Want to see the happiest birthday boy ever?! His name is Teddy and he came in for his cake smash session to celebrate turning one! But, it wasn’t his first time in front of my camera. Me and Teddy go all the way back to the days he was in his mama’s belly. I had the pleasure of capturing mom’s maternity photos and Teddy’s newborn photos. Here we are, one whole year later, celebrating sweet Teddy’s very first birthday!
With a sweet name like Teddy and his gorgeous round tug-at-your-heart-string eyes, you might be able to take a guess at the theme of his session. We just had to set him up in a scene that was ready for a fun camping adventure, full of teddy bears! Because we always include a custom-made cake for all of our birthday babies, we made sure that Teddy’s cake had a happy little black bear piped on the side. That little bear was ready for Teddy to dig his fingers in and enjoy his very first taste of delicious birthday cake!
Aside from the sweet teddy beats in his setup, Teddy’s family had a special request for his cake smash session. Their family owns a blanket that means so much to them, so they asked if we might be able to include it in the session. Of course, I never shy away from my clients’ requests! In fact, I always encourage them to bring any items with them to their session that might be family heirlooms or hold a special meaning to them. After all, your very first birthday is kind of a big deal! So why not make it as special as possible? We worked the blanket into the backdrop of Teddy’s big camping adventure. And I think you’ll agree that it enhanced the overall look & feel of the shoot! Scroll down to see!
