In Category: ‘cake smash’

i recently posted sweet mayson’s one year session,

but i still have one more session to share of this beautiful girl.

every month, little mayson came over for a quick session,

incorporating elements from one of her mommy’s favorite pictures from her newborn session.

at her last session, we couldn’t help but add in a little cupcake smash, too.

i’m going to miss taking this beautiful baby’s pictures every month.

mayson- i just love you to pieces.mayson blog020 731x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0011 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0021 731x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0031 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0041 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0061 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0071 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0081 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0091 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0101 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0111 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0121 710x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0131 779x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0151 752x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0141 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog0161 682x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog017 732x1024 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog018 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash} mayson blog019 mayson lynn :: her first year {and a cake smash}

oh, how quickly babies grow.

i have had the very sweet privilege of capturing mr. ellison’s life, even before he was born.

we’ve done a maternity session, his newborn session, and a seven month session….

crazy that he is already one year old!

i was so excited that mom wanted to do a cake smash…. they are always so much fun!

adorable ellison started out his session rather unsure, quietly sucking his little thumb and checking me out.

but once that cake came out…. he was one very happy little guy.

ellison… you are a precious, beautiful baby boy.ellison blog001 791x1024 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog002 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog003 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog004 860x1024 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog005 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog006 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog007 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog008 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog009 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog010 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog011 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog012 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog013 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog015 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog016 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog017 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog018 788x1024 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog019 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog020 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog021 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog022 854x1024 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog023 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog024 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog025 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog026 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog027 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog028 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!} ellison blog029 ellison samuel :: one year old {and a cake smash!}

it seems like just yesterday little conrad was in my studio for his four month session.

now he is almost one year old!

conrad is still just as cute, but has definitely become a busy little guy.  he kept us moving the whole time!

i absolutely love getting to watch these sweet babies grow up.

it’s always so much fun to watch these sweet babes try their very first cake.

for many of them, it’s their first introduction to sugar!

while some babies dig right in, others aren’t always in love with their first cake.

little conrad decided he wasn’t much of a fan and quickly wanted to be done with the whole thing.

i have a feeling he’ll come around soon icon smile conrad kristopher :: one year old {and a cake smash!}

little miss olivia.

i cannot believe you are turning ONE!

it seems like we just photographed your mommy’s pregnant belly, and your newborn portraits

(which sadly that blog somehow got deleted from the archives) .

but here you are… spunky, smiling, and adorable.

i love every single one of those chubby baby rolls!

we decided to go back to the field we used for olivia’s maternity session

amazing the difference that one little year can make.

olivia is a very lucky little girl.

her big brother, marco, is the best, and he just adores his baby sister.

i have two little girls at home that are convinced they are going to marry him

(and i would love it if one of them did…nothing wrong with an arranged marriage, right?)

i get to photograph a lot of newborns,

and it is always amazing to me when i photograph a one-year-old.

in one short year, these little people go from sleeping, crying infants, unable to do anything on their own.

just a short year later, they are walking, beginning to talk, eating real food, and playing.

beautiful baby jaxon is almost one year old, and full of sunshine.

i have no doubt this past year has been full of joy for everyone in his life.

one of my favorite things about one-year-old sessions are the cake smashes!!!!

getting to watch these little ones eat their first sugar is pretty fun.

some kids dive right in and others want nothing to do with it.

sweet jaxon liked playing with it, but he wasn’t so sure he wanted to eat much.

happy birthday, little jaxon!

i think it goes without saying,

the best thing about a baby’s first birthday is watching them eat their cake.

some kids dig right in and paint themselves with frosting.

and others decide they want nothing to do with it.

it’s always so fun to watch them discover something totally new, and see their little personalities come out in the process.

i got to spend a morning with sweet little lyla and her loving parents.

she wasn’t feeling too great, and wasn’t too sure about taking pictures.

but after a few minutes with her cake…

she became one happy little girl.

happy birthday, miss lyla.

you are precious!
