The Princess and the Pea

This week I had the best treat ever…I got to photograph little Raya’s first birthday 🙂  Absolutely precious! Her mama, Lynn, created some of the most darling decor I’ve ever seen and it was just perfect for these photos. The little one banner was definitely my favorite, but as evidenced below, the balloons got Raya’s vote. Raya also had family in town and we were able to take some really special photos with her grandmas and her aunt. It was perfect! And the cake…I thought for sure that she would dive right in, but she decided it was more fun to poke at it and play it like a drum. Apparently, her snack of choice is peas so after a few appeared on the cake, she was loving it, making these my favorite cake smash pictures ever 🙂  Tim, Lynn, and Raya, enjoy your photos and a big Happy Birthday to all of you! xoxo Merrilee
