I met Adaline for the very first time over Christmas last year. Back then, this sweet, adorable baby was only six months old. This past week, Justin and I were at one of the many Minnesota lakes spending the 4th of July week with the whole family, and we were lucky to witness the day she turned one.
It was so nice relaxing and having some fun at the lakes after our one-week trip to Spain and Portugal, and celebrating Adaline’s first birthday. It was such a sweet, intimate party and I was so happy to be there to capture it. I took tons of pictures of the baby enjoying her first birthday cake. I also had the opportunity to take some cute portraits of Adaline, her sister Lyla, and her cute 6-month old cousin Emil. Her mom and dad asked for some family portraits, which were definitely a MUST, and we got some really nice shots right before the sun started to set.
I am so excited at how cute these portraits turned out! I can probably count with one hand the number of babies (or people, for that matter) with such a naturally infectious smile, and Adaline’s smile definitely shined through in all of the images. I have so many favorites, it was hard for me to decide which ones I wanted to share!
