Brynnley’s Pearls, Pink, and Polka Dot Smash Cake Session

Brynnley’s mom wanted both outdoor fall family pictures and a smash cake session for Brynnley so we ended up meeting up twice within 10 days. Even though they had to drive up to Sun Prairie from Edgerton each time, it was worth it. Both sessions went perfectly and it didn’t push this 1 year old too far for either session. I think if we tried to do both in one day that it would have been too much for her and the smash cake wouldn’t have gone nearly as perfect as it did.

I loved her pearls and polka dots. She matched her cake perfectly and was a pro with it. I always start the smash cake session with parents on the side and tell them that they are on deck for when the baby pushes the cake away but Brynnley did the exact opposite and pulled it towards herself. She was a pro! She loved her cake but loved the “splash” part of the session even more when she got a bubble bath to clean up at the end.

Willa is One! Fall Themed Smash Cake Session

We started Willa’s 1 year old milestone session with some pictures with big sister and mom. Then we got to the good part….the fall themed smash cake! At first she wasn’t sure what to do with the cake and wasn’t too interested but once she got a taste, she dove in and ate it up! I loved that mom brought in a plain white cake and we decorated it with real flowers. The pop of fall colors was beautiful and it wasn’t until the very end that Willa realized they could come off the cake and started to share them with me and her mama.


Ryleigh’s 1 Year Old Studio Milestone with Smash Cake

Ryleigh turned 1 year old last month and joined me in the studio for a little belated celebration. You wouldn’t guess it from the pictures, but she actually wasn’t really into her smash cake at all but it was so cute with her pink tutu and the pink cake with balloons in the background. She did enjoy a little splash in the bubble bath at the end to get cleaned up.

Happy birthday Ryleigh!

Finley is One Year Old | Studio Celebration with Smash Cake

Miss Finley is one year old. Hard to believe. I still use one of her newborn photos in many of my promotion pieces. (baby hammock pose and more of my favorites from her newborn session here)

Here hair has lightened but still as thick as can be. She was a joy to have in the studio for her one year session. We did have to get creative to get her away from daddy but she eventually warmed up to the idea and then dug right into her smash cake.

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!

Sammy is ONE! | Outside first birthday milestone session with baseball smash cake

It’s been great to watch Sammy grow over the last year. It feels like just yesterday he was in the studio doing his newborn pictures with his stuffed Bucky Badger. He now graduated from my belly to baby group of RMP VIPs. We celebrated his first birthday at the park during golden hour for a family session plus a baseball theme smash cake that his mom made!

 

Delaney is ONE! | 1 Year Milestone with Smash Cake and Tub Splash

It’s hard to believe Delaney is 1 year old. It feels like her newborn session just happened yesterday. She joined me in the studio with mom and dad. After a few family portraits, we had a WILD ONE themed smash cake. She loved every part of the cake and even stayed for a little splash in the studio tub.

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.

    

Bennett is One | Milestone 1 year session with smash cake | Rainbow Theme

After a year of waiting, I finally got to meet Bennett. He’s adorable and big sister Alex is great with him. I’m so glad they were able to swing down to Sun Prairie while vacationing in Wisconsin Dells to do his 1 year pictures with smash. We even ended with a fun splash session. I love the rainbow cake mom made and brought. I’m glad it made it all the way from Green Bay in one piece!
