For a whole year and then some, I had the honor of capturing Jackson’s likeness. Even before he was born, his parents had their maternity session with me. From there, Jackson was in my studio for his newborn, 3-month, 6-month, (we skipped nine months due to Co-vid 19) and his 1-year cake smash portraits. So many precious memories and milestone that will never be forgotten!

For Jackson’s 1-year milestone session, I was able to create my first balloon garland. I have been anticipating making one for a while now, and now was able to give it a try. I may have used several bags of balloons in the Micky Mouse colors to make it work, but what child doesn’t love a balloon?

And of course, Jackson had his own cake to devour and enjoy. This part of the session is always interesting. You never know if your baby is going to do. Some 1-year old will walk off with their cakes. Other will go mouth first to try it and keep their hands clean. Some babies just want cake and dive right in, face first and hands on! The experience of a cake smash is always exciting.

Following the mess that the cake smash provides is a well-timed bubble bath.  This helps with clean-up and of course keeps the baby happy and excited for more portraits. Sometimes I have calm waters, others I have a raging river in my studio. It all depends on how much splashing is made by the little one in my tin tub.
