Leona was such a doll in her CNY Baby photography session. As she came into the studio she was immediately attracted to the garland of pink and gold balloons that had been placed conveniently within her reach. She giggled and laughed back at me as she swatted the balloons. Leona’s cake smash theme was “Some Bunny’s One” and she wore an adorable little bunny ear set that matched her BOHO mauve style dress.

Leona did not play shy with me. I’d capture a few images, then she would walk herself out of the setup and try to take my camera from my hands so she could see if she approved of the images taken. Though with her smile, it wasn’t hard to fill her gallery of beautiful portraits.

Leona also loved her cake which was special made by a family friend. She picked the floral off the top, tossing it aside so she could get to the sweet stuff. This is when the show really starts in the studio. Watching a 1-year old’s reaction as they get a whole cake to devour to themselves is a treat all on its own.

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 had her dad help me out by blowing bubbles to keep Leona engaged and looking up at the camera.

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! I have loved seeing Leona grow up since her newborn portraits. Her parents also came to see me for maternity portraits right before Leona made her earthly arrival.
