Olympia First Birthday Photos
Happy First Birthday to this sweet nugget! This little wild guy just turned one year old! Isn’t he just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? He was all smiles from beginning to end of his jungle-themed birthday shoot, and he was so much fun to photograph!
about this cake smash session
We started out his first birthday photo session with a traditional first year portrait where he wore the most adorable onesie with suspenders and “Wild One” tie. Before we got him dressed for cake duty, we took a cute, simple photo of him sitting in a little wooden box. He was just as happy as could be no matter where we asked him to sit. He proudly showed off his little toothy grin for the camera again and again.
After the portraits, we kept the Wild One theme going with an amazing cake created by my cake decorator in a “wild” jungle theme. She did such a great job! Two monkeys climbed on the sides and a little giraffe sat atop the cake! The birthday boy was dressed for the task in some very adorable overalls and no shirt. Sure enough, he had a blast with his cake! I would have been surprised if he had shied away from it. He loved the little animals, and I think he thought it was more of a toy than food. He did try a little bit, but he had more fun smooshing the bright green icing between his cute hands.
Although he didn’t get too terribly messy, we needed to clean up the green icing. What better way to do that than with an extra bubbly bath!? We finished up the session with a bubble bath filled with a whole bunch of rubber duckies! I’m not going to lie, these are my favorite photos from this session. His big smile and bright eyes just illuminated the studio as he played happily in the tub. What a wonderful birthday session with this handsome little man!
