Look who is one! Little C is not so little anymore…and he’s ready for his smash cake session.

But first…I just have to share some of his cutie pie first birthday portraits that show his personality (without all the cake!)…from huge smiles…

To a little mischief…

To thoughtful and observing…C has quite a range of expressions.

He was so excited to hang out in brother’s reading corner and show off the book he received at his first birthday party. His gifts all centered around books, and his parents gave him an extra special one – Oh, the Places You’ll Go – by Dr. Seuss.

He and his brother, W, played through much of the session as we captured lifestyle images for his first birthday.

And, of course, we captured some posed images of the whole family.

You can tell he was pleased as punch with himself. 🙂

We took the family for a walk in the woods, and C cuddled with his mom while they played in the leaves.

What a little sweetie! He looks like he’s saying, “this is MY mom!”

The “Itsy Bitsy Spider” was a big hit, of course.

Afterwards, C and his dad took a stroll …

And had their fair share of playtime, too!

Big brother was on hand to teach him how to drive, as W loves anything that has wheels – especially cars.

I think C is developing into quite the NASCAR fan, too.

And yep, we had to capture a black and white image of the baby feet – they grow so fast.

Don’t let little C fool you – he may look like he’s not going to get too close to the cake…

Brother helped a little at the end – but C didn’t leave much to share. He amazed me at how much he loved it!
