Annabel – First Birthday and Cake Smash

FILED IN: First Birthday, Kids

Oh my I am so very far behind on blogging! It’s been a busy year – the first half of which was slow business wise as I was recovering (very slowly) from neck surgery and couldn’t do much and the rest of which has been filled with a lot of wonderful newborn babies, families, children and food photography here in the Hudson Valley!


Many of my newborn photo clients also sign up for my Baby’s First Year Plan which includes a newborn photo session and then sessions around 4 months, 8 months and one year to capture all of the great milestones like pushing up on his or her tummy (usually around 4 months), sitting unassisted (usually around 8 months) and of course a first birthday session including portraits and a cake smash! Even if families don’t opt for the full Baby’s First Year Plan, I still offer sessions any time – Annabel’s parents had me photograph her newborn session, a fall family session and then her first birthday portraits – it’s so much fun to see my little clients again and again and to watch their personalities emerge!


Isn’t she just adorable?! Annabel’s mom bought this cute little romper and made this fabulous burlap bunting for her session which was themed in purple, aqua and white. I might have to hire her to make more for me! 😉


I get the feeling she KNOWS how cute she is!



Once we’ve got a few cute first birthday portraits then the REAL fun begins… CAKE SMASH! Annabel’s mom bought the cutest little leg warmer and diaper cover set – so glad I didn’t have to get the icing color out of that beautiful set!

Oh my goodness, don’t you just love when babies get so into smashing the cake that they even get their feet into it?! I’m pretty sure that Annabel had more cake on her feet than in her mouth!

Though, Annabel quickly realized that she did NOT like the feeling of icing between her toes!

Thank you so much for inviting me to capture Annabel’s first birthday portraits and cake smash! I had so much fun with her (as always)!
