Teddy Bear Picnic Themed First Birthday Photoshoot


Teddy Bear Picnic Themed First Birthday Photoshoot

We first met this little guy at our Holiday ExtravagaBalooza or whatever those three days were… three days of non-stop meeting new people, smiling, laughing, and capturing special holiday memories. Johnny was amazing, that I ever wrote it in bold letters. His parents decided to give it another go for his first birthday session.

Mommy chose the Teddy Bead Picnic theme. Although we have a lot of different themes and backgrounds, we do encourage families for something unique and special… we’ll gladly do it if it is plausible and this Little Bear was one of those plausible. I got to the studio about 2.5 hours before the actual session. IfΒ  Angela and I were there together, getting to the studio an hour before would have been more than sufficient but when I go alone, I like extra and start playing with lights and settings and see what I can do uniquely for this session. Finally, I looked at the clock and I had over an hour to wait – ok so it’s a new theme and I was nervous that would need extra time; better be over-prepared than under.

Finally, our model arrived. Mommy chose the mini session, of just Johnny alone, she also baked her own cake. C’mon, if you’re bringing your own cake, you have to bring tea & coffee. We started with pre-cake, clean images

After a few minutes of getting AWESOME shots, we introduced the cake and this dude RIPPED through it like a hungry bulldozer.

It’s rare to see little kids going To town on the cake like this, but he did and I couldn’t be happier to have our studio participate in this occasion and capture these special moments for the family.
