Veronica contacted the studio to ask about availability for a First Birthday session for her son, Axel. She told us she had just moved to the Atlanta area, and fell in love with our simple approach that keeps the approach on the baby as that's exactly what she wanted. She also wanted to include big brother in a few images as well. We booked her for a session and sent over our style guide and cake tips. (Yep, we have tips for your cake that help ensure a smooth and successful cake smash!)
Some families want to document their child's First Birthday but want to skip the cake. That's totally fine! These sessions are customized to your preference. We do have to say that there are very few things cuter than a baby covered in icing though...
When the family arrived at the studio, I could not get over how cute the boys were! Axel had the most adorable little mohawk look going on, and I absolutely loved the outfits that his mom had chosen for him with the help of our style guide. She did such a great job mixing the colors and patterns for a cohesive look and needed no additional help from us. If you're still a little stuck after viewing the guide, please don't hesitate to ask for input! We are MORE than happy to schedule an appointment at the studio for you, or to exchange emails - whatever is easiest for your schedule.
We started with individual baby portraits and then some of the brothers together. The faces that Axel made are SO funny... they make me smile every time I see them! He is definitely quite the expressive little boy. I also took a couple of big brother alone too, and then we moved on to the cake. Mom changed him into a romper she purchased from Janie & Jack, and it went perfectly with his cake! After his cake was presented to him, he wasted no time at all digging right in. Every baby is different when it comes to how they approach their cake, and that's the beauty of First Birthday Sessions. Your baby's session is unique to them and who they are. The expressions and reactions are absolutely hilarious and such a fun memory to have to look back on when they're older. Parents often tell us their favorite part was being able to be fully present and watch their baby rather than worry about trying to document it.
