Southlake First Birthday Photographer
I was contacted by this sweet pea’s momma to schedule some first birthday portraits. She requested an area with pretty flowers and shade. I quickly suggested Grapevine Botanic Gardens. The gardens are heavily shaded and there is a large variety of beautiful flowers and towering trees. Since the photos would be taken in June, we decided a morning session would be best. The temperatures were already soaring in the afternoon! We were pleasantly surprised with it being in the 80’s for this morning session.
The gardens are small, and are the perfect size for small families with young children. There are three bridges, koi ponds, as well as a green house area. It’s quaint size is fun to explore and offers a variety of locations for portraits. During the evening the sun provides beautiful golden light rays that stream between the tree branches.
I love the adorable outfits this little one wore for portraits. The classic smocked dress will always photograph well. Also, gingham is a classic design that photographs beautifully. They are both perfectly fashionable for all generations past and present. When it comes to wardrobe I recommend traditional styles. They will stand the test of time. Trendy clothing with characters are a fad and will soon fade.
