Amusing, Loving, and Crazy...

This is how Joie and Nick describe their adorable family, and it's not hard to see why. I had the honor of photographing the Mays Family at the Modesto home in their recently renovated backyard -- thanks to a lot of elbow grease from Nick -- which was the perfect place for little William, who'd recently discovered that their small tree was the perfect place for digging. We included some of their favorite relaxation stations in their session, including their swing, grassy area, and hot tub.

Happy Birthday William

The most fun part of the session, clearly, was photographing William's "Cake Smashing" session to celebrate his upcoming 1st birthday. Joie spent hours baking,icing, and perfecting the cutest mini cake and cupcakes, and William enjoyed every morsel and crumb of them.
