Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Cake Smash & First Birthday Photography

Shaelyn is One – Pink, Gold, and Mint Floral Balloon Arch Cake Smash

Yay for another adorable cake smash session on the books for this wonderful family! I’ve had so much much fun watching and capturing all three of these kiddos throughout their first year. This cake smash session *might* have been my favorite of the three. We did a floral balloon arch in pinks, gold, and mint. It was a new combo for me but I’m obsessed! Shaelyn, the birthday girl, was a sweetheart and was all about her birthday cake.

Blush & Silver Winter ONEderland Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photography

I have had quite a few first birthday celebratory cake smash sessions lately and this cute one year old was a little stingy on the smiles. UNTIL….we brought out the cake! Then she couldn’t stop smiling! This sweet little girl made us work for the smiles, but once we gave her some cake- she gave her smiles freely! We celebrated with a popular theme- winter ONEderland; however we had a different twist on the colors. It turned out great!

Blue Ombre Cake Smash Session

This sweet boy was as adorable as could be with those bright blue eyes and red hair. He was a sweet little lover who warmed up to me, and having his pictures taken quickly. He was so much fun for the cake smash portion of his birthday session. I love how his sparkly blue eyes matched the backdrop. He had some wonderful expressions and his smiles are just out of this world! Happy First Birthday sweet boy!

Baby Boho Cake Smash – Indianapolis Photographer

This sweet birthday girl drove all the way from Terre Haute, IN for her cake smash session and I’m so glad she did! She was as happy as could be and loved having her picture taken. Her cake smash session theme was blush boho and this little birthday girl loved every moment of her cake smash. Normally by the end of a cake smash session the birthday kids are over it. They are over stimulated and don’t want anything to do with the cake. This is why we typically get a crying shot at the end of the cake smash session. Not this little lady! She was ear-to-ear smiles all the way though her session!

Outdoor Cake Smash & Family Photography – Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis

Cake Smash sessions are some of my favorite and when we get to do family photos and an outdoor cake smash, it is even better. We aren’t able to have a themed smash, but the beautiful outdoors makes the perfect backdrop for the photos. We did this session at Eagle Creek Park and this location has a lot of hiking to get to the shooting area. These guys handled it with ease despite the heat! The outdoor cake smash at the end was adorable despite the little one not wanting to eat the cake.

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!
