Earlier this year I had the pleasure of creating Kaia’s first birthday portraits at Arnold Arboretum. I met this happy little crew during a mini-session last fall, and I was so excited to get to spend a full session with them in the spring. Before we got to cake-smashing, we spent some time taking family photos in the perfect early evening light at the Arboretum. Big sister Mila picked all the buttercups she could find and graciously shared them with everyone. Kaia showed off her newly-acquired walking skills, and there was a lot of giggling as little girls were spun around and tickled.
Kaia had the most adorable Cat in the Hat outfit (thanks to Etsy!) for her official cake-smash photos. Mila did her best to convince her little sister that cake is delicious, but at the end of the day, Kaia was much happier munching on a Mum-Mum then getting her hands messy!
