Hot Air Balloon Cake Smash | West Hartford, CT

After a year of COVID adjustments, we were finally able to get this little cutie in the studio for her OWN photoshoot! She was all scheduled to come see me for her newborn photos when COVID shut us down too long to be able to do them. You might remember that instead, we met for family photos with everyone in the fall. It was a great compromise, but it was time! And I can’t believe she’s already 1 and it was time for her first birthday cake smash! We decided to plan around a new backdrop that I had ordered and designed a hot air balloon cake smash. Mom loved the colors and even though it was on the simpler side, sometimes that’s just what is needed to make everything else stand out! And with all of the smiles that she gave us, it was just the right thing! We started out with some simple portraits before the cake smash, which always helps the kids warm up. She loved playing with the balloons and it was so hard to pick which smiles were our favorites! At cake time, we dived right in and loved all of the little decorations that Betty’s Cake Creations put onto it. We only wanted to get messy so far though – but luckily there was time for a fun bath with more smiles and adorable photos before the shoot was over! We loved what we created during this little one’s first birthday cake smash.
