I loved meeting this family for their daughter’s first birthday milestone photo session! They were so warm and genuine and shared with me that they wanted an outdoors location for the photos. As their The Woodlands Child Milestone Photographer, I brought them to one of my favorite spots at the Woodlands, a beautiful forest pathway with tall trees that allows the afternoon like to shine through just so and giving a beautiful glow to the pictures.
Happy Birthday Sweet Aiya!
It was important for them to have some photos which captured the specialness of this moment. Mom shared that Aiya’s birth had been five years in the waiting. What a blessing this little one truly is! When she was born last fall, she was premature at 31 weeks. Luckily, this gorgeous princess is healthy as can be and is so full of life as she celebrates her birthday! We have some beautiful images of this family together, mom and her mini-me, and of daddy loving on his little girl.
Aiya is a gorgeous little girl, and mom styled her in a burgundy outfit with a little faux-fur vest and animal print headband! The colors were perfect and so wonderfully coordinated with mom’s flowing maxi dress and dad’s jeans and dark red shirt. We had a mini birthday cake and golden cake-topper with us into the session, but no cake smash for us today!
A Flower Swing Fit for a Princess
I was able to set up my over-sized flower hoop for Aiya to sit in, and she looked amazing perched up against the rustic grapevine. Such a perfect combination of her classic beauty and the natural setting of the forest!
I always ask my clients what they hope to remember from this photo session with me. They explained, they really just want to remember her personality at this age – how happy she is, her laughs, her hugs, and how much more beautiful Aiya becomes each day.
Who wouldn’t love to be sweet Aiya’s The Woodlands Child Milestone Photographer? i know she sure did brighten my afternoon!
