Olympia Baby Photographer – First Birthday Cake Smash Session Share


You don’t realize just how fast one year can go by until you have a baby. The day your little one is born will be forever captured in your memory and then you blink and three months have gone by and then before you know it you have a first birthday celebration to plan!

When this mama contacted me to plan her sweet baby girl’s first birthday session she knew she wanted the colors to be pink and tiffany blue and super girly! We talked about all the details of the cake smash session during the weeks before her session so that the session would be perfect! The mama brought in the gorgeous cake in the perfect shade of tiffany blue and the name banner to hang behind baby. I supplied the pink and white poms and the balloons and the bejeweled cake stand. She also texted me pictures of the outfits that the birthday girl was going to wear and I matched my backdrops to the outfits. I love details and getting all the details just right is the best way to make a stunning photograph!

When this lovely family arrived to the session, the mama asked if they could do a progression picture of the same pose we did at their newborn photography session. Yes! Yes! Yes! I love progression pictures. They really show how much your little squish has changed and grown. Maybe we can do another one at her second birthday session!


If you live in the Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia area and you are looking for a newborn or a photographer to capture your baby’s first birthday contact me! I would love to chat with you about what you are looking for and to create your dream newborn session or your dream cake smash session. I only do a limited amount of sessions per month, booking early is recommended!
