Mia's 1 Year Old
As many of you know, newborn sessions are my favorite to photograph, but next on the list is one year sessions that include a themed cake smash. Mia and her family came into the studio recently to document her birthday and we had a blast! This cute little girl has a bright bubbly personality and was a breeze to work with.
Mia's mom did a wonderful job preparing for the shoot. She purchased a bunch of items off Etsy to be incorporated into Mia's session and sent me photos so I could coordinate the sets accordingly. Because mom communicated with me in advance the sets were designed and ready before the family even walked in the door. This allowed us to work quickly and keep little Mia's attention - making for a very smooth session! Mom and dad didn't plan to be in any photos but I'm a sucker for Converse so I made them jump in for a quick shot!
Capturing the essence of being ONE in this photo! A cozy blanket, some special stuffed friends, her silky little lovie and a few books. All things that are important to Mia and make her smile!
A baby and her balloons. Love the pastels mixed with gold!
A quick switch of the backdrop allowed me to capture more of the special outfit mom purchased! Check out those cute gold shoes!
Mom said she wanted pinks and golds for Mia's cake smash photos. A few days before the session Kara and I spent some time designing this set and I am super excited to say that this is my all time favorite cake smash set and I am pretty sure Mia liked it too!
Typically by the end of the cake smash session little ones can be a bit cranky and are ready to be done with photos, but Mia was still all smiles; so instead of the bathtub we took her outside to get cleaned up. So glad it was still warm enough to be outside because the resulting photo is adorable! Happy Birthday little Mia, it was so fun having you and your family in the studio!
