Enzo Is Back, He’s One, and He’s Pretty Awesome!

Man do we love one year olds.  They are so fun at that stage as their little personalities are developing and this dude – Enzo – has personality to burn!  Plus he’s a hunka chunka and we had a blast with him and his mommy Ashley for his one year photos!  He was here last with his sibs when he was 6 months old and this time around he had an awesome multi layered birthday cake with him.  So the stage was set….

Enzo is back

First Ashley had Enzo stylin’ before we got to the cake and we broke out the blue/grey backdrop for a few portraits – we’ll start with those!

Enzo

Okay how yummy is he?

We also have some fun behind the scenes with the fun Facebook Live we did – here’s the replay:

And one more on the blue in the basket… 

Enzo

Haha!  So cute!!!  How great is that bowtie?

Let him eat cake!

Now it was time to get to the cake!  And what a cake – check it out… you can feel the anticipation!  Lol…

Enzo

We’ll leave you with one more as Enzo was getting his feast on!

Enzo

Now that’s a happy kid.

And there you have it!  To be one and awesome – that’s Enzo!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!

Wow – Jeralyn Is ONE, And What A Year It’s Been Photographing Her!

Boy does a year go by fast…  this story is one of the more epic tales in Frameable Faces lore to be sure and we continue to tell it here.  It started with an “emergency” maternity session phone call from Nick and Jen that you can read about here.  Another photography studio’s mistake became the start of a friendship for us and some memorable moments with Jeralyn (who was once known lovingly in the Frameable Faces community as the “sharting baby” because of a hilarious little poop mishap during her newborn session that you can see and read about here)!  Now Jeralyn is ONE and she returned to the studio for an adorable photo session from which we want to share a few images with you!

Jeralyn Is ONE!

So we have some great stuff to show you here.  We love doing “baby plans” where our peeps come in for maternity, newborn, 6 month, and one year photos because we get to be a part of such a wonderful and exciting year, and then at the end we get to put together some stages – like a “watch me grow” storyboard!  Like this:

Jeralyn Is ONE

Newborn, 6 months, and one year!!!

So much fun – perfectly displayed on a wall printed to 10″ x 30″ in a frame!

As for the rest of the one year session here are some of the other highlights…

Jeralyn Is ONE

How beautiful is she?  Loving the hair…  🙂

Jeralyn also likes blocks.  Who doesn’t like blocks?

Jeralyn Is ONE

Actually props in general are fun…

Jeralyn Is ONE

We also have some fun behind the scenes (of course)…  let’s start with the replay from Facebook Live:

At this point we broke out the sari that we used for all three sessions as you saw above in the storyboard – so pretty as the backdrop for this adorable close up!

Jeralyn Is ONE

LOVE the thumb…

What’s great about our Periscope replay is often when people say you should photograph the parents being silly trying to get the kids to smile……well we got Jen at the beginning of this broadcast.  Haha!  If you want to join in the fun on Periscope download the app and follow us at @FrameableFaces here or if you just want to check it out from Twitter you can do that here.

The last thing we’ll leave you with you could say is the coup de grâce from this session…

Jeralyn Is ONE

Just all around cuteness with the one year expressions!  So yes Jeralyn is ONE and it really has been a delightful year photographing her!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!!!

One Year Olds Love…Veggie Sticks? FOUR Year Olds Love Cake!

One year olds love… veggie sticks???  More on that in a minute…

Yes we had two of our favorite brothers back again for younger brother’s one year old photos and older brother’s four year old photos, and we planned a cake smash as we often do to celebrate and capture a first birthday.  Meanwhile we have been photographing these guys since before the older brother was born with maternity photos when he was in utero!  We are always excited to have them back – their sessions are usually memorable for various reasons and this adventure was no exception!

veggie sticks

Our one year old was pretty set on hanging out with his mommy and didn’t really want to be sitting for pictures on his own at first, so we needed to take the extreme measure of “sending her away” – haha.  She took big brother with her down the hall to Toyology while Daddy and we tried to distract the birthday boy and maybe get him to focus on something other than mommy.  That worked!  Tricks of the trade ya know…

 veggie sticks

Then it was time for the cake smash which all one year olds love right?  Uh…. right?  Well, maybe not!  Everyone tried to get him to indulge and he just wasn’t having it.  He opted for the veggie sticks!  Smart kid!  You can never have enough vegetables in your diet right?  Maybe he’ll be a doctor or a nutritionist or a chef!  We even tried putting the veggie sticks in the cake!  Meanwhile big brother wasn’t going to let a perfectly good cake go to waste, so he dug in!  This made for a lot of laughs as you can imagine.

Here is a fun vine with some highlights of the session.

A Beautiful Little Girl On A Warm Summer Day….And A Cake SMASH!

A beautiful little girl on a warm summer day….and a cake SMASH is the best combination! We were thrilled to welcome this little princess back to the studio after she was here with her big brother as a flower pot for her six month milestone!  Maybe you remember the post about the Dapper Dude and Baby Blossom?  This time around we celebrated her birthday in style!  We had a solid two hour window in the morning before her nap and we headed out to one of our favorite locations to get some pretty outdoor shots.  It took her a minute to decide whether she felt like taking pictures on this day but once she made up her mind she really was a superstar…

cake smash

Her mom and grandma came along and we all enjoyed ourselves.  They had her dressed in the most beautiful outfits!  There were plenty of birds singing, several people and a doggy came by to say hello – just a perfect summer day.

There is a lot to work with at this location including this bridge that we really love…

Here is a little behind the scenes vine of the action – our apologies for the little blur in the middle – not sure what my iPhone was thinking for a second there, but this will give you an idea of how the session went and you will see where the real fun started…

Life Is Yummy When You’re One And Surrounded By Family

What we have here is one beautiful family!  The baby was about to turn one which is always a great milestone for pictures…..and a cake smash of course!  More on that later…

Family Picture at Frameable Faces Photography

Aren’t they a great looking crew?  The brothers are really nice young men as well!
