Virginia Cake Smash Photographer | Elizabeth’s Winter ONEderland Session

I loved this Winter ONEderland theme for baby Elizabeth’s first birthday photo session. It’s so appropriate for the one-year milestone. That first year is filled with wonder both for the parents and for the baby. Parents are amazed at how much their little ones grow from day to day during that first year and watch...
