Happy Saturday, dreamers!
I am so excited and filled with all the baby fever to bring the first cake smash to the blog! If you’ve been following us for a long time, you know that babies were something that we used to specialize in but then took a little break to focus on our older kids. But, I’ve been scheming a way to bring 6, 12, and 18-month old milestone sessions back! And here we are! We are now booking these milestone sessions for 2020 and 2021 here. If milk baths aren’t your favorite thing, we can just book a portrait session and cake smash or vice versa! But I know you’re here to see all of the cuteness that Grayson was, so without further adieu here is Grayson’s one-year milestone session!
I just have to start out by acknowledging the cutest cowlick known to earth. It made everything Grayson did so expressive and perfect. Before we covered him in sugar, we started with portraits with our gorgeous eucalyptus garland in the all-white studio.
After some portraits, it was time for cake! One of my favorite parts of a cake smash is seeing how this new little one reacts to their cake. And oftentimes, it’s the exact opposite of what the parents expect! The bakery that we get our Plano area smash cakes from, Butterfly Cakery, is one of the best recipes I’ve ever tasted, but some babies are still a little unsure of what to do with his new thing. Grayson was a little unsure, so we ended up bribing him with cheerios on his cake and it was a big hit!
We also got to break in a brand new baby overall set from the studio wardrobe and it was perfect!
I’m always a sucker for a detail shot…
In the middle of munching, Grayson gave us some of the cutest and funniest expressions!
Big-eyed and cake-faced birthday cutie!
Milk bath time! If I had a guess, I’d say this was Grayson’s favorite part! He’s a big splasher and knew exactly what to do with a tub full of milk and it made for such cute photos. Mamas, don’t ever worry about your baby splashing up a storm during their milk bath session! Yes, it’s messy, but that mess is all worth it when you see the photos that come from their fun!
Grayson was an absolute doll to photograph and I loved delivering his photos to his sweet family. If your baby is about to reach one of the 6, 12, or 18-month milestones, be sure to take a look at our Milestone session details and Q&A! We do travel for these sessions, so there’s no limit, just book early!
Sending much love from a sunny Saturday. While I adore this fall weather we’ve been getting, I’m also loving soaking up that last bit of summer sun.
