I never got that your baby turning one was such a big deal...until I had a kid! Boy, that first year is tough, so absolutely Parents, throw that biggest celebration, hire a professional photographer, and pop that champagne!! You've survived a whole year!
Today I'm highlighting this handsome guy and sharing images from his cake smash. I loved that we made it a family session (because, again Parents this is your celebration as well!)
I typically don't use props in my sessions, however birthday shoot is different! We took many without props and incorporated a few for the theme.
This little guy definitely made a mess and the nearby ants loved it! But, it was totally worth it!
There isn't much direction giving when you're working with a 1 year old, so I pretty much followed and had Mom and Dad come into the frame here and there. Using the simple props helped keep his interest and made for some really cute photos!
