Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Asher is One – Indianapolis Photographer

Getting up at sunrise for a session is always a win and this session was no exception! At sunrise you almost always have the park to yourself which is super nice. Also, you get this very golden light and sometimes, like for this session, you even get that foggy morning dew – talk about dreamy!!

Mr. Asher, the birthday boy, was pretty dreamy too! He had a smile for every shot and was full of personality! You can’t help but laugh when you are interacting with him. It seems like just yesterday I was taking his newborn pictures. I can’t believe he is already a one-year-old.  We were able to get some pretty great family photos with Asher as well.  Be sure to check out his cake smash towards the end- it is super adorable!

Purple & Teal Cake Smash – Indianapolis Photographer

Over the last year I’ve had the joy of photographing this beautiful girl and all her milestones! She happened to pick my two favorite colors for her cake smash session – purple and teal. And we added in twinkle lights for good measure. She couldn’t have looked any more adorable if she tried!  Even though these colors are my most favorite colors- I really do love how they look together and especially how the cake and the teal pop with the purple backdrop!  Her little tutu and adorable necklace matched perfectly!  What a great way to celebrate this sweet little star turning ONE!

Disney Cars Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

Vroom- Vroom this little man is ONE! He came to the studio to celebrate his First Birthday with a Disney Pixar Cars set-up which he loved- almost as much as he loved his cake!  He is such a handsome little one year old and he was oh so happy too!  Even though having the Cars theme around may have made him eat a little faster, he definitely took his time enjoying every bite of his cake.  He was really curious about the frosting and I am sure that he enjoyed the sugary sweetness!  Don’t his big, brown eyes just melt your heart?

Pink & Gold Minnie Mouse Cake Smash Session

This smiling one year old has been pure joy to watch grow over the last year.  She has been a grow-with-me client since she was a newborn!  She ended up having a pink and gold Minnie Mouse Cake Smash Session to celebrate her first birthday!  Pink and gold is a super popular color combination and Minnie Mouse is a popular theme, but I think that this is my first time combining the two together and it was super cute!  This little sweetie did not make a huge mess with her cake, but she definitely had a great deal of fun and lots of smiles!

Pink and Peach Floral Cake Smash – Indianapolis Photographer

This might be one of my favorite cake smash sessions to date! I just love all the lovely peach and pink floral with a touch of green.  This flowery theme was the perfect fit for this adorable little girls flowery personality!  The birthday girl was as happy as could be and really enjoyed eating her birthday cake. She needed no help or encouragement to just dig in. I also adore this family. They have been amazing clients since their oldest who is now 6 was born. They also travel about an hour and a half for every session to get to my studio! I can’t help but love these guys!!

Pink and Teal Topped with Birthday Cake – Indianapolis Family Photography

I’ve very much enjoyed watching this sweet girl grow over the last year! Mom and Dad scheduled their cake smash session a little earlier then most – 8am. I’m happy to work around kids schedules for session start times so this didn’t bother me one bit (plus my son is up by 7am every day so I was going to be up anyway!). Well their planning paid off! She was one of the happiest little one-year-olds I have ever met. There isn’t a picture where she doesn’t have a big old smile on her face!

You are going to love her pink and teal themed cake smash session! She rocked that cake smash like a champ. My favorite part was when she was eating the cake by just bending over and digging in – head first no hands! She loved the balloons just as much as the birthday cake so we were able to get some adorable pictures of her playing with the balloons too.

Ruby is One – Indianapolis Family Photography

I adore this little one and her family! These guys have been clients of mine since their first baby was born. So not only have I had the privilege of watching this BEAUTIFUL baby girl grow over the last year I’ve also had the privilege of watching her big sister grow for the last 4 years. It’s  been a joy to say the least!! This family makes some beautiful babies!!

Ruby very much enjoyed her cake smash session (unlike her sister)! She dug in – literally head first. We were all laughing by the end of this session.

Skye is ONE! – Zionsville Cake Smash Photography

This little cutie is soaring to new heights for her first birthday.  She takes after her parents when it comes to flying in the air because she is the daughter of two gymnasts- and let me tell you, I was SO excited to have them in the studio!

This little girl is the daughter of one of my favorite Olympians – Jaycie Phelps – and I could not control my excitement when they came in the studio.  You can totally tell that she gets her skills from her parents- as most little ones this age are barely walking and this sweetie was running around the studio!  Her parents have a gym here in Indy, so she definitely must get some active time

Little girl was slow to warm up to the studio but once there was cake involved she was as happy as could be!

Blue Ombre 1st Birthday Cake Smash – Indianapolis Child Photographer

This little dude just turned one and I just cannot even believe it!  I have had the pleasure of watching him grow over the last year and he just has blossomed into the cutest little man with an adorable smile.  To celebrate his first birthday, we did a blue ombre cake smash- and he absolutely adored his cake!  I loved the simplicity of the theme and the suspenders with the bow tie and his little smile just all came together for the perfect first birthday cake smash session!

Toy Story Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Child Photographer

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family since their first little one was born. Their sessions are always lots of fun and very well planned! This one was no exception. The cake smash session theme was Toy Story. It wasn’t too over the top but it’s very clearly Toy Story themed. I really love how it all turned out (and their mom was too!). It’s really true that Disney does make things a little more magical – even first birthdays!
