First Birthday: Smash Cake Portrait Session!

In a recent blog, we talked about how lucky we are to photograph children and watch them grow through so many stages of life. I can’t believe it, but it’s time to share Baby C’s first birthday smash cake session!

He’s such a little cutie, and I loved his embroidered tie shirt.

We had a lot of fun during his portrait session with a vintage suitcase, and the blue was so pretty with his deep brown eyes.

But I think his favorite photography prop was the vintage trunk! He loved making noise on it – playing the drums and listening to the sound of the trunk.

What a happy little guy!

For our custom smash cake sessions, we have the cake designed to match the child’s outfit or favorite animal – it was a dinosaur and lots of blue 1s for this little boy!

He was excited, but cautious at first…
