First Birthday Portraits and Cake Smash

May 11, 2020

Happy First Birthday baby Adriana! The Cake Smash Session is a fun way to celebrate your one or two-year-old’s birthday!  Just imagine all the hilarious faces they will make as they realize they are free to dive right into the delicious butter cream dessert made just for them – you’ll love looking back on these photos when they’re older!

A lot of times, families will book a cake smash session a few weeks before baby’s first birthday so that they can use the images in either birthday party invitations or thank you cards, or as part of the decor at baby’s party.

I had the pleasure of photographing baby Adriana the day after his first birthday. Her parents wanted some professional photos to capture this important milestone. My all-inclusive first birthday packages include both child and family photos so they will have some great memories to cherish and hang on their wall.

That first year of a child’s life goes by so fast and professional portraits are a great way to remember how little they once were.

Over the years, our cake smash sessions have become more and more simple to simple focus on parent and baby portraits. Mom chose to simple bring a cake smash cake and a few balloons to keep the primary focus on her beautiful baby girl: her expressions, her movements, the cuddles with mom and dad are the moments parents want to remember – and the ones this baby will cherish most when she’s older. The photos we capture at Anchor Studio are timeless – the ones you will be eager to print and display in your home.

I can’t wait to help you create a beautiful visual legacy for your family!

If your little one is turning 1 soon – I’d love to capture their first birthday milestone session with a cake smash added whether it’s in-studio or outdoors. I also offer gift certificates which make the perfect gift for parents. You can contact me to set up a consultation and we can discuss all the details to customize your photography experience.
