make a wish! { jamaica plain, MA | children’s photographer }

Now that all the holiday cards have gone out and the photo gifts have been given, I think it’s safe to blog about this fun first birthday cake smash I photographed last year.

I loved everything about this session.  Sweet Carya was dressed to the nines and mom & dad put so much thought and effort into the details.  The Chinese Maple tree did it’s part and made a gorgeous backdrop for our portraits.  We met at the Arnold Arboretum just an hour before sunset, which is when you can capture, without a doubt, the most perfect light of the day.

We always  make room for Elvis the dog in some of our family portraits….I think he was a little sad that attention was not fully on him for this session!

Carya was a perfect lady, daintily taking little bites of her cupcake.  She kept making the cutest mmm-mmm noises while she was eating…

Hurray for turning one!!
