Eli's Cake Smash.

Happy Birthday Mr. Eli!
We've been talking about doing these photos with our little man since before he was born! I think it's such a fun idea and totally worth the mess!
I still cannot believe that my little guy is already a year old. It has honestly been the fastest year of my life- full of amazing blessings and new experiences. God has been so good to us this past year and is definitely guiding our family as we grow together and we are soaking it all in, as fast as it's going. 
Eli was so fun to watch with his first taste of cupcake. It took a few minutes before he figured out what to do with it, but once he clued in that the weird chocolate stuff was yummy, he cracked a little smile and it was all over him in seconds (and close to being all over us!)
I obviously had to share just a few of these! :) 

And the birthday boy got to hit the tub! His favourite thing to do. 


The Smink Family.

I was very thankful for the beautiful sunshine that came right in time for another fall family session. We made the drive down to Welland, Ontario to snap some pictures of my extended family and all their kidlets. Way too cute! And it was a great location for these guys! Here they are, the great big family!
