I have been very lucky to meet a wonderful group of mothers in Columbia since we moved just over a year ago. Miss A’s mom and I met after she won a session I had donated to a local auction (funds went to support a business owner in her effort to Walk for a Cure). Miss A was only 4 months or so when we first met! I can’t believe she is already ONE! I say this every time – but time sure does fly!!  

I always love the smash cake tradition for first birthdays and I think it’s such a fun thing to capture as it’s the only time they’ll really look cute with cake from head to toe! 😉  We took an afternoon to get some fun cake pictures after she had already enjoyed her first cake at her party. Hopefully the weather will cooperate this week and we can get some on location portraits taken! We have had a cold snap here – it even snowed last week!!! My kids had a blast, but it isn’t conducive to outdoor photos in a short sleeved dress!
