the birthday girl | austin child photographer lyndsay stradtner

As I finish up their order I wanted to come back and share a few more of Miss Inara’s first birthday session.  You can see her sneak peek here.  I’m going to start off this post with my favorite of the day….

She’s grown so much since I saw her last.  I just can’t get over how much babies change that first year, it’s crazy!  Some of my most favorite shots ever are the ones from her 6 month session loving on her momma.  That is one thing that has not changed.

She had so many new tricks, including walking!  I was impressed, especially when we took off her shoes and it didn’t slow her down one single bit.  She’s fast!

and I love this series of chair photos, she looks like such a big girl!

look, another new trick, clapping…

silly goose

Then it was time to change into her birthday outfit.  Get ready for this…..can you believe her mom made this parasol??  It’s so gorgeous, it needed a shot of it’s own!  Loooove it!

another fave

time for cake.  yummy!  she wasn’t really a fan of cake getting messy.

the feet up in the air crack me up

Happy Birthday big girl!!!  And a super big thank you for bringing Ty, Taryn and Teagan some smarties all the way from Canada!!  So thoughtful!
