Another one of my newborns has reached his first-year milestone! Mr. Graham honored me with his presence in studio for his cake smash and bubble bath portrait session.  It took him a few minutes to warm up to me, but before the session was over, he would crawl up to me between takes and insist on seeing some of his portraits on the back of my camera! Honestly, this behavior has been trending with one-year-olds and I love it!

Together, with his mama, we designed and pulled together a woodsy theme set up with buffalo check as the main design. She brought in crates and trees and I pulled out some of my wooden props including my birch bark bed and antique sled. I even made a buffalo check quilt and pillow to match the scene. When sessions are scheduled in advance, I can create new props and construct a new scene that will be used first for your baby.

The bubble bath is always blast of water through my studio. I keep extra towels on standby just for the flood that most likely will occur. During this part of the session, I ask parents to help me out by blowing bubbles to bring out the magic in the birthday baby’s eyes!

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!
