Burke is ONE – Cookie Monster Cake Smash Session

Over the past year, I have had the pleasure of watching Burke grow.  He is so full of expressions!  He was a little apprehensive about this cake smash experience at first, but as time went on he seemed to enjoy himself.  Happy First Birthday, Burke!  You are such a cute little cookie!

Bennett is One – Indianapolis Cake Smash Photography

It’s been so much fun watching Bennett grow over the last year! He was also lucky enough to be my 1st session since I went on maternity leave. I’m not officially back from maternity leave yet, but I made a few exceptions and let a few sessions slip in so that I could ease back into work.

Bennett didn’t disappoint for his cake smash session. He has an adorable little smile, big blue eyes, and that almost red hair.

Circus Themed Cake Smash Session – Lydia’s First Birthday in Westfield, IN

I’ve had the joy of photographing little Lydia every three months for the last year. I’ve loved working with Lydia and her whole family.

She finished up her grow with me session with a bang! She had some cute first birthday pictures and an epic cake smash. Let me tell you… she went to town on that cake.

Purple Butterfly Cake Smash – Payton is ONE

Sweet little Payton has been a joy to photograph throughout her first year. Her bright blue eyes, soft skin tones, and bubbly personality have been nothing but a joy to photograph. I’m super sad that she is turning one already – now I don’t have an excuse to see her every three months!

We went out with a bang for her one year session. We did a few formals and then ended with a purple butterfly cake smash. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

Triplet First Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Child Photography

You may remember these three from their newborn or six month session. I can’t believe these three are already a year old!

We partied in style for these lovely ladies first birthday. We did some standard portraits (I’m good with kids, but getting three one-year-olds to look at the camera at once was no easy task) and then an epic cake smash session.

Each little lady has their own unique personality and their own creative way of eating birthday cake. Good news is that they all loved the cake.

Plane Themed First Birthday Party – Indianapolis Birthday Party Photography

If you know me, you know that I love photographing first birthdays. Typically I do cake smash session in the studio (which is a blast), but every once in a while I photograph the actual birthday party.

I forgot how much fun these can be too!

Little Adam’s birthday party was a dream to shoot. Him mom put so much time and attention into all the details of his plane themed first birthday party. I hope you enjoy the ride on AWA (Adam Weller Airlines).

First Birthday Cake Smash Photography – Geist Child Photographer

This little sweetheart celebrated her birthday Korean style a few weeks back. After her birthday I got to go back and photograph her cake smash session.

Before we smashed the cake we took some more traditional one year old pictures. She loved her sun glasses and was full of smiles!
