Mason’s First Birthday!

I had the great opportunity to photograph Mason for his upcoming first birthday! With a “Trash the cake” session in mind, I baked a GIANT chocolate cupcake and decorated it with frosting and sprinkles, and transported it in my car for about an hour without it getting too messed up!
It was an absolutely BEAUTIFUL Seattle Saturday – the first day of Spring! We headed down to the park for a few initial family photos, and then set up for a messy session on the back deck. We decided to start off this 2nd part of the session with some birthday portraits, with Mason dressed up, sitting next to his cake. This was his first cake! He took one good swipe at the frosting, so we got him down to his diapers so he could do some damage.
Well… mommy had to give him a little help with making a mess – the poor little guy didn’t seem to know what to do with the oversized cupcake! He had a few fistfuls of icing, and then he was done… (I’m going to assume that his lack of appetite was not due to my baking)!
All in all, we got some great shots – he sure was a good little model for me! Enjoy!

Lucy Takes a Bath

I had to post a few pictures of my little Lucy taking a bath. The last two are my favorite 🙂
