Tacoma First Birthday Photography | Donut Grow Up

I mean, can you get over how cute this birthday girl is??!! I loved everything about her cake smash session to celebrate her first birthday here in Tacoma. From her smile to her pigtails to her traditional outfit to the yummy “donut cake,” it was just perfect! I mean, after all, why have donuts OR cake when you can have both? It is the best of both worlds!

We started with the traditional portrait part of the session. We all thought that there was a very good chance that the pretty little hat was going to be off in a mere 1.2 seconds, but NOPE! She kept that hat on for just about the whole time, and she looked absolutely adorable in it! I love the traditional outfit she wore; the colors of the outfit are just so soft and magical. They went perfectly with the vibrant colors and donut theme. (If you want to see some other fun and unique birthday traditions from cultures around the world, check out this article by Fatherly.)

We then moved to the cake smash portion of the session. She found the donuts “interesting,” but she was way more excited about the strand of pearls that we had given her earlier to distract her from playing with her hat. The beads made her smile and laugh, so we were happy to just do cake and pearls pictures. Maybe Mom and Dad were at least able to enjoy a piece of the unsmashed cake. I mean, the cake not only looked adorable but delicious too! 

Then we made it to the final part of the cake smash session. This part is all about ducks, bubbles, and smiles! She loved the ducks and was amazed at how many little yellow rubber duckies there were. Of course, she continued to give me some great big smiles which made it an easy wrap up to the day. She was such a joy throughout the entire session, always offering up giggles and smiles. I hope you had the best of birthdays, sweet girl!
