Lace, fresh flowers, teepee, piggie tails, oh my... the makings of a bohemian cake smash session. I met Aviana as a newborn baby. She has always been a dark haired beauty. We even dressed her in lace at the newborn session. For her cake (isn't it beautiful?)... her Daddy made it! We added the freshly cut flowers on top to complement the theme (non toxic flowers only) .
For the one year session, I always recommend to photograph the immediate family as a small part of the session. It marks an important time in baby's life and she will want to remember how her family looked when she was little. I also plan ahead of time with the parents (Mom mostly... it's a girl thing I guess) to hear about their ideas and plans for the birthday party. Parents are responsible for bringing the cake and decorations. I have a few cake stands and props to bring along, but props are mainly the job of the parents to bring. Her Mother brought along this teepee and a bouquet of flowers. I'm not a florist... but I simply tied the flowers to the teepee and think it looks pretty cute.
A question frequently asked is about clean up... after all the fun of the cake smash, cake is messy and I do stay to help clean up. I never leave a location without cleaning... that's just not cool to leave a mess. I also will not photograph something like glitter out on a location. There's no way successfully to clean confetti or glitter and I would never want to compromise the professional relationship I have with my private property locations.
Here is the boho princess as a newborn and again as a one year old.
