Before we get into this post on how adorable Alessandro is in his pilot outfit, I have to say I have been waiting MONTHS for this session! It has been 14 months 8 days that has been live! If you don’t remember or you are new to my blog, this past November, Babylove turned ONE! To celebrate and say thank you for all of your love and support you all have given me, Babylove launched a special giveaway that included a milestone studio session and a special pair of Freshly Picked Mocks! (I really wish they came in my size!)

Im still so very grateful to all of those who entered – your support in this new journey truly means more than you will ever know – BUT there could only be one winner! In a world where few genuine and giving people exist, I could not have picked a more deserving family to win this special milestone. When I first got in contact with Alessandro’s mamma Melissa, I knew right away that she would totally rock this session and the more we talked about the details, the more  I knew this was going to be one of my favourites! Check out that awesome banner and that cake made by Melissa! Creative moms like this really help make a vision come to life!

I was lucky enough to spend the afternoon with this amazing family. Melissa, her husband Rocky and their adorable sweet boys, Salvatore and of course the star of the session, Alessandro. The more I got to know them, the happier I became knowing that I was able to capture these special moments for them. As you can tell, Alessandro LOVED his cake! Even though he didnt share any of it with us, it was all worth it at the end.

Melissa & Rocky, thank you so much for entering my contest, for all your support, your kind words along the way and of course the lovely flowers (and of course my new favourite mug!). Even though we have really just met, I feel like I have known you for years! Im so so happy that I got to meet you guys and work with your amazing family.

Happy first birthday Alessandro! may your dreams help you soar up up and away!
