First birthday sessions are honestly one of my favorite things to photograph. I love cake and I love babies so it’s really like heaven for me! And not to mention, I adore all of the beautiful setups for these types of sessions. It really speaks to my soul to be able to coordinate a gorgeous backdrop with a delicious cake. But when my sweet friend, Katie, from Pure Whimsy Events, asked me to photograph Hugo’s 1st birthday cake smash, I knew she was going to dream up something GORGEOUS! The balloon arch was to die for as well as these perfect green hues. And my favorite part of the session, those delicious cookies that her mom made for the second part of the session. Absolutely amazing! Hugo agreed! Ha!
