It’s time for another summer throwback! Today, we have my two favorite twin boys, Ari and Kai, for their superhero first birthday session. You might remember them from their newborn session last February, their extended family get together, their trip to Splitsville, or even their Epcot adventure! I have spent the entire year with these two munchkins and I am so so thankful for their family. Ari and Kai turned one in February and I can’t believe how much they have grown!
Ari and Kai had the CUTEST themes for their first birthday session. The twins started their superhero first birthday session in superhero onesies and a giant basket of balloons, made by their mom, Puja. They loved playing with the balloons and the taste of the basket (we don’t judge, boys). Puja and Michael played the boys’ favorite music during the session and they were dancing machines!
Ari and Kai’s second outfit represented their parents! Puja and Michael spent their honeymoon in Hawaii 10 years ago. They had planned to go back for their 10 year anniversary, but then their dream came true when the boys came along. Their anniversary was 10 days after Ari and Kai’s birthday, so instead of traveling, they celebrated their first birthday at home. The twins wore matching Disney Hawaiian shirts to commemorate this special moment in their parents’ lives. They posed with their family and lounged in front of their “year in review” banner.
Finally, as the storm clouds rolled in, the boys changed into their suspenders and superhero bottoms for a photo booth experience. Complete with a cityscape and props, Ari and Kai rocked their way to the end of their session. Unfortunately, Ari had an allergic reaction to his actual first birthday cake, so we had to skip their cake smash portion of the superhero first birthday session. We will make up for it next year though!!
I absolutely adore this family and I am so thankful to have spent the year with them (plus a bonus engagement party for their aunt, Ektaa!!). I have fallen in love with these boys and can’t wait to see them grow even more. Until the next one, Ari and Kai!! We love you!!
