The minute I drove up to Lake Willastein in Maumelle I knew it was going to be the perfect setting for first birthday pictures. The still water, the playground, the trees...totally beautiful. On top of that, the weather was perfect the morning of the shoot! Little L showed up wearing cute little madras rompers and a serious (happy, but serious) expression on his face. He was so calm and methodical that it was totally cracking me up! Usually acting a fool is how I solicit giggles out of little ones, but L was a tough crowd, so I was the one who ended up giggling at how ridiculous I was acting for so little return. His sweet smirks were worth it, though. When it came time for L's cake smash his seriousness got even more hysterical! Apparently he still looked like a Smurf the rest of the day. Love it.
Happy birthday, little L!
