It’s truly hard to believe that this little girl is celebrating her one year birthday and having a cake smash session! I have been photographing Claire since she was just a newborn. Her parents selected my Grow With Me package, and oh my goodness, she is an absolute doll! I’m beyond excited I had the amazing opportunity to meet these guys and photograph Claire. Feel free to check out her adorable six month session that was done in my studio as well. You won’t be disappointed…she is so cute, and her sweet pictures will for sure brighten any day!
I really enjoy working with this family very much. They have such great style, personalities, and they are very photogetic! I absolutely love the neutral colors in their outfit choices and how they compliment the landscapes so well. It makes for very pretty portraits!
We had so much fun during this session as we not only got to do Claire’s one year portraits, but we also had time for family ones and that famous cake smash! I always tell parents that if they are up for it to give the little ones a couple bites of cake from time to time before their session date. Then the kiddos know what cake is and they are a little more excited to dive right in! Claire was no exception…she really enjoyed her cake very much! It’s so much fun when they dive in and get their hands dirty! She was cracking me up because I think she mostly enjoyed wiping the frosting all over the edge of the bed/prop she was sitting on! She would just smear it around and have fun playing in it. It was SO cute!
Please feel free to check out some of my favorite images from their session. And make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for those adorable cake smash pictures! 🙂
