Owen James Turns One
I have had the pleasure of photographing this young man three times now. Each time was a different experience which just goes to show you how kids moods can change at the drop of a dime. However his cake smash session was my all time favorite so far.
When Owen's mom said she wanted to do a Harry Potter themed cake smash I was SO excited. My family is also a huge fan of the Potter series. My sons room is Harry Potter everything. From Diagon Alley above his bed to house pennants on his walls. It was SO much fun bringing this set up to life.

When I saw all of Owens rolls I thought for sure this is a kid who is going to LOVE cake. I mean look at how adorable he is how could he not. However he actually really just enjoyed being in his Harry Potter onesie with his wand. He kept lifting his leg to his head. I mean I have a million photos like the one below. Who knew a 25lb kid could be so flexible!!
Owen is such a happy joy to be around. The first time I photographed him he refused to smile no matter what I did. The second time his extended family was their for Christmas minis to help him smile. However this session it was awesome to see him happy, silly and totally in his element. While he shockingly didnt love his cake he was your perfect typical boy in the sense that he made a mess. He may have only taken a bite or two of cake but he played in it like no other.
Happy birthday Owen James! I cant wait to photograph you again!
Enjoy some photos below from his session
