Little Luke is about to turn one year old, and this kid is on the move! He’s growing and learning new skills every day, so Mom called me to schedule a photo session for his first birthday. This is such a fun stage in his life for them to capture, and it’s an exciting stage for the entire family too because they’ll be welcoming a baby girl this year.

Since Luke is so active and energetic, we decided that the perfect way to capture his joy would be to photograph a family playdate. So, we set up a time for a beautiful summer morning and headed to a local park to take advantage of the scenery. Family photographers in CT like me are truly fortunate that we have such a stunning landscape that has a different beauty at every season of the year, so outdoor photos are a popular choice.

It turned out to be the right decision because little Luke was right at home. He had a great time playing and interacting with his surroundings. One of my favorite photos shows Luke grabbing a bright yellow flower with a smile of pure, honest delight. The family opted for light blues for their wardrobe, and it was a fantastic complement to the greenery around them and the light dandelion puffs as well.

Of course, we had to include a special tradition one-year-olds love: a cake smash. Luke had a great time tearing into that cake. At one point, and crew of about 60 runners came through the park, with all of them wishing Luke a happy birthday. He was in awe, and while it was a bit distracting at first, Luke managed to get back to enjoying his cake smash.
