When it comes to photographing those turning one, families oftentimes opt for either a portrait session together at a local park or a cake smash session where their little one gets to indulge in eating their birthday cake on their own. I like the idea of combining both especially when a birthday party is involved.
We had the opportunity to capture Miss D’s birthday party celebration with her closest friends and family members. She loved playing games with her cousins and especially enjoyed getting to eat cake on her own. She made a grand ol’ mess and indulged in every minute of it.
Based on Miss D’s nap schedule we scheduled a follow-up family session at the house the very next day. We had the opportunity to capture her in her nursery playing with some of her favorite toys as well as some images of her with her dad supporting her favorite team of all time – the Seattle Seahawks.
It has been such a treat watching Miss D grow and getting to capture various milestones in her life. It is hard to believe that she is already one, but we look forward to many more photo sessions in the future. These images from her cake smash portrait session are certainly going to be fun to look back on in the years to come.
