This little king turned one almost a month ago now, and I am so glad I got to be a part of this special photo session. In the last year, I haven't always been able to see Harrison grow up, but each time I visited the Hovdenes family, he reached a new milestone. From his first tooth to his first step, this little boy has come a long way, and I can't wait to continue capturing these special moments for the family!
As soon as he saw the cake, Harrison had his heart set on it! When mom and dad finally said he could go for it, there was no stopping him; we moved the cake from the box to the blanket in front of him, and he nearly broke out in tears thinking we were stealing his treat away from him. Watching him shovel in the cake, one fistful at a time was absolutely adorable. I mean, just look at this cutie!!
After the cake smash, Richard and Tori spent some time cleaning up the messy eater, and we took a few family photos in the same location. It was great to see him light up on his dad's shoulders or in the comfort of his mom's arms. This family is truly adorable!
We took a short break from the summer heat after these family photos, and then reconvened at Jorgensen Park for some additional family photos.
I have to say, I think that out of the whole day, Harrison enjoyed the swings most (even over the cake)!
