I photographed this little beauty when she was a newborn! I absolutely love having the opportunity to see babies I have photographed in the past, come back to my studio for their milestone sessions and for this cutie, her Cake Smash One Year Session!
Her mom is a planner and already knew at her newborn session, what she had in mind for her one year cake smash. She wanted a unicorn theme! When the year was almost up she contacted me to book her date and we discussed colors etc. She ordered some of her favorite finds off Etsy. We chose a white background to keep the focus of the session on this beautiful girl. And she found a cake decorator who did a wonderful job bringing her vision to life.
When she arrived at the studio, the morning of her session she showed me all the beautiful items she selected. We then selected an outfit from the studio closet. I like to incorporate images of just the baby before we get started, so the family will have timeless portraits along with their fun smash and splash portraits.
Mom opted for this light pink outfit, it fit her perfectly and coordinated well with the rest of her pastel colored gallery.
I captured several different adorable expressions in this outfit and then we moved on to the cake!
I recently came across this adorable claw foot tub and just had to have it! It is a fantastic addition to my cake smash sessions, which I now call Cake Smash & Splash Sessions! After making a birthday cake mess, what better way to clean the baby up all while creating beautiful images that would compliment any bathroom in your home.
It was so nice to see this family again, and how much this little one has grown in just a short time. A year sure does go by fast!
