Isabelle 1st Birthday! | Bendix Woods

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” 
― Albert Einstein

I met up with this sweet family at Bendix Woods just outside of South Bend. The park is gorgeous and filled with beautiful pines. We found a spot were the light was just about perfect. Little Isabelle did such a great job and was such a joy to photograph. Happy Birthday sweet girl! 

Luke {Smash the Cake} South Bend, Indiana

"Children hold our hands for awhile, but hold our hearts forever." - Unknown

We met this adorable family at their beautiful home in South Bend a few months ago. The plan was to celebrate little Luke's first birthday with a little cake, and a whole lot of laughs!

Luke and Addison were so adorable! They were so incredibly sweet and kind, and so photogenic!! With their bright eyes and sweet smiles, we couldn't get enough of these two.  

We headed inside where Renea had the cutest setup for little Luke's smash the cake session! With his colorful, spotted bib around his neck, Luke had a blast with his cake! Even though he didn't necessarily "smash the cake", he did enjoy munching on it and even sticking his foot in it and making a big mess! 

Addison eventually jumped in to help him finish his cake, and Luke made sure to not leave anybody out and even gave his momma Renae a bite! 

We had such a blast capturing this special moment for this family and are grateful to give them a wonderful experience to look back on as these two celebrate many more birthdays to come!
