First birthdays are such fun celebrations and I absolutely love capturing adorable cake smash moments, with all those epic smiles of excitement, hands covered in colorful frosting, cake innards flying everywhere, and sometimes even tear stained cheeks! Children are just so much fun to photograph and every time I have the opportunity to work with a little one, my heart fills with absolute joy. I especially love watching them grow, from the magical months inside their mama’s belly, to their newborn session, to their first year of life, and beyond. I recently had the pleasure of photographing baby Malachi’s first birthday cake smash celebration and it was so delightful to see how much he had grown since his precious newborn session last year.
My favorite part of Malachi’s cake smash session was watching him check out the giant Curious George that his mom, Anela, had brought as a prop, along with a fabulous little homemade cake she made, some brightly colored balloons, and his ridiculously cute Curious George suspenders outfit, complete with bow tie…can we say way too stinkin’ adorable!!! Oh, little Malachi, I am so grateful to be a part of your life and will always look forward to more fun photo sessions with you and your lovely family. 🙂

Of course, after all that cake smash fun…it’s time for a serious hose down!!!
