Planning your baby’s first birthday is so much fun. Of course, after you get over the initial shock that it’s already been an entire year, that is! It really is true when they tell you to soak it all in because it goes by in the blink of an eye. Those milestones pile up and get checked off quicker than any of us like to admit. It’s definitely bittersweet.

Celebrating Sweet McKenzie

Often my sweet little one year old clients celebrate their birthday with a cake smash, but Mckenzie went a slightly different route. This little babe celebrated with donuts, and it was almost as much fun to plan as it was to photograph. She was a tiny little thing full of giggles. Her smile lit up the whole room, and her laughter was contagious. She was a big fan of clapping, and that was one adorable sign she gave us that she approved of her donut set-up. She loved the donuts, but she was even more enamored with the sprinkles. They were everywhere, and it was a blast! Aside from the donut smash, we got some beautiful portraits of Mckenzie in a dainty little basket, and atop a sweet white rocking horse. I know her family will treasure these photos forever, as the years continue to fly and this precious girl keeps growing before their eyes.
