Laith turned ONE recently and we celebrated with my very favorite; cake and a bath! I do love these sessions so much because I really never know what I am going to get. With the case of Laith’s session, we started at Oak View Park for some family pictures then transitioned to pictures of just the birthday boy. We then came back to the studio to complete the session. Back in the studio we found out that Laith is one that well, he just doesn’t like to be dirty. He certainly handled it better than some of my other ONE year ond clients but he did at one point get hist foot in the icing on the cake and I think that was the beginning of the end.
I then prepped the galvanized steel tub for the bath portion and Laith really loved the bath. I still think they always are litterally testing the waters when they are in the studio. I encourage them to splash and make a mess and they sometimes start slow and then take off. Laith started splashing and while he didn’t make the biggest mess I have ever seen in the studio.
Either way they do it, the bath images do end up being some of my favorites; especially if they have a melt down during the cake portion. The bath they always end up pulling it together.
