Growing up in Red Deer, Alberta has had many advantages! One of them is that because it is a smaller city, it is a very desirable place to raise a family. I feel very fortunate to live here and raise my family and that so many of my Red Deer High School friends have chosen to stay in Red Deer to raise their beautiful new families as well. Meet Rozalyn! I’ve known her mama for as long as I can remember!
I photographed Rozi as a newborn when I was quite pregnant with my second baby. Our girls are just 2 months apart. To the day even! Both girls were born on the 5th of the month! When Jess asked if I’d photograph Rozalyn’s first birthday and told me what she was thinking of for it, I knew I had to do it! I was so excited putting together this Gatsby themed cake smash for her.
As much fun as it was for me to design this set, I guess it’s not always the best fun for the babies involved! Ha Ha! Poor Rozi wasn’t into the whole cake smash idea and didn’t want a lot to do with it in the beginning.
But with lots of patience and coaxing, she had a few tastes and maybe enjoyed herself a tiny bit?? What do you think??
