Emiko's 1st Birthday. Baby Photography in Oakland Township, Michigan.

Emiko is the adorable daughter of my long-time friend, Jennifer, and her husband, Eric.  I've had the pleasure of photographing both Emiko and her big brother, Ethan, since they were newborns.  A couple months ago, Emiko celebrated her 1st birthday, and I was there to capture it.  It was a princess themed soiree, and every detail was fabulous!  It was definitely a celebration fit for royalty.  ;) At first, Emi wasn't too thrilled about having her picture taken...


But after a while, she decided to give me a few smiles (with a little help from her Mama, of course).

Check out some of the the beautiful details.

Onto the festivities!  This was seriously the best cake smash I have ever seen, thanks to big brother Ethan's participation.  He just had to show her how it's done.  :)


And while all eye's were on Emiko's cake smash (and while I was busy photographing it), someone took the opportunity to sneak a cupcake.  That would be my daughter, Violet.  Pretty sneaky! Luckily someone noticed before she managed to spread hot pink frosting across the room!

And the party continued...

And here are a few more adorable shots of the birthday girl.

I'm so glad I was able to be a part of Emi's first birthday!  Thanks once again to Jen and Eric for letting me capture another special time with your family.  Hope everyone enjoyed checking out the photos.  Thanks for looking!  xo ~ denise
