Here at Lovely Fitzgerald Photography I simply love cake smashes! More often than not a one year old has never had cake before and never really been exposed to sugar, so it is always hilarious to see their reaction to tasting cake for the first time. Little ones either love it, or hate it. We were a little weary because we were starting our session during Miss Ainsley’s nap time and it looked like a melt down was in the near future, however as soon as she dipped that little finger in her first cake and tasted the sweetness for the first time she was happy as could be!! She really lucked out with an extra yummy red velvet cake too! I’m not gonna lie, I wanted some myself!
Ainsley had a blast digging in to her first birthday cake and didn’t mind getting dirty! 🙂
I have photographed Ainsley’s cousins before, so loved seeing how much she resembles them in looks and personality. She is the spitting image of her cousin Yasmine, who is also adorable!!
Your child’s first few years come with a lot 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. You will never look back and regret that you took the time to get portraits of your child, only that you didn’t. Especially the first year or two, I recommend getting portraits done every 3-6 months because changes happen so fast!! After that I recommend, at the minimum, a yearly portrait of your child and your family!
