I’ve been photographing Jenna’s family for years now and they are some of my favorite people. I photographed Jessica’s maternity session when she was pregnant with Jenna, Jenna’s lifestyle newborn session, Christmas photos, Valentine’s Day photos, and now her 1st birthday session! (Yep, she’s in front of my camera A LOT so you probably recognize her!) We had planned on doing most of Jenna’s birthday session outdoors but the weather has been crazy here for the past few weeks and we have had a crazy amount of rain. I recently bought some studio equipment so we did a few outdoors at her house when it wasn’t raining and then set up my studio setup and did her official birthday photos. Jenna had a BLAST eating her cake and playing in it! Jessica also booked a sleepy time session with me for Jenna so after she had her cake (and a bath!) we headed up to her room and I documented her last night before turning one years old. Jessica and Trey read Jenna On The Night You Were Born (sweetest thing ever, I may have teared up a little) and then fed her a snack before bed. Jessica put Jenna to bed and we waited for her to get good and asleep. We headed in, took a few pictures, woke her up, got her back in bed, waited for her to fall asleep, went back in, took a few pictures, and woke her up again… 😉 That’s just how sleepy sessions go.
It was such a great night and I am so thankful Jessica and Trey have chosen me to document sweet Jenna’s life! Happy birthday Jenna!!
