Celebrate your little one’s first year millstone with a cake smash photo shoot!
Why are they so enjoyable? Well firstly, when your child approaches their first birthday, it’s a huge and emotional milestone for us as parents. It’s exciting, fun and an emotional time! Our little babies have turned ONE!
From discovering you’re expecting, feeling those tiny kicks, holding them for the first time – and then spending the last 12 months helping them turn into the little person they are now. Those are but a few reasons why we love to photograph these sessions! And did we mention that we include family portraits in your one hour session?
If your little one is turning one soon, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me! First birthday sessions are a wonderful way to celebrate this busy year that you and your baby have had. I’ll do all the work and you just have to show up excited! My package includes access to my client closet for you and your baby as well as the cake and decor so you have less to think about and get to enjoy the session. Each session is individually styled for your child. But as you can tell – we love simplicity focusing on your child and their cake.
CANDID PHOTOS OF BABY ALONE
The milestone portion of your child’s session follows the family set ups. Milestone portion is where we focus on developmental changes since our last session together. For 12 months, it’s usually standing or walking, pulling up, clapping their hands, smiling, and really showcasing their personality.
FAMILY PHOTOS TAKE PLACE FIRST
Family sessions are lifestyle in nature, meaning I embrace the spirit of your family. I encourage you to play with your kiddo, interact with your spouse and feel at ease. Family photos take place at the beginning so that little one has time to warm up to me. Plus, baby will be smashing a cake after the family part so this makes sure baby is clean for your family images.
WE END WITH THE CAKE SMASH
After baby’s individual portion of milestone images, we then focus on the cake smash aspect of your session. I provide timeless and vintage inspired props for this session, but also ensure baby is the focus of our time together, too. I do not like distracting aspects in the images so props are kept to a minimum so baby will be the shining star. Examples of props I may bring as things like an antique high chair, quilt and crate.
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.
