Cake smash session—Newtown, CT—Sneak Peek!

One of the best things about being a baby photographer is sharing milestones in my clients’ lives like the first birthday of their very first baby girl. And along with being very fun throughout the photo session, this beautiful girl knows how to celebrate in style! With her mom and her adoring aunt in tow, this young lady turned on the charm in almost every photo we took of her. Looking very elegant for a 1-year-old, she rocked the tutu, headband, and pearls like a pro. With those big, intense eyes, I think this little girl is going to have many photo sessions in her future.

First birthday cake smash sessions can get messy quickly! But, when we brought out the cake for the cake smash part of the photo session, this girl was more interested in offering it to everyone else than digging into it herself. She did, however, enjoy the cake and have a good time in the end.

Interesting note about the cake: When the girl’s aunt went to pick it up before the photo session, the bakery said “No charge – just go have a good time”! This was one of their 26 acts of kindness to commemorate the lives lost in Sandy Hook, CT over 3 months ago.

When I started my photography business I knew that I wanted to produce timeless, classic images that families would cherish for a lifetime. I never really thought about what that really meant until last December.  Working with wonderful, loving families, like this little girl has, to capture their special family moments is truly one of the most rewarding lines of work I can think of these days.
