For this little girl’s first birthday we did a family session including visiting grandparents before her cake smash studio session.
We ventured into the foothills for this beautiful Fall location.
I love this foothills location with beautiful Aspen trees and field.
We decided to do early morning for this family session since we all know little ones of this age do better in the morning.
It was pretty fun to be out early and only ones in the park.
We decided morning will work best for this little guy and met early at a local park.
I have photographed this family many times. I know mom likes the traditional portraits (all looking at the camera) to fill in her photo wall at home but dad prefers the candid photos showing more the personalities of each kiddo. So I took a combo of these and gave them plenty of options to choose from.
This family is such an active outdoor family - running, biking, soccer. So it was kind of strange to see them all dressed up and combed hair for their 'nice' portraits, but then they got in their soccer gear and they really were in the element :)
