Chloe One Year Milestone at Occoquan Regional Park

Oh how time flies! I remember Chloe coming into my studio for her newborn photos and I specifically remember she had the prettiest eyes and lashes. Now at a year old Chloe is just a doll! She is such a pretty little girl and I’m a bit envious of her amazing long lashes! Chloe rocked her session. We started by getting some fun photos of her before we let her dig into her cake. I found my new favorite spot to photograph by that fence! I just loved all the greenery around it.

Once we got some portraits of Chloe, we set up the cakesmash area and let her dig in. Her mom made her cake and had the most brilliant idea! Instead of using red food coloring for the icing, she used beet juice! Her mom said she couldn’t really taste the beet juice flavor which is great! Perfect color and no strange icing taste.

With most little girls, Chloe tapped the cake to feel it first. Once she touched it a few more times and tasted it, she started digging in! You could tell she was loving that cake and all eyes on her. Chloe held her “ONE” cake topper the entire session. She enjoyed waving it around and holding it high up in the air.
