A Little Birthday Girl | chicago studio photographer

Blair's mama wanted to celebrate and showcase her daughter's first birthday with a studio session. She came up with a 'twinkle, twinkle' theme, and I helped customize a little background montage on one of my chalkboard walls in the new studio/playroom.

And of course, no birthday celebration could be complete without some birthday balloons! (We just kept them white to keep little Miss Blair the 'star' of the show. Pun intended.)

It also included her beloved elephant, white balloons, and a delicious strawberry cake from Sweet Mandy B's (probably my faaaavorite bakery here in Chicago!). Oh, and an adorable pink tutu...!

I think Blair thought it was delicious! (We couldn't help but steal a bite too- and we agree- yuuuummy!)

Thanks for the extra calories, Blair! Now I'm off to the gym to burn off that delicious buttercream icing...
