As a St. Louis Family Photographer, I am going to be honest, this is my first cake smash. I know, I know! Why haven’t I jumped on this sooner? I was beyond nervous but it helped that I knew this little girl and her mama! Her mama happens to be our hairstylist and just love her to bits. So, when I heard her little girl, whom they were blessed to have in the first place, was going to be turning one I asked her mama to go out on a limb and allow me to photograph her. I am just so happy she said yes because these images couldn’t have been more perfect.
The shots where she is pulling off her bow are the cutest but I don’t think they’ll stop the fact that while she dug into the cake, she didn’t exactly think to try and eat it. It was just adorableness all around.
This is one of the many reasons I just love doing what I do – photographing families and children, expecting mamas, and everything that motherhood entails. If you have a baby who is turning one soon, let’s get ya in the books for that cake smash! But birthday sessions aren’t just for babies turning one! You can photograph any child’s birthday session at any age! Let’s talk themes!
After seeing this cake smash, are you ready to schedule one for your little one? Let’s chat and talk about inspiration! I tailor each session to the child being photographed.
