Well, we blinked and somehow this sweet baby girl is already one! Offering baby photography in my Houston studio has given me a chance to document so many families from those early newborn days to first birthday milestones and beyond.
While I wasn’t able to meet baby girl early on (thanks Covid!), getting to know this family over the past year has been so wonderful. I actually met Mama at a school where I do Pre-K portraits! We originally planned a bluebonnet family session last year. However, with the Covid surge right during the peak bloom, we had to postpone until late summer.
When Lillie turned one, I was thrilled Mom reached out about a cake smash session! She really wanted a session that was timeless and could be shared on any wall in their home. I’m so thankful to freeze this moment in time for Mama after such an unpredictable year!
Classic White Cake Smash Session | Houston Baby Photography
I touched on this when I shared what to expect during a cake smash, but I have had the honor of documenting so many first birthday milestone sessions recently. I love how each one is so unique! As much as I love incorporating color, there is something so classic about celebrating with a simple white cake and a sweet baby!
We used the studio as a backdrop plus a vintage white wooden highchair for this session. That allowed the focus to be fully on baby girl and her sweet smile!
Though cakes are not provided for these sessions due to potential allergies, I do recommend a cake with white frosting only. Another popular option is called a “naked” cake, like Lillie has below! Naked cakes have just enough frosting for baby to get a taste but won’t overwhelm them with a mess.
Lillie did so well during this session! I loved seeing her adorable personality shine. She was all smiles, curious to taste the frosting (love that tippy toe image!), and got just messy enough that we’d call it a win! Happy Birthday sweet girl!!
