I had some of the cutest babies to come to see me in my studio for Valentine’s Day.  We had so much fun with these mini sessions that I am going to add a “Vintage Baby Mini Session” to my lineup for limited release through the Summer!  More details below, but first, let’s ooh and ahh over these adorable little sweethearts!

It’s always fun meeting new clients and is one of the reasons why I love being a Louisville KY Baby Photographer.  I met Kinsley and her mother at her 9 month milestone session back in the Fall.  She has sass for days, a smile that puts sunshine to shame and the biggest brown eyes I’ve ever seen.  In one word, gorgeous. She came into the studio for her 1st birthday cake smash session, which was themed to the tune of Minnie Mouse.  Now, I don’t know where her mom tracked down all of these adorable Minnie Mouse props, but she gets a gold star for being the most prepared mother ever for a session!  She showed up with a whole suitcase full of themed accessories, no really, I’m.not.kidding… Minnie Mouse suitcase to boot!

I generally like to start my cake smash sessions off with the formal shots and cutesy prop shots and then on to the main event.  Here’s a little how our session flowed in order below…

You already know she gets whatever she wants with eyes like THESE… 3P9B1414

Then we moved on to some prop shots from my typical session styling:
