A big part of my sessions last year were cake smash sessions or 1st birthday sessions. I absolutely adore this type of shoot, because no matter how long you’ve been doing this, this is the one type of session you seriously have no control over whatsoever, and it’s 100% baby-in-control-mode for me as a photographer. I thought I’d share some of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots from last year and funny enough – most of them are cake smash behind-the-scenes shots. Oh the fun we had. :) To schedule YOUR baby’s 1st birthday or cake smash session, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and come visit us on facebook at www.facebook.com/angierayphotography to see my latest session sneak peeks! xo
Mason, another one of my milestone babies, has grown into such a personality – he’s so incredibly sweet and content and at the same time already has a real sense of humor. And a trooper he is, too! It was incredibly hot despite shooting quite early in the morning, but he had a blast. I loved that his parents took the opportunity and had me do a couple of shots of just the two of them as well – aren’t they gorgeous?
Aayla… love her name, love her family, love everything about this little girl. This was her third session with me and I cannot wait for the next one. She has such a super cute personality; so laid-back and sweet, and her gorgeous eyes and perfect skin give me baby fever every time I see her. We had a fun time at Marietta’s Life College and I’m in love with every single shot from this session. See you again soon, Miss A.!
I am absolutely in love with every single shot from this outdoor session. Dylan is such a sweet little guy, so easy-going and content, and he has been that way for every single one of his milestone sessions (this is the 4th time he’s visited me). I love the simplicity of the field, the fact that we got to incorporate “his” basket again and of course the outfit his mom picked for him. That being said, I absolutely ADORE Dylan’s mom – so gorgeous and so stylish and such a beautiful person inside and out.
Ethan and Elijah are 3 months old already! These two boys have a very special place in my heart and I cannot tell you how excited I am about having the opportunity to follow them along on their first-year-journey. They have changed so much already since their newborn session, which was a first for me and so very special. Gorgeous boys, gorgeous family – I love my job!
Lizzy’s mom approached me regarding a tutu session which we scheduled as a studio shoot. Typically I don’t work with my black backdrop very often, but I had a ton of fun bringing it out for this. Lizzy has an amazingly cute personality and I hope to see her (along with her older sister) again for a future session!
