A baby's first year is filled with "firsts". Their first smile, their first tooth, the first time they sit up on their own, the first time they crawl. Everything is a "first"!! It culminates with that milestone FIRST birthday!! I was so excited that Maggie reached out to me to photograph her daughter Kara's first birthday cake smash. Maggie had told me that she was planning a Barney theme for the party, so I coordinated my setup and it couldn't have been cuter. And Kara is just the most precious little princess who was all smiles from the moment we set her down. It took a little coaxing from her daddy to get her hands messy in her cupcake, but once she figured it out, she was all in!! Surrounded by family members and friends, Kara bounced and giggled the entire time. What a little sweetheart!! Happy First Birthday, sweet Kara, and I wish you many more happy "firsts" as you continue to grow!
