Chattanooga Birthday Party Photographer – Pumpkins & Chevron First Birthday

I don’t often step outside my role as a newborn photographer.  When I do, it’s usually for the families of “my” babies.  This time, I got to be a Chattanooga birthday party photographer – and it was so much fun!  Easton’s amazing mom put together a stunning party with an orange and aqua theme tied together with pumpkins and her signature print, chevrons.  It’s an absolute Pinterest dream!  It was so special to be there – I  had photographed Easton’s birth the year before, his newborn photos, and every three months up to his first birthday.

In case you’re wondering, credit for the absolutely delicious and adorable cake goes to Sifted Bakery in Cleveland, Tennessee and the precious cake pops are the work of CoCo’s Sweet Boutique.  (A word of caution: they are ADDICTING.)

I also have to mention the pumpkin dip.  I am hooked on the pumpkin dip.  I prefer it with the graham crackers, but wafers are delicious too… as, for that matter, are spoons… *ahem*  If you’re planning ahead for your fall get-together, you can find that recipe here!

Yes, the big sister and her friends are wearing coordinating outfits.  Of course they are!  Whitney and her amazing friends have such amazing attention to detail!

Sometimes, a boy just needs a break.  Easton’s making a run for it!  I think he was too kissed-out and needed a minute to himself!

Big sister and her amazing smile and another one of “my” babies snoozing peacefully during the party!

Happy Birthday, little buddy!  I can’t get over what a handsome, sweet little toddler you’ve grown into!  I’m so thankful to have been a part of your first year and I am so grateful to your mama for asking me to capture your special day, a year later!

Love,
Melissa

Chattanooga Newborn Photographer – Sweet Baby Carolina

I may be a Chattanooga newborn photographer, but sometimes my clients come from further away.  Miss Carolina traveled from Dunlap to visit me!  I am so, so grateful that she did, too!  She was just such a precious baby girl.  Actually, their whole family is just fantastic!  Her big brother might be one of the sweetest little guys in the universe and mom and dad’s professions are both in service to the community (thank you both for all you do!) and they just put a smile on my face!  I love taking photos: truth.  I love babies: truth.  But one of the parts of my job that just warms my heart is getting to know people like Carolina’s family.  My path probably would never have crossed theirs if not for their newborn session.  I can absolutely assure you that my life is a bit brighter for the brief time I spent with them.  And that?  That is awesome.

Baby kisses!  Oh my goodness – daddies and their little girls together make for a precious photo, but when you are able to get a little miss kissing on her daddy, it’s about more than I can handle!

Can you see the adoration in this photo?  I was changing lenses and had given big brother no instruction at all – I just looked up and saw him gazing lovingly at his little sister.  Look out, boys, this big brother isn’t going to let a single one of you break her heart!

Goodness, she is just too perfect.  Let’s talk about that head of hair.  My three-year-old doesn’t have a mane like that!  I wonder where she gets it…?

Oh.  Nevermind.  Her momma could be a model.  Makes sense when you see them together, doesn’t it?  Actually, a lot of things make sense when you see them together.  My daughters saw this image and said, “Mommy, I like her hair better than Ariel’s hair.”  (Talk about a compliment!)  And then they said, “She really loves her little baby, doesn’t she?”  Yes, kiddos, she absolutely does.

Thanks for coming down to Chattanooga to see me, Miss Carolina!  I think you’re a doll and I just love your family! Please come see me again soon!

Love,

Melissa
