Charlotte Children’s Photographer | First Birthday Cake Smash | Jace

Turning one-year old is a big deal for a child. He’s no longer considered a “baby.” In fact, he is moving—literally, moving (and very quickly at that!)—into the new territory of becoming a toddler.  How should you celebrate this milestone? Why, with cake, of course!


Jace came to my studio for his one-year old photo session.  I had the pleasure of photographing him at age 6 months as well, and he has grown so much!

We started the session with a few family shots. Mom, Dad, and Big Brother were very excited to celebrate this first birthday milestone!

After the family shots, I captured a few photos of Jace in his first outfit.  How handsome he was!

And the cake smash outfit!

Now...time for cake!

The cake smash studio set-up was made custom for Jace. It is always fun shopping for the perfect colors and props for the photos.

Jace had an absolutely wonderful time during his custom cake smash session! And after we were done, Big Brother had a little fun with the rest of the cake!

If you would like to schedule your own cake smash session for your little one, please contact me! I’d love to create a custom session to commemorate this milestone.
