Happy 1st Birthday, Emilia!
I can’t believe you’re one!
It feels like just yesterday that I was photographing your amazing parents when your Mama was pregnant with you. And then a few short weeks later, I got to meet and photograph you as a sweet little newborn baby (you were the cutest little thing)! I also got to photograph you and your mama a few months back for a Mommy & Me session (coming to the blog soon). It has been a pleasure watching you grow.
You are the happiest one-year-old, ever. Your cake smash session was all smiles. You may not have destroyed the cake like we had all hoped, but you still managed to get icing on everything. You are the cutest. I cannot wait to continue to document you growing up!
Miss Emilia, I hope you have the best first birthday ever!!
I’d like to quickly pause this blog post to share something special… enjoy!
How to Properly Smash a Cake (By Emilia):
Step 1: The Wind Up. This step is crucial. Make sure you bring your hand up as high as you can to ensure step 2 is a success.
Step 2: The Cake Slap. It is important to slap the cake as hard as you can to ensure some icing goes flying.
Step 3: The Body-Weight Push. Here is where things get really messy – using your body-weight, push your hand into the cake.
Step 4: The Applause. Pull your hand out and look around (with this grin) to ensure your audience applauds and cheers for you.
Step 5: Put on a Show. If the cheering/applause goes well in step 4, milk it. Be your cutest self & get more cheers!
Special thanks to Emilia for showing us how a Cake Smash should be done! Back to sharing more images from her session!
How cute is she?! (Insert heart-eyed emoji’s here).
Yes, she fell / sat on her cake. What a silly girl!
The cake smelled SO good that we were all getting really hungry. So, Mom and Dad decided to have some cake!
Alright, time to get cleaned up!
Tigger. Is. Life.
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
