Sweet as Honey: Eva’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash


A few weeks ago, I had a sweet family reach out to me about taking some last-minute cake smash photos for their daughter’s first birthday. While some might dislike having no time to plan, I feel like I thrive In fast-paced situations! We decided to stick to a cute bumble bee theme, which I think fit perfectly with sweet little Eva. One of my favorite aspects of this shoot was that all the props were thrifted or found from my personal collection of way too many tiny knick-knacks. 

We were also so lucky that we ended up with the most beautiful golden hour. Mom prepared Eva a sugar-free cake, which while we adults found it to be pretty tasty, she needed some convincing that this cake was her cup of tea! For the majority of the shoot, I let Eva lead and wander around our mini-set that we set up In Celebration. While It had been a while since I have worked with kids, this shoot was the perfect way to get back Into the swing of things. I could not have asked for a sweeter family!

Here are some of my favorite selections from this session:
