When a client contacts me looking for information for first birthday photos, I get so excited. Especially if they’re a client who’s had a newborn session with me. Aside from newborn sessions, a first birthday photo shoot is one of my favorite sessions to photograph.
These sessions are a lot of fun to set up and of course, they usually include cake at the end. I love to help parents come up with special themes and colors for their cake smash set-ups.
This little client is a member of one of my favorite families. I’ve photographed his brother since birth and also this little guy throughout his first year. You can see one of big brother’s sessions, here.
For this little guy’s first birthday photos, mom asked for a lumberjack theme. While usually I provide most of the props and decorations, Mom really had quite a few awesome props of her own that she brought along. I love how this cake smash set-up turned out. Oh, and this little guy LOVED his cake. We actually had to stop him from eating.
Here are a few of my favorite images from Calen’s first birthday photo shoot. Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy!
