Sweet Willow is ONE!!! While I cannot wrap my head around her being so big, I was BEYOND excited when Willow’s mommy contacted me to set up her 1st birthday cake smash session! I was even more excited to hear that she was planning a “Butterfly Garden” theme! I live for the springtime and fresh flowers and who doesn’t like butterflies?
My goal for her session was to keep things simple, yet beautiful. I chose a soft yellow frosting for her cake and decorated it with a few butterflies from the kit I purchased to create the butterfly rainbow on the cream wood backdrop. I also mirrored the same rainbow effect on her cake to tie the two together. Doesn’t it just make you happy?!?
I absolutely love planning 1st birthday sessions. I had a conversation recently with a mommy inquiring about her baby’s 1st birthday session…we got to talking about pricing and how she has used other cheaper or less experienced photographers for her child’s milestone session, but she really wanted GOOD pictures for the 1 year. I understand that 100%. Save your hard earned money on the milestones like 3, 6 & 9 months. But don’t cut corners on the big milestones like 1 year. Your baby’s first birthday is a milestone that is worth the investment, even if you have to make payments. Your baby only has one first birthday.
Send me a message to plan your little ones smash session. You won’t regret it! Anyway, I have gotten WAY off topic, sorry Willow <3
Here is a peek at Miss Willow’s newborn session. She made me work, HARD at her newborn “sessions”. You see Miss Willow didn’t get the memo that she only had one visit to the studio, she wanted 3…but I love her anyway. <3
