A boy, a balloon & bubbles {John is ONE}

I was super excited when this family asked me to take pictures of this little man’s milestone.. And as with every session, some challenges presented due to the weather. We had already planned to do the smash cake indoors, but with a cloudy rainy day we had poor light inside… We thought about re-scheduling, but I had to try one last thing before making the decision… We moved closer to a sliding glass door, and using my handy reflector we managed to create good enough light for the shoot.

I think it worked much better because of the amazing backdrop of the gorgeous piece of furniture they had there. We got some pictures of him prior to starting the messy fun!…. At the end we wanted to do pictures outside in a wash tub, but we had to improvise, and tried the same idea but indoors and with bubbles…. the result? amazing & adorable pictures…. you be the judge…

Happy Birthday John!
