This milestone portrait session is the most fun: you get to see your baby destroy a birthday cake. Not a fan of cake? We can do sessions with other foods or paint!
The best time to capture this session is when your baby is 11-months-old, so you’ll have this fun birthday artwork returned in time for their birthday.
I’ll order a cake from my favorite bakery and I’ll have the props ready.
We’ll get to do two to three wardrobe/set changes. More formal portraits first with a cute or fancy outfit, then we’ll change and bring out the cake! Some babies dive in face first while some only swipe at the frosting. It’s impossible to know how each child will react, but there’s always laughter. If you’re concerned your little one won’t be interested in the cake, I have a few tricks to gently persuade them, don’t worry.
The best part is: I get all the cleanup! All you have to do is wipe down your little one. I know, the last thing you need is to clean up another messy meal from the floor! I’ve got this one :)
If your little one likes water and having a bath we can also do a bubble bath session in my tiny clawfoot tub.
Your session includes a fully-stocked changing table, a baby bathrobe to keep baby warm, and a large sink with organic baby soap, towels, and lotion. There’s also a baby scale if you’d like to do a weigh-in.
I can’t wait to meet you and help celebrate your little one’s 1st birthday!
