Before I launched into wedding season, I had the unique opportunity to spend a Saturday afternoon photographing a different kind of momentous occasion for a family: A First Birthday Party!

I met with Kristin a few months back to talk about her sweet baby girl and the plans for the spring birthday. From the sounds of it (and from the pins on her Pinterest board!), I knew the party would be so much fun! Bryan + Kristin currently reside in North Carolina, but they decided to host the party in Michigan where they both grew up and where their families live. It turned out to be a gorgeous spring day for this beautiful shabby-chic, cupcake-inspired birthday party! Lots of fun was had by all and I’m so happy I was able to share in this day with them!

Here’s a little glimpse into sweet little Lexi’s first birthday celebration with her Michigan friends and family!I arrived early so we were able to snap a few portraits of the birthday girl with her awesome parents!Kristin did a fabulous job tying all the details and ideas together!The delicious cake was made by the awesome bakers at Holiday Market in Royal Oak. In my opinion, it’s one of the best places to get a cake for ANY occasion in Metro Detroit! My dad has been buying our birthday cakes there for the past 10 years and they have yet to disappoint! :)
