Photography is another one of my loves and I had the honor of photographing my dearest friends granddaughter’s 1st birthday photos. I just love how they turned out and soon I will post a blog on some of my most favorites photos from the photo session. So, keep an eye out for it.

I made her birthday outfit along with most of the props for the session. Also, I made video tutorials so I could show you how I made them. Believe me when I tell you that they are all super easy to make too!

You can change all the aspects of it to make it match perfectly to your own party and color scheme. Check out the video below to see just how easy it is.
