Session Spotlight | Monika Eisenbart

There is just no denying that birthdays are the best days. And your first birthday? That takes the very cake of best days! We love the documenting of Esme’s first birthday session from Monika Eisenbart and the hugs and giggles captured throughout has “best day” written all over it!

I would love to share with you one of my recent sessions: first birthday session with Esme and her family. Session took place at the comfort of their home. We started with some cuddles, cake smashing and finished with family art project. It’s one of my favorite sessions.

I shot it with Canon 5D mark III. Most of the time I used Canon 35mm and 50mm lens.
