It took me way too long to get around to this post! I had the privilege of photographing this little beauty for her 1st birthday a while back. Sometimes life gets busy so this shoot wasn’t done EXACTLY on her birthday, and I didn’t post it right away either (insert monkey covering face emoji!), but it is still a beautiful milestone to celebrate! (Late or not!)

Aurora is my sweet cousin’s little baby girl and she is a firecracker! She is so sassy and already a little Fancy Nancy. She loves all things Minnie Mouse, sparkles, and baby dolls. As you can tell from the pictures, she also loves frosting (but who can blame her).

Funny story! There was a small issue with the cake, but mama’s quick thinking made this “cake smash” what you see there is really just brown paper covered in icing to LOOK like a cake. AMAZING! I couldn’t tell. Can you?!

It worked out in the end because our refined little lady chose to daintily lick the frosting anyway! Thank you Aileen for giving me the honor of capturing such a special time in your little one’s life!
