We last visited with Mark and his parents when they booked me for a family Christmas session this past December and they had asked about my first birthday options. I was so glad when they decided to come back for his special first birthday milestone to my Newington, CT photography studio. With his Daddy owning a construction company and already having a lot of buffalo plaid sweatshirts, I suggested a lumberjack cake smash would be the perfect theme option for him! And this decor is usually pretty easy to find so I loved being able to put something together for his photoshoot. Mark arrived looking adorable in his plaid sweatshirt, jeans, and boots. Now this little guy is on the MOVE! He just wanted to walk around exploring the set and seeing what his Daddy was up to. Although it’s a little challenging at times with walkers, I love trying to capture a standing photo of one-year-olds if I can and he gave us a great one! Cake time was delicious as always with yumminess by Betty’s Cake Creations – can you believe this “stack of pancakes” is actually a cake?! I couldn’t believe how perfect she created my vision and it worked beautifully with his set! Mark loved the “syrup” topping and frosting, and then decided a spoon was a good tool to really make a mess! 😉 After cake time was bath time and although it took a few minutes to keep him sitting, rubber ducky play was fun! We had such a great session and I can’t wait to see his images in print! Don’t forget to book your custom milestone sessions at least 1 month in advance to ensure availability and planning purposes. Spring and summer are going to be busy!
