Thanks Dave and Stef for a great day with your daughter. 

It all started when we got the call. Breonna, this little angel from Washington was going to be in Butte over the 4th of July for her first birthday. Right away I started think about a photo shoot cause well that's just what I do. I came to the conclusion that what this little lady needed was a cake smash photo session and I knew just the guy to do it.

The call was made to the family, several props were purchased, (thanks Hobby Lobby), the car was stuffed floor to ceiling with photography gear and we were off like a heard of turtles.

Many hours, hamburgers and much birthday cake later we were ready to shoot. With the help of my two beautiful assistants, (My wife and daughter), we laid out the scene, props and all and began to shoot. This little lady was a trooper, even with her bad allergies she actually seemed to enjoy being in the spotlight and having her picture taken. It didn't hurt that she was liking the cake as well.

After finishing with the cake we thought we would giver her a rest. Honestly I was told to give her a rest, once I start shooting my love and passion for the art takes over and you pretty much have to make me leave a session. I tend to exhaust a location and my subjects. You can ask Sidney, I shot her and her family last fall and she said I broke her smile. Here is a link to that session if you want to check it out.

There were a couple more props I wanted to try out and the lighting was getting just right, so I begged and pleaded with the powers that be to let me shoot her again and my persistence (annoyance) paid off. I gave her mother a different dress to change her into and went to set up the hot air balloon scene.

Honestly I don't know who had more fun, me, Breonna or the parents and people watching. What I do know is we were all laughing at her expressions and she was laughing at us laughing at her as you can see in the image below. I hope I am fortunate enough to have sessions with her until I'm too old to pick up my camera.

As the last of the light drained away we said our goodbyes, loaded the car floor to ceiling again and hit the road for our three hour drive back to Bridger. What a great day, I love this job and would drive 6 hours one way do do a shoot. It doesn't matter if it's a portrait session, a senior, maternity, new born, family, engagement, sport, landscape or wildlife I love it all and refuse to be pigeonholed into picking just one category.
