As a baby and family photographer I am sometimes asked to photograph special milestone events in my clients’ lives, and every once in a while I am able to make this work with my busy portrait schedule! I was thrilled to be able to photography baby Leela’s first birthday party in July! It was thoughtfully designed by Encore Event Design.
Leela’s family went all-out for this event and with valet parking, a fully staffed bar, and the most lovely decor, including a beautiful photo backdrop from Vintage Alley in Pittsburgh. This was set up for guests to take selfies, but I took advantage of the lovely setup and posed Leela’s family while we waited for her to wake up from her afternoon nap. 🙂
Can you believe this beautiful family portrait we got with Leela just minutes after she woke up? What a sweet baby! Leela is one of NINE granddaughters (yes, all girls!!), with four aunts on her mom’s side alone, so we gathered up as many of the ladies as we could very quickly and got them all in a snapshot.
This party was all about the details, and the dessert table was no exception! Everything looked delicious and lovely! Cake and desserts by Desserts Allure and Nice to be Iced.
One of my favorite details was the precious jewelry on Leela’s feet!
Leela didn’t disappoint on the cake smash! She dug in with the help of mom, dad, her two sisters, and her grandmas! The biggest smile came when she fed mom a bite! 🙂
Happy first birthday Leela! I was honored to share your special day with you!
