I like cake smashes sessions, but what I really, REALLY like are first birthdays sessions. The difference? First birthday sessions celebrate your baby’s very first year, the first of all of his or her many years to come and it came be a fantastic opportunity for a very unique themed session.
This family chose an Indie first birthday theme for their precious little “Indian” boy. This little boy was so adorable playing in our teepee in this perfect location for this themed session next to the “river”. The bending tree branches over the teepee were almost cave-like and the sunlight passing through it was almost magical. I love that place!
I like to create the most comprehensive portfolio in the first birthday sessions, so I usually do two outfit changes, a couple of family shots, and then the cake smash, well, because right after that messy experience, there is no way we are taking any more photographs, lol. But this baby was happy. He was enjoying himself, always smiling, so we got to photograph him with three cute outfits. I found the little cub outfit just the day before the session! It was a perfect addition to even cuter images and then rewarded him with the cake smash part of the session.
The way I see it, First Birthday sessions are a family event, so take advantage of taking amazing family shots, and creating something so special
Now it’s time for this lil’Indian boy to celebrate some more!
Each kids’ reaction to smashing the cake is so different and so worth capturing in photographs, and each one of them it’s absolutely cute!
But before the cake smash happens…let’s have some great family shots! And if you know me well you’ll know that I’m always encouraging parents to take the opportunity to take great family portraits when we do sessions. These images are so important to have and treasure forever!
