There's not many things sweeter than a 1 year old covered in sugary cake! I am so excited to showcase this custom cake smash session!
Little Mackenzie and her momma are so special to my family. When she asked me to photograph her 1st birthday milestone, I was so excited! She had a vision and each week leading up to her session, we worked together to make each aspect perfectly beautiful.
Mom chose LMN Photography's Custom Cake Smash Session which includes BOTH outdoor and indoor session. In Mackenzie's case, we did her outdoor session during Golden Hour and her studio session the next day. With the Custom Cake Smash Session, you will get a smash cake designed to match your party theme or colors. This package allows the family to have both an indoor experience as well as the beauty of being outdoors. Also showcased in this session is the Custom Highchair Banner to be used for the session and for the little one's birthday party.
Turning 1 is one of the most important milestones in both a baby's life AND the family! It can be an overwhelming time filled with many different emotions. The thought of your little one no longer being "months" old, but 1 year old, pulls at your heart. A year seems to just fly by when you have a little one. They say "Don't blink, because before you know it, they will be in driving a car." My goodness, is this true!
With photography, one of the most precious aspects is being able to capture a child in their most natural being. I tell mom's and dad's to schedule a session at least every 6 months for a child. They change so quickly and being able to look back and see those changes, is something so very important and sentimental. I know going over to my grandma's house and looking through old photo albums, I am grateful that she always had her camera out to capture the moments of our family.
I hope you enjoy this session of smiles, some tears, beautiful golden hour natural light, and pure happiness!
First we started with a new favorite of mine, the upholstered oversized chair. We added balloons that were white and light shades of pink. With young children, forced smiles and unnatural movements can lead to unhappy parents and a displeased child. During this set up under the tree lined path here in Cypress, TX, we allowed the sweet 1 year old to play with the balloons, sit in whatever spot or position she wanted and just simply let her shine! For each session, I choose the best photos to complete your gallery but if you enjoy the rest, they are always available for purchase!
This location provides a peaceful and tranquil session each time. There are many different spots to use and for this Custom Cake Smash, I set up somewhat of a "station" session. When we finished with one set up, we moved on to the next one! For this princess, up next was the balloon basket.
As we walked closer and closer to the grand finale, CAKE SMASH, we stopped to let Kenzie get a first glance at her smash cake!
And now, the moment you've been waiting for....... Sweet squishy baby cheeks covered in sugary frosting and pure fun! I used my vintage high chair from Tomball Antiques adorned with Kenzie's custom Highchair Banner.
Usually after the wee one gets nice and messy, the session will end. Mom and Dad will clean off their babe and head home for a much needed bath! I asked Mom if we could do two more set ups since the sun was perfectly gorgeous. Let me just say, I think we are BOTH glad that we decided to keep going. And here's why.....
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the S Family for choosing me as their family's photographer. It's moment such as a 1st Birthday Smash Cake Session that will be in my heart for years to come. Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Mackenzie Ann!
