The location was gorgeous and the cool weather was a nice break from the hot August heat.



They preferred a more relaxed and candid session. And we filled our time together with lots running around and laughter.

 This sweet girl is turning one year old in just a few weeks, and to celebrate she ate a cake… one teeny tiny fingertip at a time.



But once she noticed her toes had been attacked by frosting, she decided to embrace the messiness.sugarcoatedimages-8356




After all, if you can pull off covered-in-frosting-and-still-cute then you might as well go for it.
