Sweet little Evelyn Kutler turned one earlier this month and her proud mom and dad threw her a huge first birthday party to celebrate.  Krystin made all of the decorations and the birthday girl's outfit completely by hand.  (I have craft-envy, to be sure!)  Of course Evie looked absolutely adorable in her fun little tu-tu and pom-pom hat, even more so because they were lovingly made by mom!

To have a little fun with this momentous day, Krystin and Jared arranged a cake-smash portrait session with us.  Evie's birthday celebration was snow-themed, so of course the cake and all of the decorations were winter appropriate - including the igloo-shaped cake!  Buttercream + spice cake = YUM!  Evie wasn't too sure about the cake at first, but with a little coaxing from mom, decided to dive right in.  We thought she was going to go for a full-out mouthful when she lifted the whole cake to her face.  She proved to be a sweet little lady, however, when she just sampled a bit and set it back down.  lol

We still can't believe that Evie has grown so big so quickly!  It seems like just yesterday that we were shooting Krystin's maternity pictures.  Evie is a precious little girl and we can't wait to see what a beautiful young lady she grows into.
