I photograph cake smash sessions all the time… at least once a week. But they have never been as emotional for me as this one. Because this cake smash session was for my baby. This last year just flown by. I can’t believe my baby is one!! I know people say it all the time, but you don’t understand how true it is until it happens to you. This session left me teary eyed and that sad. My first baby isn’t a baby any longer. Yes, I am excited for all the milestones to come, but I’m also nostalgic for all the milestones that he has already mastered.
That being said, it also made me grateful for all the pictures and videos I have have of this little guy. It made me excited for these pictures to remember and cherish these times. Sorry for such a sappy post, but I just had to share. The first year goes WAY too fast. Don’t forget to cherish and capture these times with your little one. They will be gone in a blink of an eye.
Before I had a kid, my photographer friends would tell me how much harder it was to shoot their own kids. I don’t think I really believed them until I had my own. Here is a little behind the scenes to see what went into this shoot.
