Paris’ Sweet 16 Photo Session in Eau Claire

This past winter Paris’ mom reached out to me about surprising Paris for her 16th birthday with a Sweet 16 Photo session in Eau Claire. Of course, I was on board because I know how much fun both Ashley & Paris are and I knew that Ashley had some fun plans up her sleeve.

We started the evening with some ice cream from one of my favorite places in Eau Claire – at Ramone’s Ice Cream Parlor! The folks that own Ramone’s are about the sweetest you could come by so we knew we wanted to pop in for a homemade waffle cone… even better a little red Chevy van was parked outside that is Volume One’s buggy. After that, we just explored the ever-beautiful downtown Eau Claire.

One thing that Ashley mentioned she knew she wanted to do was a cake smash with Paris. A family tradition for Ashley growing up, she knew she wanted to document this with Paris. So, they lit a little succulent candle in a tiny cake and had a little bit of fun with the idea.

I’ve been looking forward to sharing these and can’t wait to document Paris’ senior photos soon, too! Can’t believe how quickly time is flying!
