So… your baby is creeping up on that HUGE first year milestone and you want to remember it. You want to freeze those tiny details before they grow and change again. You want them to be themselves and dive into a cake for the first time. You want to hold them tight and maybe read them a favorite book. You want time to slow down.

      You’re not alone…

      These AMAZING parents came to me from the one and only Leeann Marie. Their beautiful Pittsburgh Botanic Garden wedding was a dream and Leeann caught every drop of gorgeous light and family emotion that made up their day. I always love to see a LMP bride take on motherhood. Anyone working with her on their wedding day cares deeply about family. So, when they grow their own and find their way to me… I’m humbled.

      The wedding came and went. Their beautiful and perfect addition arrived.  Mama and daddy blinked.  All of the sudden they were picking out a custom smash cake and the perfect TwoLittles + Lou romper for a first year photo session.

      Sweet Gia. You are loved in ways you’ll never understand. Add me to the list of people that just can’t get over your little personality and big eyes. I hope that you look back on these sweet images when you’re 18, 25, 40, etc and know a few things:

      Your parents were crazy about you.
      You made people work for a smile.
      You loved a good book, snuggled up on a cozy lap.
      And your first bite of cake was an adorable adventure!

      There’s no doubt in my mind that your second year will go as fast as the first. It will be made with more love-filled moments than you and your parents can handle.

      Happy Birthday, dear Gia!
