Lucy is 1! | Raleigh Family Photographer

Oh.My.Goodness!  The cuteness overload associated with this session was almost too much to handle.  I have had the opportunity to do several sessions with this family and I just love them more and more each time- and the girls are just so natural in front of the camera- watch out momma!  

This session was all about Lucy's first birthday! We went to Baileywick Park in Raleigh to start the session and did some family pictures as well as individual ones of the kids.  Since Lucy isn't much of a cake gal (I only wish that was me!!) we went back to their house and instead of doing a Smash Cake, Lucy and family participated in a painting project with homemade paint!  It was a perfect idea and the shots from this session that we were able to get were absolutely priceless.  The painting was a number 1 that was outlined in painters tape- so that once the paint around dried, the tape would be peeled off. I have seen the final result and it is really awesome.  The best part of it is that the family will not only have these pictures as a memory of Lucy's birthday but they will also always have the final product from the painting.

I had so many favorite pictures from this session so it was hard to pick just a couple to share with everyone, but here are some!  Looking forward to doing something like this again in the future!  Happy Birthday Lucy!!
