This Tacoma first birthday photoshoot had all the necessary ingredients for fun!
We started out this Tacoma first birthday photoshoot by first getting in a few poses with mom and dad!! Yes, parents are totally allowed to get in a few photos with the birthday baby when they come in for the photoshoot!
After that, mom and dad stepped out of view of the camera and the birthday boy took center stage!
When mom was coordinating the shoot with me, she asked if she could have a setup that was a classic birthday celebration. That meant using a balloon wall, a party hat, and a birthday cake full of fun colorful sprinkles!
The balloon wall was monochromatic and soft white! We added in some fun colors through the polka dot party hat and the confetti style sprinkles on the cake!
I always have polka dot party hats on hand at the studio for birthday shoots. But as you can imagine, little ones usually have their own ideas about wearing hats.
Luckily, the cake typically serves as a distraction! Once the hat is on the baby forgets all about it and focuses on the yummy birthday cake. This time, the cake and party hat combo worked like a charm and this little guy wore his party hat for the entire session!! Can you believe that?!
Not only did he keep his polka dot party hat on for the entire shoot, but he was full of the sweetest little smiles! You’ll get to see the biggest smile on his face when he is tasting the sprinkles on his birthday cake. It’s beyond adorable!
