When this mamma booked her sweet little babe’s Baby Session to document her first birthday, I knew I needed to find something fun and girly. Everywhere I go, I’m scanning for inspiration for shoots and trips to Houston are no different. While shopping for some fabric, I came across this AMAZING sequin backdrop and fell in LOVE. Mom bought the precious little crown and cake topper on Etsy and the smash cake is included in my Baby Sessions for 1 year-olds and it’s from Rao’s. I had a hard time picking my favorites from this session, but here are a few. Enjoy!

I haven’t given anything away in a while, so I think it’s about time, don’t you?! I just have a hankering to make one of my 4,000 fans SUPER happy, so let’s do this!

Instead of giving away a specific type of session, I would like to give away a $500 gift certificate that can be used on any session or product! The only catch is the gift certificate must be redeemed by December 31, 2014.

So, without further ado, scroll down to enter and GOOD LUCK!!
