Kaycee – First Birthday Cake Smash

I can hardly believe that an entire year has flown by since I met little miss Kaycee when she was just 4 day old! As her mom and I set-up for her cake-smash session we reminisced about how it really just seemed like a couple of weeks ago I had been at their home setting up for her newborn session. I absolutely love when I get to work with families as they grow. It’s so special watching these little ones grow into such adorable little people!

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY KAYCEE! ❤

Ryder & Jackson – Wainwright Childrens Portraits

It has been quite a long while since my favorite little minions have hit the blog. They are growing up so fast and they are FAST – which makes photo sessions without assistance much more difficult than it was in the past. Last week on one of my ‘Auntie Laura babysitting days’ I figured I would give a little session a shot. IT WAS HARD! I would get one of the minions sitting and go to grab the other but by the time I got minion #2 sitting Minion #1 would already be long gone looking for his own adventure. Needless to say, there aren’t really any photos of the munchkins together for this session. There is some major cuteness though!

Ryder & Jackson – First Birthday Cake Smash

I feel like every year seems to go by a little faster than the year before – this year definitely takes the cake though.

And while we’re talking about cake…. Ryder and Jackson LOVED their cakes made by Colby Mainville!

Lil’ J got a little crazy with the icing and wasn’t quite sure how to react. Poor little guy was feeling a little sick for a moment or two here.

He got over it though… lol

And Mr. R was pretty keen about this whole experience – and somehow stayed ‘kind of’ clean… In comparison to his brother anyways.

This whole session lasted no more than 20 minutes – and it was 20 minutes of full laughter from everyone who was watching. It was quite the event with lots of spectators. A special thanks to the guys at the fire hall for your help with the cleanup. You guys all rock!

And another special thanks to my dad for taking some of the photos as well as these ‘behind the scenes’ shots.

Mr. R has taken to finding being told ‘No!’ pretty funny… The kid was busting a gut when I told him not to touch my WHITE backdrop with his icing covered fingers!

Happy birthday Minions! I love you as much as you kids love cake (well… probably more than that actually…)
