1 Year and Family Photos :: Miss L

I met with Miss L and her family in the studio for her one year portraits. This session had a little added excitement because her grandparents came along for the ride! Getting to involve grandparents in the photoshoot is something that is always exciting to me. Not only are they psyched to be included, but these one year and cake smash photos are something Miss L will definitely treasure.

We started off the session with family photos. I usually begin sessions with these so that little ones (and their parents) can get comfortable with the studio–and with me! This helps to ease into the solo portraits of the real star of the show. My assistant and I do everything we can to make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcome, but sometimes the little one still feels a little bit of stranger danger. Starting off with baby in mom’s or dad’s arms is a great way to get them feeling a little safer.

This session had a little bit of everything. Family portraits, one year photos, some of my winter seasonal props, and most importantly: the cake smash. Cake smashes are always some of the cutest sessions. Not to mention the messiest and the most fun!

Styling for this One Year Portrait Session

Since this session was right around the holiday season, little miss and her parents were dressed in festive colors for their family portraits. Miss L was in red while her parents were in dark green. Having the little one be in the brighter color is a great way to incorporate numerous colors but still have Miss L be the star. In the photos of her with her parents, she stands out due to the bright red. I also love that in the extended family photos, her grandparents are also in red.

For the cake smash photos, it was all about pink and gold. This is a very popular color scheme, especially for cake smashes. This family chose to go with a hot pink instead of a lighter, bubblegum pink. This made for a fun and colorful backdrop for Miss L’s cake smash. And clearly Miss L didn’t hate the cake!

All About The Cake Smash

One year and cake smash photos are hands down some of the most fun we have in the studio. And they’re always some of the most popular on social media sites and on the blog. And this sweet pink and gold cake smash is both adorable and gorgeous. Which is why I made sure to include it in my Cake Smash YouTube slideshow! Check out more of my YouTube videos here.
