Our sweet and spunky little Isla turned ONE on April 18th! We celebrated the day with treats, gifts, extra snuggles...AND a one year cake smash, of course! What kind of photog mom would I be if I didn't?
Dog/human friendly cake was made by yours truly via a recipe I found online. It was tasty and Isla enjoyed it in moderation. The number one on top of her cake was also used in her last sister's tenth birthday taco smash session and we thought that was pretty special and nostalgic.
I may sound like a broken record, but I always try to incorporate sentimental pieces into any of my sessions and highly encourage my clients to do the same. Therefore, I also included my Grandma Nonn's hanker-chief from her childhood as April 18th is also her birthday! That's where Isla's middle name (Alice) comes from. Two very special ladies!
Another interesting fact about Isla's name is that it is pronounced as "Ees-lah" or as we personally pronounce it, "Iss-lah." It means island in Spanish and we say she is our little bit of paradise. We also call her Izzie for fun (she responds to either name) and most others do so as well. Her nickname ends in an "ie" the same way my name does - I just had to make it difficult. ;) A lot of thought was put into her name so the pronunciation of it is very intentional.
One more first birthday shout out to our ONE-derful little Izzie. She has added so much love and happiness to our hearts and home. Life is so much better with her in it and for that we are grateful. Feeling truly blessed she is ours.
[This was my first time constructing a balloon garland and it was not the easiest until I got the hang of it. Thank goodness it turned out pretty good! These will be available to add onto any indoor milestone session at an additional cost. Contact AJP for details.]
