When babies love cake!! - Austin TX - First Birthday Cake Smash

Now that the holidays are over, school is back in session, and things are going back to normal (whatever that is), I am finding time to press on with the things I've been itching to do.  One of those things is talking about this adorable family and their sweet sweet little boy who happened to have his first birthday a few weeks ago!   I would love to share with you =)

 CAKE SMAAAAAASH!  

CAKE SMAAAAAASH!  

As you can see, there is was NO shortage of adorable toddler for this session, hahaha!  Mom and I discussed her hopes and desires for these pictures-- she wanted them to match his birthday party theme, which was Winter "One"derland. I put on my crafty-jeans and pulled together this set up, and we created a lovely set of images for this family to remember and cherish. The best part was that , despite the freezing weather we were having in the Austin area, we were able to be toasty and warm in my little home studio =)  

Oh.  I would also like to show off the beautiful canvas that this family ordered for the occasion!  Isn't it the greatest keepsake?  I know I wish I had one made for when my littles turned one!
 

 This is an alcove in my own home which norrrrrrrrmally has something much bigger hanging in it. This is for illustration purposes only folks! hahaha

Oh, and just in case you need more cute in your life (It is Monday morning, after all) then you MUST MUST MUST view their personal video on Youtube. Or view it in the current browser window. Whichever you prefer, but make sure you view it. =) It's available all the way up to 1080p (high definition) so for the best viewing experience, I would definitely head to YouTube and click on the HD button to make sure you're watching every pixel perfectly.

Nothing beats the feeling of Art

Your family as Art for your home.

There are very few things as satisfying as creating beautiful pictures for families here in the Austin Texas area.  However, growing up in the digital age has all but ruined a lot us and the appreciation for a finely printed photograph, so most of the time, our beautiful families end up on a silver disc, stuck in a drawer somewhere instead of displayed proudly on our walls.   I, however, am here to remedy that -- it's why I do what I do.

You may have seen this gorgeous family on my Facebook Page, or through my portfolio images.  They have trusted me over the last few years to capture the memories that are practically impossible to capture on their own (let's face it, besides a cell phone selfie, when was the last time you actually took a picture of *yourself*?)  When they told me they wanted an updated family picture, I was more than happy to take them to this gorgeous Fall location in Round Rock, where we caught some great images of this sweet family of four.  You can catch them all in the link to my video below. But I digress-- My whole purpose in posting this is to show how this.....

Can turn into this....
