This session was a mix of many wonderful things — beautiful baby, amazing location, vintage flair, girly accessories and even a bit rustic! If I were to sit here and name some of my favorite things, you could find them in these photos. A huge amount of credit needs to go to this sweet girl’s mama — she put SO much time and effort into planning the outfits, the accessories, and selecting the utmost PERFECT location. If you have not ever been to Apotheca Flower & Tea Shoppe in Goffstown, NH, I suggest you drop whatever you are doing and head there right now… (or in the morning since there’s a good chance I’m posting this late at night!) Reflective of the style of this shoot, Apotheca is a mix of all things beautiful, vintage and unique. From their selection of teas, food and drinks, to their AMAZING floral design, jewelry and decor, to the cozy little nooks all around the shop, this place has it all. You will never want to leave — I promise. They were so awesome during our shoot – basically letting us spread out everywhere and use all of their cool furniture. I think I could shoot there a hundred times and still keep finding different things to use. Sending out a huge THANK YOU to them! Without further ado… the birthday girl…
Little miss is usually a very happy, smiley baby — she was a bit serious this day but part of me is glad for the expressions here – they just seem to fit.
We really enjoyed going all over the shop – so many wonderful places to sit. I can imagine some people spend hours there reading and sipping their favorite drink. The regulars poured in and out while we moved around taking photos all over.
Baby girl with her proud mama and dadda!
Okay, can we just talk about this outfit for a minute??? GET OUT. I LOVE IT. And on a whim, I grabbed this bonnet from my prop stash at the last second, it must have been fate.
Lovin’ on her bear.
No first birthday is complete without a cake! Yet again, Chickadee Hill Cakes steals my heart… and my waistline (I got to take some of the cake home! ) As suspected, little miss was very dainty with her cake and there was definitely no smashing… but she did enjoy the frosting! (As did I, best buttercream ever!!)
