{First Birthday Portrait Sioux Falls} Zoey’s Cake Smash Session

I absolutely adore my First Birthday Cake Smash Sessions! They truly are the best First Birthday Portrait sessions. What could be more exciting than turning One than playing with cake?!?!

Miss Zoey is just the sweetest little lady! She warmed right up at the studio and we were even able to get through 2 adorable outfits before we started the Cake Smash Session. She had a cute little blue romper for the studio and then a beautiful dress that was stunning for a few outside images.

We were fortunate to have a lovely morning and as we took her portraits flowering petals from the trees drifted down on us like snowflakes. It was simply stunning. Zoey was laughing and having a great time outside.

We headed back into the studio to get ready for the fun part of the session! Cake Smash Time!

Before each session we coordinate with our clients to create something unique. We make sure the outfit, the background and the cake all coordinate together. Zoey had some fun Zebra accents with her lovely pink colors and I just love how Susan, our favorite Cake Artist at QT Cakes, incorporated that into the adorable cake.

Before we dive into the cake we always do a few pictures of the outfit and sometimes with some balloons. Zoey was quite suspect of those balloons and just generally not a big fan of them. It’s always so fun to see how each and every child reacts so completely differently and to capture those reactions from my point of view.

Zoey certainly had fun playing with her cake. Well, she really loved moving it around! But then, as many sweet little ladies do, she quickly changed her mind and decided she’d had just about enough! And that was that.

We created some beautiful products for Zoey’s family with these priceless images. I know they will certainly cherish these memories of their sweet, sweet lady. I know I will as well.

Thank you Zoey and family for allowing me to share in your First Birthday celebration. The wonderful compliments you have given have completely humbled me. I feel so blessed to have spent time with you and your family.
