Birthday Session in La Habra | Lauren & Audrey

No matter their ages, little girls LOVE unicorns. The magical creatures, complete with dazzling sparkles and rainbow manes, have graced that pages of fairytale books for centuries. So, it made sense that for Lauren and Audrey’s birthday, a unicorn theme would work perfectly for their joint birthday session. Little Audrey turned one year old while her sweet big sister Lauren turned five! We did their birthday photo shoot outdoors in front of the bright red and orange leaves. What a perfect day for a photo session! The shimmering pink, orange, and teal balloons looked so pretty in the natural light with the greenery in the background.

The two sisters were so precious together. They both had on pink unicorn shirts with colorful tulle skirts. It’s easy to see that even in one short year, Audrey and Lauren have developed a close sisterly bond. Since Lauren is a little older, she knew that she was the center of attention for the shoot and really played it up. She hugged and kissed her little sister and displayed all kinds of adorable poses. Audrey followed suit, already wanting to be just like her big sister.

I love the props that Mom picked out: the simple but cute décor made it fun for the girls without detracting from their bright smiles and big personalities. A little fringed banner hung above a crate, and cute wooden numbers with unicorn ears announced their ages. To complete the look, a little sign stood in front that said, “Unicorns make me smile.”

Unicorns may make these sisters smile, but their fun antics and bubbly giggles made me smile even more. I had so much fun capturing these milestone years. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings for these two. More laughter, sparkles, and shenanigans, I’m sure. Happy birthday to these special girls!
