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 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?
Oh my, the fun we had! Last weekend, I had the most incredible time photographing my very first cake smash session and can I just say that I am ever so grateful my first cake smash client, little man Colton, was about as perfect as I could have hoped for? A little on the cautious side, he nevertheless enjoyed himself thoroughly and even spared us the legendary cake smash tantrum which, so I was told, is almost inevitable and simply part of the experience.. He was such a happy little dude, I had a blast with him and his mom, Holly.
Before we dove into the sugary mess though, we were headed out to Woodstock City Park to do a couple of outdoor shots, balloons and all. We had absolutely gorgeous early morning light and Colton was being the sweetest thing ever, making lots of eye contact and generally enjoying himself. I love my job! :)
Oh and don’t let me forget to mention my wonderful friend Jennifer Bourne from Bourne to Bake who provided the cute little cake and who I will be working with for future cake smash sessions as well.
See you again soon, guys! xo
