Mia is ONE!!! I can't believe it!! Seems like just yesterday I was meeting the "H" family for the first time in their home. We kicked off our Watch Me Grow series when Mia was 3 months old. Since it's been so hot here, Mom thought it would be best to circle back around and do Mia's cake smash inside their home. It was a brilliant idea.
Mia is learning to walk and showed me a few steps -- SO EXCITING!! Not only is she learning to walk, but she also has some really fancy dance moves. Turn on a little Bruno Mars & she was moving and clapping!! She is seriously the happiest baby.... just as smiley as ever. Mia also showed me how much she loved her birthday balloon (Mom said she was more excited about the balloon then she was the cake at her birthday party!). We played for a little bit, took some family pictures, and got right into smashing the (cup)cake! Mia wasn't really into the cake smash, but Mom & Dad helped her along. After we were full of buttercream icing, Mom & Dad gave baby girl a quick rinse in the kitchen sink. I think all cake smashes should end in a bubble bath! Before leaving, Mom showed me the "Mommy & Me" shirts that were gifted to her and Mia. They are quite possibly the cutest shirts I've ever seen. I'm so happy Mia was up for a few more shots :)
It was such an honor to be a part of Mia's first year and to capture some of her special milestones for her family. I will miss seeing the "H" family every three months & hope they are in need of another family session sooner rather then later.
Miss Mia, you have been a DELIGHT! Happiest birthday to you sweet girl!!!
