I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Here at Lovely Fitzgerald Photography I love cake smashes! They are simply hysterical and so much fun to watch as baby explores, often for the first time, the world of sugar! This past week, I had the pleasure of photographing Jackson to celebrate his first birthday!
Baby’s first year comes with lots of milestones and changes! As both a mom and a photographer, I cannot stress enough how important it is to document these stages along the way. The turning point where your child transitions from a baby into a wobbly toddler is usually right at their first birthday. What better way to celebrate and capture these memories than by doing a 1-year-old session that includes a Cake Smash? It is fun, messy, exciting and most importantly, something you’ll never want to forget!
Worried about the mess? I bring a tub with me to give baby a bath afterwards which gives us the double benefit of cleaning up your messy child while giving us the opportunity to capture some photos of your child all bubbly!
If you are looking for a fun and creative way to announce your child’s first birthday, a great way to do this is to have the cake smash and photo session a week or two before your child’s party and then create custom photo cards to send out as invitations or announcements. Friends and family will love getting these pictures of your little one!
If you have a baby that is approaching their first birthday or are looking for a fun and creative way to announce your child’s first birthday, please contact me and I would be happy to come up with a custom idea to fit your wants and needs!
Cake smashes aren’t just for first birthdays! I have done plenty of cake smashes for 2 year olds and up, so if you’ve already missed the boat for your child’s first birthday, don’t despair, it’s not too late!
