I’ve heard it said that all babies are good but some babies are also “easy”. Sloane certainly checks both boxes. At almost one, she makes me feel like a stand up comedian who’s crushing it. Even with my mask on, she gets all my jokes. Well, after the initial 2-3 minutes, where she just looked at me quizzically, mouth agape, as if to say “Hmmm… I think I like you but then again, you might be an alien from outer space. The jury is still out.”
Sloane’s awesome mama had a master plan to celebrate her daughter’s upcoming birthday with a unicorn, an artisan cake, a giant balloon, and a beautiful flower crown. The stuff childhood dreams are made of, right? Now with any baby, even one as precious and sweet as Ms. Sloane, one must be willing to be flexible and fluid. Things rarely go according to plan. But those unexpected twists and turns are where a lot of the fun comes from, too. Not to mention some very entertaining portraits over the years!
Needless to say, Sloane did not disappoint. She was so freakin’ adorable! Watching her play with the giant balloon and explore (more than eat) the cake, made me laugh till my face hurt. After the session, as she sat in the bubbles of my studio sink getting the frosting cleaned out of her ears, her giggles continued to light up the room as I mopped cake off the floor with a big grin on my face.
