Ethan is one year old | First birthday milestone session

It feels like just yesterday that Amy and Mark brought Ethan into the studio for his newborn session. We just celebrated his first birthday milestone session in the studio with a cake. He was all smiles until we brought out that cake. He was less than impressed with the cake but we still managed to get some super cute pictures of him.

Happy RMP Baby Program Graduation! It’s been wonderful to go along with you over the last year including maternity, newborn, 4 months, 8 months and now the first birthday milestone.

Uthara is one year old | Milestone session in studio with smash cake

It was fun to celebrate Uthara’s 1st birthday as a milestone session in the studio. At first she wasn’t sure what to think about the studio but she warmed up just enough for me to see her beautiful smile. Her favorite thing to do is have mom or dad bounce her…and snuggle…lots and lots of snuggles. So sweet!

Finley is 1 Year Old | Celebrate with Cake in Studio with Balloons

It feels like just yesterday that I met Finley at her newborn session and now she’s turning 1!? Time is flying by. She joined me in the studio for a celebration with cake. She loved her smash cake and may have loved the splash in the bubble bath at the end a little more.

Bria is 1 year old | Older sister is turning 6! | Family Portraits in Studio

Last time I saw Nick and Jen, they were still a family of three at their maternity session. I was excited to finally meet Bria for her one year pictures in my Sun Prairie studio. Jen told me the first birthday theme was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and once I saw a picture of her birthday outfit, I knew exactly how I wanted to set up her milestone session. Stars and Balloons!

And of course we couldn’t leave out big sister who’s turning 6 year old!

Bronsyn is One | Balloons and Smash Cake in Studio | Splash Session

At every one year old’s milestone session, I ways say it, but I really mean it…it feels like yesterday that Bronsyn was in my studio for his newborn session. His fire fighter setup was one of my favorites. And now his one year smash and splash session is one of my favorites too. This kid radiates happiness. It’s impossible to not smile when you look at him. He enjoyed every second of his session from the balloons to the cake to the bath. One of my favorites is his dad’s cameo during the smash cake. Of course Bronsyn had to share his cake with his dad.

  

Theodore is ONE | Smash Cake & Splash in Bubble Bath Studio Session

Theodore is turning one and had his milestone session with cake and a bubble bath. I love the way his whipped cream frosting cake made a complete mess. He loved ever part of it. He had a hard time deciding if he wanted to eat cake or play with balloons so at points he was doing both. His quick bath at the end was the perfect way to clean him up and get some super cute pictures at the same time.

    

Vivian is One Year Old | Studio Smash Cake | Purple & Butterflies

Smash cake sessions are always fun and challenging at the same time. Many times the one year old child isn’t fond of the cake but it’s so fun to watch them experience it, many times for the first time in their life. Vivian is turning 1 in a couple weeks and mom brought in a beautiful homemade cake. It had butterflies to match the ones she brought in for the purple background. Everything came together perfectly and turned out super cute.
