St. Simon's Island Family Photographer | Miss Grace turns one

I've been photographing this family since this sweet girl was growing in her Mama's belly.  It's so hard to believe she's already one!  I've loved getting to know her and her family over the last year and to see Miss Grace's personality grow more and more.  For her one year session, we split it up into two parts: a cake smash at the studio, and a family session in St. Simon's Island at Epworth where her Mama and Daddy were married. 

I don't do cake smash sessions as often as I used to.  I used to include props and balloons and tons of décor.  However, I've learned over the past year or so that I really love just the simplest of setups for these.  Soft colors, no distractions.  After all...it's all about your baby turning one, right?  Here are just a few (maybe!) of my favorites from the cake smash part of Grace's session:

Simple is good, am I right?  LOVED the cheeky little grins she gave me!  Her Mama said "that's the look she gives you when she's flirting with you!".  So glad Miss Grace decided to flirt with me for her one year session!

Later we met in St. Simon's Island at Epworth for the family part of the session.  I love being a family photographer and seeing how babies and family's change over the course of a year.  The weather in St. Simon's Island was beautiful and the light was amazing at Epworth:
