| Photographer Sioux Falls SD | First Birthday Cake Smash | Cecelia

As a Photographer Sioux Falls SD, I love the variety of work that each session brings. And few sessions have more variety than our adorable First Birthday Cake Smash Sessions!

I just love celebrating each sweet new little face at such a fun stage of their life! With these sweet little ones you just never quite know how they are going to react and I love the large variety of expressions and attitudes these adorable kiddos display in their sessions!

Each First Birthday Cake Smash Session is very carefully planned before the Birthday little one arrives at the studio. We almost always use two outfits in this session: a ‘nice’ outfit and then a ‘fun’ outfit where we can play and get messy!

Cecelia’s session was just a bit extra special since her grandmother helped with some very fun planning. She designed all of the beautiful floral arrangements for this lovely session. I love when a session becomes a celebration and always encourage family members to celebrate right along with us.

The beautiful nosegay and floral garlands were just stunning along with all of the additional gorgeous flowers that came along with Cecelia. She also designed a stunning floral crown but Cecelia wanted absolutely nothing to do with that lovely creation! As I said before you just never know how they are going to react and that’s what make these so fun and special!

Our absolutely beautiful cake was designed especially for this session by Susan of QT Cakes, our neighbor in Downtown Sioux Falls. Her cakes look just as good as they taste and you can see just how much Cecelia enjoyed hers!

Happy Birthday Cecelia!! Thank you for allowing us to celebrate with you!
