Nicole O'Neil Photography
I first met little Michelle when she was just a tiny newborn at just over 5 lbs. She was one of the only babies to fit snuggly into the little teacup planter I had (see below). Well, over the year, I have followed her for every major holiday. Her mom is absolutely insane. I can say this and it's okay to say because I have become very good friends with her over the past year and she, along with her entire family and group of friends would agree. ;) I am honestly surprised Michelle still likes me after all of the things we've done to her and the many pictures we've taken. I'm waiting for her to talk and tell me to "get lost!". Instead, she deals with us and seems to get a little more okay with it every time.
Below is a little collage I had put together to wish her a happy birthday on facebook. You may remember the pumpkin and the live bunny her mother supplied.
I love that I followed her so much during her first year, because babies change so fast! Her mom now has a full photographic record of her growth and progress over that first year and even with all the crazy ideas (and there were some CRAZY ones), we got great photos of her.
Now, comes her one year shoot. The regular photos are actually VERY simple compared to everything else we've done. We met at the Training Field with some balloons, benches, and chairs. Now, yes, these were simple...but her cake smash was NOT. Anyone who knows Andrea, knows she makes cupcakes, so of course, we had a cupcake theme and well, you'll see below... (I know all of you who know Andrea will not be surprised that we're already planning for Halloween! ENJOY!
