Another beautiful baby has reached their momentous 1st milestone! Miss Ariella is my sweet niece from 2020, and her mama is my amazing newborn assistant. You may have seen her newborn portraits on my social media. You can read all about it on my blog!

Ariella is making acquaintance with her pancake stash | CNY Child Photography

Ariella had a unique cake smash. Her mama substituted the traditional cake with a stack of fluffy pancakes and topped it with a tower of whipped, banana pudding frosting and some blackberries and sprinkles!! MMM! As you view Ariella’s gallery, you will see in her little fingers a berry or two.

Along with berries and sprinkles topping the pancake stack, Ariella was backed by 100+ balloons hanging from a garland on the backdrop. In my 1-year sessions, I love to create a unique setup for the baby, either color schemed or themed. Or if you prefer a cleaner look, there’s nothing like a basic setup of backdrop and baby!

My Cake Smash sessions are in 3 parts to capture a variety of portraits and the personality of your one-year-old. I start with a classic or themed setting, move onto the messy cake smash, and finish it off with the bubble bath blast! The bubble bath is always a flood of water through my studio. I keep extra towels on standby for the surge that most likely will occur. During this part of the session, I have parents help me out by blowing bubbles to bring out the magic in the birthday baby’s eyes!

As a CNY Child Photographer, I specialize in newborn through one-year sessions. That is three gorgeous sessions of you baby, growing, developing, and changing that you will cherish forever.
