I can’t believe it!! All of my little newborns from last year are officially turning one! I have had the absolute honor of capturing their lives from their first weeks until their first birthday, and you’ll get to see most of them within the next two weeks! Today, we are celebrating sweet Olivia with a pink themed portrait session and bumble bee first birthday in Winter Garden!
I first met this sweet family in 2018 during one of our dear client’s engagement parties in Winter Garden! Amanda and Joey’s little girl, Amelia, would be turning one soon and they were looking for their forever photographer. Ektaa brought us together and we’ve been celebrating milestones ever since! You can see Amelia’s Wonder Woman themed cake smash session here. A few months after that session, Amanda reached out and told me they were expecting another little girl in September! Olivia arrived in the world on September 25th, 2019, and I had the opportunity to capture her time as a newborn. This year, I got to celebrate Olivia’s first birthday with her and Amanda created the cutest little themes for her: a pink party and a bumble bee cake smash!
Dodging rainstorms that were in the forecast, I met Amanda and the crew at their home in Winter Garden bright and early on Friday morning. Amanda and I set up and decorated for the first theme! She had a beautiful pink and gold birthday sign, pink and gold hanging streamers, as well as pink pom poms and balloons. She also had one of my favorite props, the ONE boxes filled with balloons! Olivia had so much fun playing with the assortment of balloons, while also standing with her boxes. Her sister, Amelia, was a bit sad that she was missing out on the fun, and wanted to join in! The two of them played for a few minutes with the setup. Then, Amanda and Joey joined in for a couple photos!
Next, we set up for one of the cutest themes I’ve seen yet: a bumble bee first birthday and cake smash! Little Olivia was dressed in an adorable bumble bee outfit complete with a black tutu, little antennas, and tiny wings. Amanda also had a bumble bee birthday banner, a yellow and black tassel banner, and an assortment of balloons. Olivia’s birthday cake was a yellow and black polka dot cake!
It’s always interesting to me how different children react to their first birthday cake. Some absolute love the sugar and mess, while others won’t go near it! Olivia was one who wasn’t too fond of the cake smash portion, unlike her sister who devoured her cake! Although their were many tears, Olivia was still the cutest little bumble bee!
Amanda and Joey, thank you for having me back for another session! I just adore these little girls and I can’t wait to see where they go in life. Here is a sneak peek into Olivia’s first birthday and cake smash session in Winter Garden! Enjoy!
