First birthdays don’t always have to be celebrated with a cake smash session. Oliver’s mom really wanted to commemorate his very first birthday, but wasn’t interested in doing a cake smash session. Mom contacted me and asked if I would be willing to do a first year pictures or if I only did cake smashes. I feel like I need to make sure people know that you can absolutely do a one year session. Cake for your baby’s birthdays are never required for their pictures.
Boise Idaho First Year Pictures
When I had first started my photography business cake smash sessions were not a thing. People typically came to see me for newborn, sitter, and then first birthday sessions. Cake smash sessions came along several years down to road. Cakes smashes started out simple, and now they have evolved into giant themed sets. Photography has changed so much in the 12 years that I have been in it. If I am being honest, the simple cake smash sessions and the sessions with no cakes have my heart.
Onto Oliver and his adorable expressions! First year sessions are so much fun and can be challenging. Typically by this age they have the best personalities, but they can also run or crawl away from us. The darling little crate Oliver is sitting on in the first picture got broken in our move and I am so bummed.
