Sanya's 1st Birthday | Cromwell Valley Park Birthday Session


It's hard to believe that I've known Seema since 7th grade. I mean, seriously, where does the time actually go? I absolutely love when I get to photograph families of childhood friends. I never would have imagined that I'd be doing this, photography that is, as a thing. And now I can say that I've captured births and weddings and birthdays for people I've known since I was a kid- it's so surreal and absolutely incredible.

 Anyway, back to the S Family. Sanya's 1st birthday session was perfect. Mom styled everyone so well, starting off the session with the most beautiful Indian garb. Baby Sanya looked like a real life princess. Then she rocked her tutus while she not-so-daintily hulk-smashed her birthday cake. She was hands down the fastest cake-smasher I have ever photographed and I think she may have eaten a total of two bites. But that thing was demolished. Go, Sanya! I loved that mom & dad jumped in there with her for the cake (dad may or may not have eaten more cake than the birthday girl, but my lips are sealed). 

Oh yea, and we can't leave the part about seeing the snake during our session out of this story because that happened. Yikes. Hopefully that will be the first and last.

Seema & Sandesh, thank you so much for having me take part in such a big milestone in your lives! I loved every minute of my time with the three of you. Happy 1st birthday, beautiful girl!
