It seems crazy to think that I was just taking her newborn photos; now little miss Alexandra Grace is an active, sassy, clever one-year-old! It’s true what they say: kids grow up in a blink of an eye.
Alex is growing quickly, nearly walking and loves exploring new things. In particular, I had the pleasure of capturing something new for her to explore in honor of her first birthday: CAKE! Her ‘birthday girl’ outfit was one of the cutest I’ve seen, and the range of emotion she shared during our session was unreal — from her serious face to the most innocent bits of laughter and happiness when she saw her parents and pictures of her big brother.
It was adorable to watch her go from lightly tapping the top of the cake to see what frosting is all about, to diving in full force once she realized just how delicious sugar is.
