Where the Wild Things Are | First Birthday | Champaign County, IL


When Aiden’s mom told me she was planning a “Where the Wild Things Are” themed birthday, I was SO excited.  This was one of my favorite books growing up!  We kept the props simple to keep the focus on the birthday boy!  He LOVED his cake from SugarShaper95, which fit into the theme perfectly with yummy buttercream frosting and an edible fondant crown on top.  

My clients have big hearts and kind souls, and this family is no exception.  I first met them almost 2 years ago when big sister Ava was just around 6 months old.  Since then I have watched their family grow and I’m always excited to see their name on my calendar.  We used the first part of Aiden’s one year session for some updated family pictures which included some sweet snuggles and lots of laughter!  Ava had fun twirling in her skirt, and Aiden enjoyed playing in the grass.  

Thank you Keller family for continuing to trust me with these precious memories, I look forward to many many more sessions in the future!

XOXO, Kristin

Show this family some love!
