Little Mr. Wellesley here has been my buddy over the last year and a half or so, getting to know "him" when I meet momma and daddy for their summer maternity session in 2021.

Man I just love when our families choose Belly to Birthday sessions... it's SO fun to get to see every stage of the family coming together and by far the most popular baby packages we offer. But I digress...

Any who, this little guy has officially grown up in front of my eyes this year. From a sweet little newborn to his big "Chosen One" Harry Potter themed birthday a few weeks ago.

So to celebrate the big O-N-E I met Welles and his crew out in the wildflower fields to get this sweet age sealed up forever for momma to enjoy even after the terrible twos and three-nager threes take hold.

With it being so warm we even shot some special one of him nakie in the field which are BY FAR some of my favorites from the session... but for modesty reasons, I promised momma and daddy not to share those here.

That said, his little jumpers as ADORABLE too! Don't ya think?

And also who doesn't LOVE Harry Potter?!

The sweet little CHOSEN ONE, he is.

With his little Hedwig 🦉, sorting hat and newly appointed 🧙 Ravenclaw crew, Welles was all set to celebrate his first birthday. And what birthday isn't complete with a custom pink "Hagrid cake" to dive into?!

If you're into the HP ⚡ series this was a supper cute little set up we came up with using pieces from his birthday party the day before. And if not, well... you can still enjoy those cute little cheeks diving into a big, pink cake! lol.
