Ariel's Oh The Places You'll Go, Hot Air Balloon Cake Smash!

I love when babies come back to see me for their first birthday! In this case, I took Ariel’s Mommy’s maternity photos, AND newborn photos, AND now her first birthday cake smash! How fun! I love love love it. Here’s her beautiful Mommy’s maternity session from August 2018;

Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous? I mean, WOW! And those turned out incredible even with us rushing them in about 10 minutes, with police having to come unlock her car (where she accidentally locked her other outfit in… oops!) It was eventful haha!

I loved these so much, she’s actually featured on a wooden print in my studio as well. SWOON!

Then her newborn session;

She is absolutely adorable right? I love this sweet girl.

Now for the main event here, her BIRTHDAY SESSION! We celebrated with a hot air balloon setup, with pastel colors going on -

Then we had Ariel tot around for us and show off her little baby wobble she has going on. She’s full of smiles, and just the sweetest faces ever!

& then the cake! WHICH SHE LOVED and squished, and smashed, and then I popped a balloon that made her cry with the cutest little cry face (I’m so sorry Ariel haha I still feel bad!) The cake is from the lovely Market Street Bakery, located on Market Street in downtown Mabank Texas, in the heart of East Texas.

Thank you so much, Yessenia, for choosing me to capture all these beautiful memories for you, it has been such a joy and I’m so lucky to have clients like you in my life.

Happy Birthday Ariel! It has been so lovely seeing you grow up this first year.

With love

Dallas Cowboys First Birthday Cake Smash

Dallas came back to TLP to celebrate his first birthday in style with a DALLAS COWBOYS themed cake smash! How fun is that!? Before I show you the birthday session, you may recognize this cute boy if you’re familiar with my work and have been to my studio, but he’s changed a lot in a year! He is the sweet baby in the cowboy hat featured on my studio walls in a huge round wooden print! (One of my FAVORITE images ever!)

The cake used is from the wonderful Market Street Bakery in Mabank Texas, from our little Market Street in downtown Mabank. If you stop in, tell Melissa I sent ya!

LOVED this session, thank you so much to Dallas and his parents for coming in for another session, it’s been so wonderful taking photos for you since your wedding, and now from newborn to first birthday for this little guy!

Can’t wait to see you for Christmas photos!

I hope everyone is having a great end to their summer festivities, school is starting up for most of us with school age children, and this Texas heat has us scrounging for soaks of the last bit of summertime we can enjoy with our little ones.

Stay tuned to the TLP Tribe group on Facebook for advertisements for the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons!
