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
I was so glad to have finally met Henry back in June. His mom and dad had initially planned for me to capture his birthday cake smash, but life got, as it so often does, in the way and we had to reschedule several times. I wonder if it was meant to be that way because can I just say how much I L.O.V.E.D. photographing him at this location and at this stage in his life (just a few months after his birthday, actually)? His mom wanted part of the session 4th of July-themed so we made it happen, and I seriously like how it all turned out.
He’s got the sweetest personality; the perfect mix of bouncy goofball and serious young man – we had a lot of fun that day, as I think you can tell from this selection of images. I get to see him again very soon, so I’m excited to see how his personality is developing! He sure is growing into a handsome little guy!
I first met Nyah when she was about 3 weeks old – I have a hard time believing time has flown by like that.. look at her! She’s grown into such a bubbly and sweet little toddler and I had the best time photographing her and her wonderful parents in honor of her big day. Nyah is One! Loved the outfits mom had picked out for her – it really accentuated Nyah’s sparkling personality and they all just looked fabulous together, wouldn’t you agree?
This was the third time I got to work with this beautiful family and I have to say, I just LOVE photographing them – those three boys are not only extremely handsome, they are also some of the best-behaved kids I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. So sweet and funny and easy to engage. A photographer’s dream!
This was a very special session as Amber is no other than the owner of Enchanted Shimmer Designs (formerly Sleepy Shimmer) and simply a wonderful person all around. She even brought me a present to our session – one of her gorgeous newborn girl accessories – I was over the moon. I had a lot of fun with this sweet family and hope to get to photograph them again this Fall. Thanks for coming all the way up to Marietta, Robinson Family!
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the Torres Family a couple of times now and can I just say that they truly are not only one of the most beautiful families I’ve ever met, but also one of the sweetest. Mom Caitlin has a little accessory business, Harper & Zoe, which you can find here – love her stuff!
This session was so amazing – we (finally) had phenomenal weather (albeit a little windy) and both Littles were having fun with everything we were trying to do with them, including a little mock tea party.
I’ve photographed the gorgeous Walker family once before and I was excited to see them all again – the boys have grown so much in just a few short months and we had a lot to chat about during our session. These boys are so handsome, I could take pictures of them all day long. Can’t wait ‘til the next time!
