The First Birthday Session: More Than Just Pictures
When we take pictures of a child's first birthday, we're capturing more than just moments. It's like a special story we tell with our cameras.
Imagine the little one looking at the big birthday cake. They're curious and excited. When they taste the cake, you can see the happiness in their eyes. It's like they're telling us how much they love it. And their small hands reaching out are like a hug in a picture.
But there's something deeper too. The pictures show how the child has grown in the first year. They show the love and care parents give. It's the nights when parents stay awake to take care of them, the songs they sing to make them sleep, and all the cuddles they share.
Taking pictures on the first birthday isn't just about what we see. It's about what we feel. It's about the start of a new part of their life. When we look at these pictures in the future, they remind us of the good times, the love, and the amazing journey we're on.
So remember, the first birthday pictures are more than just photos. They're like a special way of showing how much we love and enjoy watching the child grow, one picture at a time.

There's something truly magical about the sitter stage of a baby's life. As they gain stability and start sitting up on their own, their curiosity and budding personality shine through. Sitter photo sessions give you the opportunity to encapsulate these incredible moments. It's a celebration of growth, exploration, and pure joy. I believe that every giggle, every twinkling eye, and every tiny milestone deserves to be cherished forever.

Tips for parents to ensure a successful cake smash session:
Choose the right time: Schedule the cake smash session when your child is rested and in a good mood. Avoid scheduling it during nap time or when they might be hungry.
Get a cake: Order or bake a cake specifically for the session. Opt for a smaller cake with a soft and easily smashable texture. I recommend a two or three-tiered 6" inch vanilla cake (not chocolate!). The icing should be white or pastels as bright/dark colors tend to stain skin and clothing. Be sure to avoid any potential allergens if your child has allergies.
Dress them up: Choose an outfit that you don't mind getting messy. Cute and colorful outfits often work well. You can also consider using a special birthday outfit or a diaper cover for a more festive look.
Enjoy the process: Remember that the cake smash session is meant to be a joyful and fun experience. Don't worry too much about perfection or a perfectly clean child. Embrace the mess and the laughter.
By following these tips, you can help create a memorable cake smash session that captures the joy and excitement of your child's first birthday celebration.
I’m a mom to a boy with a passion for capturing life’s most treasured moments. I learned while watching my own child grow up that time is short. Days pass quickly, and months pass us even faster. My mission is to capture all of these sweet milestones so that you can cherish them for years to come. I can’t wait to capture these memories in your babies first big year!
Don’t just stop at newborn photography! The first year of your baby’s life changes in a blink of an eye. The sweet baby coos will form into small words, and them sleeping throughout the day will soon turn into them crawling around your house. You see them each day but may not notice the subtle changes to your baby’s appearance and achievements.
It was fun backyard first birthday session for baby Ryan in Santa Clarita,CA. He was my newborn client and was happy to see him again in one year.
We were crying” it was a text message from baby B’s parents after they received photos from her 6-month in-home photo session. I am ready to work day and night for text messages like this one.
