Celebrating with glitter + cupcakes

Glitter. The answer is always glitter and this little lady sparkles in the best way! Last week's glitter session was every three year old's dream as we threw it around like confetti and then munched on cupcakes! This little lady is a leap year baby and since this year is a leap year, she's getting ready to celebrate in a big way! Autumn's mom contacted me in December asking me if I had any ideas for a birthday session that would suit her daughter. I am primarily an outdoor photographer and while I love focusing on cake smashes and bubble baths in during the warmer months, it's just not accessible when it's twenty below. After some thought, I threw out the idea of doing a glitter session and we made it happen!

Autumn's glitter session featured a simple blush dress, white knee high socks and a gold crown coupled with glitter and a seamless grey backdrop. That was it! Autumn's mom added some final touches such as a touch of gold nail polish on her hands and gorgeous curls in her hair before the start of our session tied everything together. A lot of people think the more props the better, but you can actually create magic with a simple setup and the right combination.

Happy birthday, Autumn!
