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 email@example.com 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?
Little man Brandon, isn’t he handsome? Quite a lot of planning went into this newborn session – mom Alyssa (who’s been a dear and regular client of mine for quite some time now; Brandon being her and her husband Matt’s second child) had such cute ideas and to make sure we’d achieve even the slightly more elaborate poses, I brought along a dear friend and client of mine, Miss Jaimie, who did a wonderful job spotting, supporting and comforting B. and was all in all just great to have along for the session. Wish she could come along on all of my sessions! Love you Brandon, can’t wait to see you again soon!
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!
Benjamin… what a content and happy little man he was for me. A rockstar sleeper, he even flashed me one of the most adorable smiles I’ve ever captured on a newborn. He is the essence of why I’m addicted to newborn photography; it’s so rewarding to know I get to be part of this very special time for a brand-new family.
I loved everything about this shoot. Baby Gray was nice and sleepy, and his parents had followed all of my tips and requests. Because of this we were very efficient and able to capture even the more challenging shots like Gray sleeping on the football held by daddy, something I had never done before.
During the session I got to meet Gray’s grandpa, who is a photo enthusiast as well and we chatted away about exposure times, lenses and all kinds of other photo geeky things, which made me a happy camper!
Handsome Mister Will, what a perfect little baby to photograph he was.. so sleepy and content, and even when he did wake up, he was all smiles and so serene – a photographer’s dream. I especially love that I got to use some of the family’s furniture and even Will’s four-legged big brother jumped into some of the shots! It doesn’t get much better than that.
