I first met Lauren & Mark two years ago for a holiday mini-session, along with their sweet daughter Allie. I was super excited to capture their maternity session last fall as they were expecting Allie's little sister, Natalie. When Lauren reached out a couple months ago to arrange Natalie's first birthday session, I immediately fell in love with the theme & vibe of the session: donuts! We settled on Celebration Pointe, which has become one of my favorite "urban" places for sessions. Lauren spared no detail for the setup, bringing balloons, banners, donuts, AND a cake!
I adore older siblings who assist with the cake smash, and Allie didn't disappoint (see photo evidence). While Natalie may have not been head-over-heels for her cake, she took full advantage of the donuts! Gajda fam, thank you so much for having me again!
