Cake Smash

Barefoot & Balloons 1st Birthday Portraits {Orlando Birthday Portraits}

On one lovely morning, after a few previous weather issues I was able to meet this adorable family at the field. We were there to capture all the cutest of turning ONE and on that special day it was actually her birthday! She was a bit serious about sitting in her flower tent, but when it came for her portraits in her family's special rocking chair she was all smiles!

Little Miss T, I hope your birthday was super super special!

xoxo

Smash Cake Orlando | Happy Camper Turns One!

Thank you to this wonderful momma for stopping the studio for a planning meeting. We were able to mix her party decorations with our prop collection to create a super special camping cake smash theme!

Cake Smash sessions are super adorable and of course always a great test of my will power to not eat cake! :) Okay, Okay...I might sneak a bite or two of icing off my fingers while making adjustment to the birthday kiddo. 

Let's celebrate your kiddo with a fun studio or outdoor cake smash! Schedule a planning meeting to discuss cake styles, themes and party decor!

Have a great Wednesday!

Super Sweet 16 with Sugar on Top {Orlando Cake Smash Photographer}

A 16 year old cake smash?!?! Yes, please! Sometimes there are portrait sessions that reset your creative juices and this was one of them! It was a beautiful sunset in the field, with an incredibly beautiful, smart, football lovin' young lady!

When it came time for the cake smash, she worried about getting her gorgeous lace gold ombre dress dirty; as she was to wear it for her sweet 16 party. After a little convincing...similar to our 1 year olds, she dug into the cake with her hands and her face!!! 

*Mom and Dad you have raised an amazing daughter and you should be extremely proud!!

Cake Smash Orlando Photographer | Mr. D and His Cake

What a happy little monkey!! He had a wonderful time with his cake and I think I had even more fun capturing it. It is so cool with the babies just want to play and play until there is no cake left! I wonder what he would do with a cake at his 2nd birthday? Have a great Wednesday.

Central Florida 1st Birthday Portraits | Sometimes the best gifts come in small little packages

This may have been said by me once or twice, but starting a family has created an entire different perspective in how my I view each session. Only 1.5 months removed from my daughter's first birthday, I knew how important these portraits were to this family. It was my goal to capture her fun spunky personality.

This little girl continues to melt my heart. She had a few health issues early on that has placed her on the smaller side, but i think that is part of what makes her so adorable. A sweet little happy peanut! She might be a future "antique buyer", as you can see; she really enjoyed the antique highchair and her families antique chair. Love when families incorporate items from their home, it is a great way to personalize the session. 

Thank you little "I" for a fun 1st Birthday Portrait Session full of laughs and smiles, can't wait to watch you grow!
