Happy 1st Birthday Piper!
I love getting to celebrate 1st birthdays with my clients! The first year of a child's life is so momentous for so many reasons. For many parents, it's celebrating that they've survived their first year as a new parent while at the same time celebrating that their little one is growing up. So many milestones happen in the first year (first smile, first tooth, first laugh, first steps, first words, etc.). When I am contacted about a photo session for a 1st birthday cake smash, I love working with the family to create a custom set-up for their child.
For Piper's 1st birthday we decided to do a pink and gold themed birthday cake smash photo shoot to match the theme of her first birthday party at home. Piper's aunt is a very talented baker and made a custom cake for this session that was so beautiful (Check out Hannah's Homemade Favorites)! Piper's mom found an adorable tutu and we accessorized it with a headband and necklace from my prop collection at the studio.
This was such a fun cake smash! Piper was super curious about her cake and LOVED it! I was able to capture so many adorable and precious images of Piper enjoying her birthday cake. I loved how she also kept trying to share with her momma. When we were all done taking pictures with the birthday cake, we put sweet Piper in a tub to rinse her off. When we put her in the tub to get her cleaned up, she signed "more" in baby sign language. She was such a fun baby to photograph and I had a blast creating and capturing this session.
If you have a little one turning one soon, I'd love to visit with you about a 1st birthday cake smash. I love creating special set-ups for these birthday milestones.
