Have you ever had a day that just comes together perfectly? Every detail and small element falls perfectly in line? Well, that was the session for me. It was an absolute honor working with this little guy and his mama. She contacted me a couple of months before her little man’s birthday session and I knew right from the start that we were going to have so much fun together.
A Classic Smash
She was open to new ideas, and I loved collaborating with her on this session. Her only request was that the cake smash be light and bright, filled with white balloons and have a classic minimalist cake with a touch of greenery. Done and done! I fell in love with every stage of this session; from the planning, and the setup, to working on the final images! However, my favorite part of the session was of our little man wearing his traditional Korean first birthday outfit, which was so incredibly adorable! The outfit consisted of many pieces and we were able to capture quite a few super cute images before he decided that it was time for the shoes and hat to come off!
As I sit here reminiscing on this session, I can’t help but giggle at the memory. For the touch of greenery (for the cake to sit on) I sat and wondered where I was going to get some green leaves, ferns to be exact, and then I felt so silly because all I had to do was step out of the studio and into the woods in my outside studio area where there are tons of ferns! I love the simplicity and classic look of the white backdrop with the white balloons and this little man wearing all white, just too cute! All in all this was the perfect session, with the perfect little model!
