Chicago Smash Cake - One Year Old -Roscoe Village

This sweet little lady turned one and had an in-home smash cake session recently. The theme from her birthday party was Dirty Dancing, so the theme continued for some of her photos as well! I think it’s safe to say she loved her cake and I LOVE how well chocolate frosting shows up for photos :) Happy first birthday, sweet, happy girl!

Skyler is ONE!

Holy toledo, where in the world did time go?! Seems like just yesterday this spunky girl was born! I love her to pieces and am so glad I got to spend her first birthday with her. My sister and brother-in-law have quite the beautiful character on their hands. She's been noisy since she came out of the womb and she's only getting louder! So much to say and she can't even talk yet. And don't get me started on how she does not stop moving. Ever! This girl is going to rule the world!  

Can I also just gush about the light on the farm for the family part of the photos?! WOW! We waited out a mini rain surge that night just before we started and got the most beautiful light and glistening grass. So worth the wait & wet feet.

Best buds.

They were having a contest to see who's loudest!
