Happy Birthday! – Warren County NJ Cake Smash Photographer

It’s hard to believe that this little lady is already a year old!  One of the greatest honors as a photographer is when a client returns.   I just love watching my newborns grow and change and explore this big new world.   And what better exploration than CAKE?!

We started off this session with a few traditional one year portraits.  Then we moved right into the good stuff.   But the funny thing about babies is that they don’t know how amazing this yummy treat is, so it takes them awhile to warm up to it.   A virtue that I could stand to learn.  A full cake in front of ME?  Gone before you can say “big slice or little slice?”

After she coated herself in frosting sufficiently,  she relaxed in a nice warm bubble bath.  And then decided she was ready for some more cake.   So, we did what any normal person would do…and served her cake while she splashed.   This girl has my heart.

6 Months of Adorable- Vernon, NJ Baby Photographer

Remember that precious little songbird newborn from the other day?   Well, 6 months ago (if you’re doing your math, this means that she is now almost a YEAR old!) we got together for a fun little half birthday shoot.   It was so amazing to see just how much she had grown in half a year.  She was full of those fanTASTIC gummy smiles and laughs.

And, we were able to sneak in a shot of her and big brother, which we missed out on at her Newborn session.    One of the greatest things about this age is their obsession with their feet.   But, who could blame them, afterall?  Baby feet are THE best. Ever. Period. Infinity.

In the Jungle- Phillipsburg, NJ Baby Photographer

Oh how I love a good cake smash session!!!  This little guy is a regular here at ABP now.  I’ve been taking pictures of him since he was in his mama’s belly!   For his first birthday, we got together for a fun jungle themed cake smash session.

He had too much fun eating the the cake and smearing icing on himself.   But, when it came time for cleanup, he wasn’t nearly as thrilled.   Thankfully, he settled in for a quick scrub-a-dub and enjoyed the spa.

Spitfire- Phillipsburg, NJ Baby Photographer

You would never believe that this adorable chunk came into this world barely weighing 6lbs.  When I first met Baby O, he was so tiny and appeared so fragile.  But, he’s as hardy as they come these days and such a heartbreaker.  I am in love with that amazing red hair and ocean blue eyes.  I could eat him up.

In honor of his first birthday, we let HIM eat it up.  Cake, that is!   But not before we got some shots of him rocking the cutest little bow tie.   And, of course, it wouldn’t be a cake smash without a little splash time afterwards!

Let them smash cake! – Phillipsburg, NJ Baby Photographer

Or maybe it should be “PLEASE SMASH THE CAKE!!!”  It’s funny how many kids can sit down to an entire frosted cake that is just for them and NOT tear into it.  Their willpower far exceeds my own, I’ll tell you that much.   This beauty turned a year old back in November which is so hard to believe considering THIS seems like just yesterday!  Time just goes so quickly once these long awaited blessings arrive.  They aren’t joking when they say, “the days are long, but the years are short.”

She’s much like her parents…serious and focused with a goofy side.  And can we talk about those curls for a minute?  *swoon*  I can’t get over just how much she looks like her beautiful mother.  (Ok…her dad’s beautiful,too. :P)   And, the other thing she seems to have gotten from her mama was an indifference to cake.  She seemed to much prefer keeping it dignified with a couple of dainty polite tastes.  But in the end, she got a little smash and a little mess and was ready to get cleaned up.
