and for good reason; there is so much to celebrate! Everyone survived (YAY!), what was once brand new (and, let's face it, a little scary) is becoming a more comfortable routine, and you look back over the year and think, even though it's only been 12 months, you can't imagine the time that this little one wasn't a part of your family.

"One Year" photos are great for documenting all those milestones babies manage to conquer in such a short time, from sitting and crawling, to standing and maybe even walking!


Plus it is a perfect time to catch natural smiles, laughter, and most importantly, your child's emerging personality.


This little girl came up with look after look that resulted in a birthday portfolio that is just a treasure of sweetness, joy, and fun.
