Lucy First Birthday Session

I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter First Birthday Session than this little girl! Lucy looks like a Precious Moments figurine, and her session was almost too hard to narrow down! She looked absolutely adorable in every picture! I loved getting to see the feisty side of her too, it’s always the best part of my job when I get to capture kids just being themselves!

It’s clear that Lucy’s family adores her, and she has a very special story that shows just how much they waited just for her! Mom battled infertility for years before Lucy came along. In her own words she shares that they “Prayed and prayed. Wished on stars. Dropped coins in every fountain. What we didn’t know at the time, was there was a reason why we weren’t supposed to get pregnant on our own. “ Around that time during their fertility treatments, Mom and Dad discovered they were both carriers of the gene for Cystic Fibrosis, and their journey got even harder. After a round of IVF with genetic screening, only Lucy’s embryo was healthy enough to implant. After a tough pregnancy and delivery, her mom says it was absolutely worth it to have this little girl in their lives. “For us, Lucy has always been in the works.  We just had to have faith and put the work into making her a reality.  I believe you can speak something good into this world if you work at it and have hope.  Sometimes yours prayers may not be answered right away or in the way you want them to be.  But life can turn out so much sweeter than you ever imagined.  “

Big sister Lizzie posed with her little sister, and looked just beautiful in her blue dress. It’s obvious that Lizzie loves Lucy, and I can only imagine how much fun they’re going to have together. Our session ended with my absolute favorite thing: a smash cake. We chose a bright and colorful color palette for the session, perfect to set off her dark hair and big blue eyes! Beautiful dusty rose flowers and dress for the portraits and pink and orange icing on the cake make it feel bright, and vibrant. Just like Lucy!
