First Birthday/Cake Smash

Mom baked the cake during session

This is why I love on location service. Mom decided to have a cake smash theme the last minute and baked the cake during the session...

Amandine turned 1! She holds the record of completing the most packages I offer in my Baby’s First Year Plan.  Amandine had never had a real cake prior to the session so her Mommy wasn’t sure whether she wants a cake smash pacakge. So instead, she booked Amandine a traditional portrait session and just wanted to go with the flow and see.

Mom loves the on-location idea. We discussed color themes during pre-session consultation and as usual, I like to surprise her with a few additional ideas. We did the session on a cozy summer day and just took our time. If Amandine needs a nap, go for it. If she needs a break or snack, just do it. There was no rush and Mommy just went into the closet to find new outfits and accessories as we go. I captured lots of candid pictures of Amandine hanging around in the kitchen with Mommy as well as playing with her big sister’s easel set (shhh…).

At 12 months Amandine can crawl very well and stand with little support. She has very rich expressions. If you visit her sitter and newborn session blog (links will be given at the end of this blog), you know this is not news. However, she did have some new expressions to share such as the adorable baby duck face.

I surprised Mom with a wall showing my favorite pictures of Amandine from the newborn and sitter session.

Okay, I don’t want to take it personal. I believe Amandine loOooves my wall of pictures idea. 😉

Another surprise is a sparkly mirror theme. Amandine really had fun playing with her own reflections.

The “mirror” is made of a plastic, shatterproof material called “Plexiglass”. Please do not try this with real mirror at home. It is not safe that way.

Again this is why I love on location service. Admandine was in the mood for more pictures so at the last minute her Mommy decided to add the cake smash theme in. She used a boxed cake and substituted items to make it allergy free. The frosting color was made with real strawberries. The whole cake was made in about 20 minutes and she put it in the freezer for about another 10 minutes to let it chill.
