Jacob’s First Birthday Cake Smash

Jacob’s First Birthday Cake Smash!

Meet Jacob! I have had the pleasure of photographing Jacob’s cake smash in my home studio in Vancouver, WA since his mama brought him in for his 3-month milestone session! You can find that post HERE!

His mama is the FUNNIEST and sweetest woman I have ever met! And Jacob is JUST like her! He always has a smile for me, and is always for excited to come to my studio!

Jacob’s mama and I spent months planning out his first birthday smash session! She had so many ideas on what she wanted to do! However, it ultimately came down to the snowflake theme. Jacob was born during the seasons’ first snowfall, so his mama wanted to incorporate that into his first birthday theme!

We had so much fun during Jacob’s session!

Creating individual cake smash backdrops for birthday sessions is something I enjoy doing. I love tailoring each session to each child. I feel it makes it more personable and special for their session.

I encourage all my parents to utilize Pinterest for getting ideas on what they would like their child’s cake smash session to be like. A lot of times, the prospect of planning out a cake smash session can be daunting for parents! I often have them send me a couple of images of themes they would like, and then I go from there. Jacob’s mama liked that he was born in the winter during the first snowfall, so planning his session was a breeze this time of year. We wanted to use the blue backdrop to make his blue eyes pop, and the silver and white balloons to make the theme more winter-like.

I have a personal cake maker for each of my smash sessions as well. This AMAZING cake came from ducouer333! You can find her Instagram HERE. She takes such great attention to detail for each of my cake smash sessions, and no two cakes are alike!

Jacob was apprehensive about the cake at first, as often little ones are for their smash sessions. But after he got the hang of squishing his hands in the soft buttercream frosting, with a little help from mom, he was all over that cake! I enjoyed how he used the cake as a stool in the end!

I hope you all enjoy Jacob’s snowflake theme first birthday cake smash!

baby mason

 

hi gang!

today on the blog you get to meet mason ryan,  the 8.5-pound bundle of sweetness. this session took place in my studio, and i was able to capture some of my favorite images to date! i had the pleasure of photographing mason’s family for the last year, and am so thrilled to photograph him now as well!

i loved that we included all neutral colors in this shoot, because i feel it keeps the focus primarily on the baby and not the set up. it’s all about the baby in my studio. <3

not to mention, it total helps to have such a photogenic baby in front of the camera! umm… can you say baby model? that gorgeous little face!

thanks again for giving me the honor of photographing mason, mom and dad!

xoxo,
