It was just about one year ago that this sweet bub came in for his newborn session, now he is a big boy turning one! So when his mama contacted me to schedule his first birthday session I was excited to get to see them again! It still amazes me how fast a year can go by!
His mama told me she wanted to do a dinosaur themed cake smash and I thought this is going to be super fun!! And when she told me she was bringing a cake shaped like a little dinosaur egg sitting in a nest, well I just couldn’t wait to see that! It’s not every day that a birthday boy gets to smash a dinosaur egg cake! This session was a true collaboration between his mama and myself. In the weeks before his session, we emailed back and forth different ideas and finally decided that she would do the leaves and I would do the dinosaurs, the tree trunks and the dino footprints. Then we they arrived for his session everything went together perfectly! (I love when that happens!) I asked her what she thought he was going to do when she set him down with his cake and she thought he was going to just smash it all up – she was absolutely right! When his mama set him down by his cake he just dove right in, no hesitation, no delay!
I love custom first birthday photography sessions! So far this month, I have done first birthday photo sessions in the themes of : Star Wars, Dr. Who, Mickey Mouse, Princess with polka dots, and now dinosaurs! Love it!! Each one is so unique and it is fun to create something just for baby’s big day! What does your baby love? Maybe it would make a great theme for a first birthday cake smash session!
If your baby is turning one in September, October, November or December, now is the time to reserve his or her first birthday session. Contact me today to reserve your baby’s session!
