Archie Turns One! | Fort Collins Child Photographer | Cake Smash Photos

August 5, 2018

I have had the pleasure of working with the wonderful Aguirres family for several years now. First, I shot Kerra and Matt’s engagement portraits, then their Highland Meadows wedding, two maternity sessions, Archie’s newborn photos, and finally, I was their Fort Collins child photographer earlier this year. We captured these when Archie was technically 13 months old. They almost didn’t do this session, because they were past his birthday. But I am positive they will not regret having these photos in the coming years. They are only one once after all! I am looking forward to another session, with the whole family later this year πŸ™‚

Since this was still technically winter, we were looking for a location that didn’t look too brown and blah! We decided onΒ Rolland Moore Park. This worked well, although the wind picked up and poor Archie definitely started to get chilly. But once he tasted his cake from Oh So Sweet Cakes, his mood picked up and the goosebumps were (most likely) worth it…for that sugary sweet goodness!

We lucked out with the “hot air” balloon shot because it really was quite windy! And Archie only lasted in the basket for about one minute πŸ™‚ He is an active toddler after all!

He was sooo not feeling it at first. But once we encouraged the cake eating, things got a lot better for this dapper little dude!

Thanks again Aguirres family, and especially Mr. ONEderful, Archie! I loved photographing you again. It was so wonderful to see how much you have grown in the past year. And loved to see your little personality come out during your session.

Another wintery session is coming to the blog soon. Carlos and Alli’s couple’s session at the gorgeous Dillon Ice Castles is next. Alli’s red dress against the blue ice…ah-mazing!! Check back, I promise you don’t want to miss it πŸ™‚ If you are looking for your own Colorado portrait photographer, contact me now and let’s get it on the calendar! Have a wonderful Sunday, see you back here next week.
