Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Outdoor Family Session and Cake Smash – Indianapolis Family Photographer

I always love photographing this sweet family. This session was extra special since it was the little guy’s 1st birthday session. We started the family session outdoors with everyone and ended it with an outdoor cake smash! It was a perfect night for a perfect little family. The coordinating outfits were absolutely perfect! I love the color and style coordination that took place and definitely enhanced the photos.  What beautiful photos to treasure forever!

Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This birthday boy was a COVID baby born at the beginning of the pandemic. We had to do his newborn session outdoors due to local restrictions (not that I’m complaining because I LOVE outdoor newborn sessions) and everything about his first year wasn’t how his parents had planned since we were in a pandemic!
Fast forward a year, and here we are having his cake smash! Everything about this session was perfect. He was happy, he loved the cake, and we made some great memories/pictures. I am so glad that we were able to celebrate!!

Lumberjack 1st Birthday Cake Smash – Indianapolis Photographer

Timber! This little handsome fella is ONE! We celebrated by having a Lumberjack cake smash theme with a little bit of wild one thrown in for good measure. I loved the way this theme came together and let’s talk about the adorable cake! I love the texture on it and how it looks so much like a log. Gosh, I just love working with this particular cake shop! There is a pull back shot at the end of the post where you can get a little behind the scenes glimpse of the set up for the cake smash. We definitely had a great time!

Purple Floral Boho 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

Boho anything, the color purple, and flowers are all some of my favorite things. So when you combine them all together and throw in a cute kid you are bound to get something amazing – this cake smash session!

Everything about this session bring me joy. This birthday girl was as happy as could to to eat her birthday cake. The cake was made special for her as it’s gluten and dairy free. I was assured by the birthday girl and her parents that even though it doesn’t have gluten or dairy the cake was still delish! It’s from a local cake shop called No Label at the Table. If you haven’t heard of it you should check it out! It’s run by employees who are all on the autism spectrum and the entire bakery is gluten and dairy free.

I digress about the cake, but enjoy these adorable pictures of this 1st birthday cake smash!

Rookie of the Year 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

This was a rookie of the year cake smash and this little man was adorable and fun to have in the studio! He was a happy little birthday boy, but when he had enough, that was it. No worries though, we still got lots of great pictures before that happened! I LOVED the coordinating outfits and the black/white combo was just perfect- down to his little shoes and mom’s too!

Strawberry Loving Cutie – Cake Smash First Birthday Photography

This adorable little girl liked the strawberries more than the cake. We actually had to take the strawberries away from her to get her to actually try the cake. She was clever- she ended up picking strawberries from behind her by the time she was done with the session! I would say that her parents know her very well to have this be the theme of her cake smash session! Speaking of her mama, she was a bit nervous going into the session because she was afraid her daughter would be shy (like she normally is – got to love the COVID baby life!) but we gave her a little cake and she opened right up! When in doubt, add strawberries! This little ONE adored them!

Green and Gold Boho Cake Smash – Cake Smash Photography

This handsome little red head was a hoot! He had the biggest smiles and was just the happiest little one year old you ever met. He had the prettiest green eyes that just popped while he was wearing this adorable green romper that mom picked out for his cake smash session. This session was a green and gold boy boho themed 1st birthday cake smash. This little guy’s mom wanted to pick a theme that would go well with her home’s decor so she could print them and put them on display. I love when clients think ahead about where and how they want to use their pictures! I’m captivated by this sweet boy and I hope I get to see him again soon!

Winnie the Pooh 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Blue and Yellow

I know I’m not supposed to have favorites, but I adore these clients! They have been clients since their oldest was born and you know it’s going to be a fun shoot when they show up!

This first birthday cake smash session was Winnie the Pooh themed with soft/pastel blues and yellows. Pooh is holding the infamous red balloon. I had to do some research on the red balloon since I didn’t know much about it. But apparently the balloon is considered a male character (not an inanimate object) in the show. I love learning new things about pop culture and this was a fun little set-up.

Birthday boy, August, was a happy little guy (per his usual) for his cake smash session! At the end of the session we even added big brother, Luca, in for a few bites!!

Purple, Gold, Maroon, and Pink Birthday Shoot – Cake Smash Session

I’ve been photographing these three adorable siblings since the oldest was tiny. This session was bittersweet because I know that I don’t get to see this sweet family every few months now. Here is to hoping they have another little cutie soon! 🙂

This adorable cake smash session included some of my favorite colors – purple, gold, maroon, and pink. The birthday girl was nothing but smiles for the whole session! At the end of the cake smash we let the siblings in on the fun and it was adorable!
