Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

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!

Hot Air Balloon Cake Smash Session – Pink, Gold, and Mint

I’m obsessed with this cake smash theme and the colors! This little lady had a hot air balloon themed cake smash session in pink, gold and mint. I do a lot of sessions with pink and gold. It was refreshing to add in another accent color – mint. This little birthday girl was feeling a little under the weather for her 1st birthday cake smash session but you would never know it from the pictures. She is as cute as could be!

Nolden’s Green Ombre and Gold Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

I’m a little bias since this sweet boy happens to be family but I think he is pretty stinking cute!! I mean look at those blue eyes, creamy skin, and the baby rolls!! So cute!

Little Nolden came to the studio for his 1st birthday cake smash which was decorated with green ombre with gold accents/stars. It couldn’t have been more adorable. Nolden loved the cake and was as happy as could be. That is until he knocked the cake over and he didn’t know what to do about it. That is okay… it’s his party and he can cry if he wants to. Sometimes a tear or two makes for great pictures too. Happy 1st birthday little guy!!

Brody is One – Indianapolis Photographer

I’ve had the joy of watching this little guy grow over the last year. It’s been a fun year! This handsome boy has the cutest curly hair, longest eye lashes and bright blue eyes! His last grow-with-me session was his 1st birthday cake smash. The theme was cars. It couldn’t be more perfect for him. I mean what one-year-old little boy doesn’t love cars!?! I know my little one-year-old does!!!  And if you think Brody cannot love anything more than cars, just wait until you see how much he LOVES cake too!  He had a super fun time smashing and eating his cake!

Blue and White 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This handsome little guy was the happiest for his 1st birthday cake smash. He had a blue and white themed session and we threw in some twinkle lights for good measure. But the real star of the show was this sweet boy’s beautiful blue eyes and long eye lashes that coordinated with the backdrop. I mean look at those eyes!!! I had the joy of photographing this handsome little boy’s sister for her 1st birthday cake smash too. I adore being able to watch families like this grow!

Pink, Purple, and Gold Unicorn Cake Smash – Indianapolis Child Photographer

I’ve adored watching this little lady over the last year! I had the privilege of being there when she was born and I’ve photographed her every few months since. Well her family moved away since her last session (so sad!). I was afraid I wasn’t going to get to see her for her cake smash session, but Mom and Dad couldn’t miss celebrating with me and drove 7+ hours so that she could do her cake smash in the studio! Now that is dedication.

If you ask me, it was so worth the drive. This is one of my favorite cake smash sessions to date! It’s a pink, purple, and gold themed unicorn session. The cake couldn’t have been more perfect for the session. And this little lady was the perfect birthday model.

Be sure to check out the behind the scenes video at the end of this post. You won’t want to miss it.
