Miss V’s First Birthday Celebration :: North Andover 1 Year and Cake Smash Photos
The first birthday is such an exciting milestone. Which is why it is always so much fun to celebrate it! For Miss V’s first birthday, her family came to my studio from North Andover to celebrate with some 1 year photos and a cake smash. We started off with family portraits (including a very 2020 family photo with face masks!). Getting some sibling photos of Miss V and her big brother was a priority for mom and dad. And I absolutely love how these sibling portraits turned out. Miss V got hugs, kisses, and cuddles from her big brother. There were lots of big smiles. And even a few outfit changes for Miss V!
Simple Cake Smash Inspiration
And then it was time for the fun (and messy) part of the day: the cake smash! We went with a simple set up using pink and gold. A star bunting hung on the wall, balloons scattered on the floor. I love an intricate set design for cake smash sessions. But this is a great example of how simple can still be beautiful! There was a big emphasis on the family and sibling portraits in this session. This meant that this session had a ton of variety even before the cake smash. Some families prefer to have the main focus of the session be on the smash. While other families prefer the smash to just be one aspect of the session. There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to celebrating the first birthday milestone for your little one!
