It would appear that 1st birthday cupcake celebrations are all the rage in Chicago. So when chic couple Erin and Derek moved from Chicago to Omaha, they brought the idea with them. And it’s a fantastic idea for a family portrait!
Portrait photography is more fun with cupcakes.
We met at the adorable boutique bakery Bliss downtown for some tasty (and beautiful) cupcakes and hit it off right away. We learned that Erin is quite the artiste – she creates stylish handmade flowers on headbands and more for adults and children. You can see her handiwork on her delightful daughter, Ada, and at Blue Bicycle Design. And you could always pick one up for your favorite photographer. ;) Derek is also of the artistic persuasion, making killer websites. He worked for the Secret Service, too, which is pretty awesome.
Needless to say, Ada dove right into her cupcake. She had a great time (and a sugar high) and so did we. It was one of those happy occasions that reminded us why we love photography. Happy 1st birthday, Ada!
