1st Birthday Cake Smash

I’m so excited to share this 1st birthday cake smash at Rachel Kathleen’s Luxury Studio session with you today! When the Angell Family reached out about Adley’s 1st birthday cake smash photos, I just couldn’t wait to capture these pictures! There is something about capturing the first year of life because they grow so fast and it is something to celebrate!

1st Birthday Cake Smash | Maple Grove, MN

The Angell Family was in communication with me before this session to plan and have all props ready to go. They decided to buy balloons, a one sign, and donuts for Adley to enjoy. Adley was incredible and had the best smiles ever for her photoshoot and she loved all the donuts. I had the biggest smile on my face capturing these sweet images. Adley was crawling and dancing to baby shark.

I love being able to be a par of so many milestones in the first year of life. I offer a collection for families to mix and match throughout the year because I believe it all should be captured.

To the Angell Family, thank you so much for allowing me to capture these precious memories for you! Your family is so sweet and it was great getting to know you guy better. I can’t wait to see you all continue to grow together!

Enjoy this little peek into the sweet session!

Here is another family session!
