First Birthday Interview | Pittsburgh Baby Photographer

I'm excited to share highlights from a recent first birthday party that I had the privilege of documenting. The first birthday party was held at the Bethel Park Historical Society. It was built in 1905 as the Bethel Township High School. The room was full of natural light from the large picturesque windows. While I LOVE taking pictures for families, I also LOVE meeting the families that live in the Pittsburgh area! It's truly an honor to be welcomed by so many families to celebrate milestone events and be trusted to capture the moments that turn into memories.

I’m from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I moved to Pittsburgh in 2011.

He was 8 pounds 3 ounces and 20.5 inches long.

Now he is 23 pounds and 30.5 inches.

We call him little monkey.

He walks, can speak some words in Spanish and English and can eat by himself.

He has eight teeth.

Mama, dada, papa (dad in Spanish), agua (water), toy.

He loves rice, apples, pasta and salmon.

His favorite toys are cars and anything with sounds he can ”play” music.

His favorite activities are swimming and dancing.


When we blow him kisses, and when he plays with bubbles.

We had a party at the Bethel Park Historical Society. Around 30 guests came to celebrate with us. The theme of the party was Mickey Roadster Racer. The food was from Pasta too (he likes pasta) and the cake was from Bella, Christie & lil Z’s.
