Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Bunny Birthday – Indianapolis Photographer

I’ve been photographing this adorable girl and her brother since birth.  I’m pretty sure that this sweet little girl should be a baby model because she is stunning.  We did a bunny themed cake smash because she was born right around Easter.  She seemed to really enjoy the cake smashing and she was definitely a bit teary eyed when we were finished.  She just wanted more cake and celebration!  Happy First Birthday, Caroline!  Thanks for letting me celebrate with you.

Minnie Mouse Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

There is nothing like celebrating your first birthday with a Minnie Mouse themed cake smash session in pink and gold.  And that is just what this little cutie had.  It was all girl and super adorable.  She had so many sweet outfits- she must have a stylist!  She was completely enthralled by the cake and she got quite a bit all over her face, but the photos turned out wonderful!  Needless to say, she was a little sad to leave as you can tell from the last photo.

Pink, Teal and Gold 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I’ve very much enjoyed watching this sweet girl grow over the last year! She has always been such a happy and adorable little one! Her first birthday cake smash session was no exception.  I just LOVE the outfits that her family picked out for her.

For her 1st birthday, she has a pink, teal and gold theme.  It was complete with a sweet little crown as well.  Her facial expressions made these photos even better- such a cuteness overload!  The birthday cake was a hit and I know that her family is going to treasure these memories forever!

Holden Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

I adore this family! I’ve been photographing this sweet family since they got engaged and then I photographed their wedding, newborn pictures for this little guy and a few moments in-between. They are just the sweetest and they sure do make cute kiddos!! One of my favorite things about my job is being able to watch families grow. I don’t have a ton of clients that I’ve watched from engagement to kids!

This little guy’s cake smash theme came from his diaper cover. It was all sorts of fun party colors that we pulled into the backdrop and cake topper. This little birthday boy sure did love his 1st birthday cake.  He seemed to have a great time with the cake and the smash.  He was as curious as can be with everything going on and I am so glad that I got to celebrate his first birthday with him!

MVP Sports 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This handsome birthday boy was very stoic and made me work for smiles. I didn’t mind one bit because he had some great non-smiling faces too! He had a raised brow look that just cracked me up. He is clearly full of personality!!

For this birthday boy, we did an MVP sports themed cake smash session. It was very fitting for him because his mom played collegiate sports and his dad played professional basketball overseas. Something tells me that this sweet boy is going to be a sports player but his parents aren’t forcing one sport on him. He has the whole world of sports open to him (at least for his first birthday cake smash session). While we didn’t get many ear-to-ear grins, it was clear that he enjoyed this sports themed cake smash. He sure did like to eat all that frosting!

This was my last session before going on maternity leave. It took place 3 days before my due-date and I went into labor the day after this session. I did take a behind the scenes video of this session and I’m looking very pregnant in it! But it’s still super fun and it’s at the end of this post of you are interested in seeing what all goes into one of these sessions.

Miss ONE-derful 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I can’t believe that this sweet little girl is ONE!  Her cute little outfit and her height definitely make her look older than one. I have been photographing her since her birth and she is such a happy little one full of smiles.  I just love blue on little girls- especially on this adorable one with her blue eyes.  She has great facial expressions and she seemed to really love her cake!

Pastel Rainbow Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I’ve had the pleasure of watching this sweet girl grow over the last year. She was a doll so it was only fitting that her first birthday session start of with her wearing her dol! In all seriousness, the Doljanchi (or dol) is a traditional Korean 1st birthday outfit. It’s a sweet tradition that I was happy to capture for this family. We followed up the session with a sweet cake smash session with a pastel rainbow theme. Such a sweet session and an adorable little birthday girl!

Garden Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash Photography – Indianapolis Photographer

I’ve adored photographing this sweet girl over the last year! She has always been such a happy little one and her baby rolls and big smile are just to die for.

For her last session of the year, we did a garden themed cake smash session to celebrate her first birthday. Normally, by the end of  a cake smash session the little ones are over it. It’s a little over stimulating and no matter how much they like they cake they are just done and in tears. However not this birthday girl! We had to drag her away from that cake, big smile and all.  All of the details from the cake, decor, and her cutest little outfits all came together for an adorable session!

Boho Flower Cake Smash Session for 1st Birthday – Indianapolis Photographer

It’s no surprise that I love babies and nature mixed together. I love shooting newborns/kids outside and I love bringing floral elements into the studio. I also love neutral colors. So this session was a lot of fun for me and it might be one of my favorite cake smash sessions to date!

This little birthday girl had a boho themed cake smash session with pink/blush floral hoops. She loved her cake and was perfect in front of the camera. I love her little feet in the cake and how she just leaned over to eat the cake topper – so stinking cute!!

Be sure to make it all the way to the end of this post. You won’t want to miss the video of this little birthday girl during her cake smash session!!!

Blue and Burlap – Indianapolis Photographer

I’ve so much enjoyed watching this sweet boy grow over the last year! We finished off his grow-with-me sessions with an adorable cake smash session. The theme for this session was blue and burlap. Such a sweet them for a sweet birthday boy.  He seemed to enjoy his cake almost as much as he enjoyed having his picture taken!
