Happy First Birthday JJ! A Dumbo inspired cakesmash first birthday baby portrait session.

It was a big day for this handsome peanut!  We celebrated his first birthday in style with a Dumbo inspired cakesmash and backdrop hand painted just for him.  As always, a huge thanks to Sweet Indulgence for the yummy cake.  He was loving it until it tipped over… then, well, you can see how he felt about the mess in the last photos!  In a few short months, JJ will be promoted to big brother.  That last photo is pretty much how I feel about being a middle child, so I totally feel ya little guy. 😉

Special thanks to Sarah Zollo Photography for being my right hand lady AND sharing your gorgeous studio space for this session.


D’s First Birthday In Home cakesmash session, Baby Beluga and the big blue sea!

A cake smash and a pizza smash, OH MY!  D’s family has an amazing Italian Restaurant in Massachusetts so you may have seen his big brother’s photo (from when he turned one at our studio) on the side of their catering van driving around Central Ma.  Well, big brother can’t have all of the fun!  New baby, new van, new photo!

I had fun painting the Italian Pizzeria scene, but not nearly as much fun as D had devouring his Pizza.  These kids know how to eat!

And those eyes.  Can we talk about those?  No, you’re right, we don’t have to.  The photos say it all <3 <3 <3

I loved photographing this milestone session in their gorgeous house and capturing both boys playing in their rooms.  I mean, mom does such an impeccable job decorating, these belong in a magazine!  Thanks for the fun shoot D and family.  <3
