What a better way to celebrate turning one than with a minnie mouse cake smash! We welcome Miss Lulu back to the studio (we saw her just the previous week at our Photos With Santa event too!) for some first birthday portraits and a cake smash. Her mother and I decided on a Minnie Mouse theme and of course Betty at Betty’s Cake Creations was able to make a gorgeous pink cake to match! We also used our matching minnie mouse banner from Little Peanuts and with some new balloons and other decorations we had quite the set! We started off with some photos of the family together and then moved on to pictures of Lulu by herself. The little lady was somewhat unsure of the entire event and the cake. This happens sometimes and we just have to be ok with how they feel! We still took plenty of photos of her that her parents can look back on and smile. Babies at age 1 cannot verbalize how they are feeling and it’s hard to know what might set them off. Still, it was a great session with this family and I love how the pink color worked with her gorgeous skin tone! Enjoy some of the photos from her session below!
