First Birthday Cake Smash Session 2017- West Hartford Baby Photographer

This past week, I had the pleasure of photographing one of my returning clients for their adorable second daughter’s cake smash/1st birthday photo session. This baby LOVED her cake smash experience and was all smiles throughout. We also snuck in some family portraits too, so we were able to accomplish quite a bit in our one hour session time. Here are a few of my favorite shots from our session:

Cake Smash Session- West Hartford 1st Birthday Photo Sessions

One of my returning clients brought her second daughter over for a cake smash session last week to celebrate her upcoming 1st birthday. Cake smash sessions with a baby who enjoys the cake are truly one of the most enjoyable things anyone could do and still somehow call it work. This little angel REALLY enjoyed her cake and she was all smiles for her shoot. I love photographing kids at this stage because they are old enough to be interactive with you and the camera, yet still young enough that they are 100% natural in front of the camera. Every shot is pure, real emotion every time and when a baby is loving his or her cake, that emotion is joy! I think I smiled for the entire time that I edited these shots. Here are a few of my favorites:

One Year Later…the 1st Birthday Cake Smash- Baby Photographer West Hartford, CT

About a year ago, I had two awesome photo shoots, both maternity and newborn, with a super sweet couple having their first baby! Now it is a year later and we came back  together into the studio to shoot their little one’s 1st birthday cake smash!! He was really fun to photograph and we had a blast watching him squish and devour the ENTIRE birthday cake. He did it with a very serious look on his face too! So adorable….here are a few of my favorites from our session:

Baby’s First Birthday and My First Studio Cake Smash!- First Birthday Photo Shoots- West Hartford, CT

Last week, I had my first ever home studio cake smash session….and I am sooooo excited about how cute these photos are! Back when I used to work as a photographer for a local photo studio, we used to do these types of sessions all the time and they were always one of my favorite things to photograph. I love cake smashes because it is such a blessing to be able to photograph a child experiencing something for the first time ever. Even though half of these sessions end in tears, it is still so fun to watch them go through the whole process and see how they will react. It is even more fun to watch when you’ve photographed that baby as a newborn! In one short year, they change dramatically!! I was able to do that today with one of my newborns from last spring. It was really awesome to be a part of documenting this big milestone for his family:-) Here are a few of my favorites from our session:
