Chase is One!

May 08, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
Chase came in for his one year portraits and to do a little cake smashing. In my life I have never seen a baby sit down and try to eat a whole cake. Handful after handful of cake, shoveled in his mouth during his cake smash session. So hilarious. I seriously thought he might explode. Happy birthday Chase!!!
