I can’t believe another one of my adorable baby planners is graduating! I have loved getting to know this family over the past year and capturing their special milestones with baby J. My baby planners feel like family to me by the time the year is over, and like always, this cake smash was a little bittersweet. I wanted to ask mom and dad, “when are you having another one?!” as they left. J was a happy little guy as always and he managed to get covered in cake in a matter of seconds. I just adore that little dimple! Enjoy your sneak peek!
I last saw this adorable little man over a year ago when he was just 1 month old. He visited the studio last week to celebrate his first birthday, this time with an entourage! G was quick on his feet and gave us all a good work out. In Gucci from head to toe he had no shortage of style AND personality. He even let me wear those fabulous shades. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Another one of my 2011 newborns celebrated their big first birthday with us last week! I think my favorite part of doing cake smashes, besides the studio smelling so yummy, is that I get to see all of the adorable babies I once cuddled and capture their big personalities. We had a great session with baby L. Classic baby boy met nautical in each of our sets and L had a ball the whole way through. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I first met this little princess at her newborn session 2 years ago and I’ve adored watching her grow and capturing her big personality ever since! At 2 years old, A is at an age full of curiosity and playfulness. She loved trying out every toy in the studio. Mom warned us ahead of time that A might not want to make a mess with her cake so we came up with the perfect way for A to have her cake AND keep her table manners; a cake smash tea party! Complete with utensils and wipes, A enjoyed celebrating her 2nd birthday sans mess. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Another one of my adorable baby planners is celebrating his first birthday. Baby Z visited the studio last week for his first birthday cake smash portrait session and we had such fun together. He is such a happy baby and those big blue eyes make me melt. Such a charmer! We started with his traditional portraits and then created a St. Patrick’s day themed set for him to dig into his well-earned treat. He laughed and smiled the whole way through our session. Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad. Enjoy the sneak peek!
I was so excited to see baby H again for his first birthday. I last saw this gorgeous family for their maternity and newborn sessions and can hardly believe it has already been a year! Baby H has gotten so big. He was so sweet and full of smiles. One of the easiest 1-year-olds I’ve ever photographed! We started with some family portraits and topped the session off with a cake smash to celebrate H’s first birthday. H loved his cake, especially getting his feet in it. I’m still cracking up over these. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I had so much fun celebrating J’s first birthday last week. I haven’t seen him since he was just a few days old so I couldn’t get over how much he has grown! J was a typical boy on the move who loved exploring the studio. At one point we were trying to get his attention and mom grabbed her cell phone to play his favorite song. On comes “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 and you should have seen J move! He was so excited, he started dancing up a storm. I’m laughing just looking at all of these pictures for the preview. Then it was time to get down to business with his cake. I love the way our nautical set turned out and J really seemed to enjoy himself in it. Happy birthday baby J! Enjoy your sneak peek!
And because I can’t go without sharing one of how teeny J was just a year ago:
Well here it finally is! We’ve had to keep it under wraps since before Christmas, but we are finally ready to share whether we will be painting the nursery pink or blue. To make our gender reveal extra special, we decided to let Giuliana smash a cake and have the inside color announce the baby’s sex. Thank you so much to The Organic Bloom for the beautiful frames, Sweet Indulgence for the delicious cake, Gigi’s Glitzy Boutique for Giuliana’s adorable outfit, and Eden XO for pampering me and making me look my best (as I was very hesitant to jump in front of the camera)!
And the inside is PINK! Giuliana is so thrilled that she is going to have a baby sister… can’t you tell?!
Phew! After loosing the power this week I am FINALLY caught up with all of my blog previews. And how lucky am I to end my week with this gorgeous baby? L and her family visited the studio last Friday to celebrate her first birthday and we had such a fun session. She had just started walking about a week before our session… and she was already RUNNING! This girl might just be a track star one day! I couldn’t get over how fast she was. We started the session with some family portraits then let L steal the show. Mom had the most amazing taste in beautiful dresses and adorable outfits that I could have played dress up all day. She also inspired the cake smash set with some of the photos she brought in at our pre-session consultation. I love having a little visual inspiration to play with when planning a cake smash set! Our entire office is covered with pink glitter from these stars, but it turned out to be one of my favorite sets and totally worth it. Enjoy your sneak peek!
How lucky am I that I get to see this adorable face throughout the year? Gorgeous baby A is one of my baby plan clients this year and I’m already looking forward to our next session together. We picked out some colorful spring sets for her 1 year old session and topped it off with a first birthday cake smash. Sweet Indulgence made us the perfect cake to go with A’s Minnie Mouse birthday theme. I love the way all of this color turned out. These are sure to make you smile, enjoy your sneak peek!
