Newborn through Cake Smash Portraits
A baby’s first-year photography plan is one of my favorite things to do as a maternity and newborn photographer. It’s so exciting to get to watch a little one grow up and hit all those milestones in their first year. Having a plan ready to go from the beginning is the best way to ensure your baby’s milestones aren’t missed.
I did pregnancy announcement photos and maternity portraits for Gwen’s parents, so when it came time to meet her I was so excited!
Little Gwen has had her own strong personality from day one, and I can’t wait to see who she grows up to become. With 3 older brothers, her fierce determination is certain to be a great trait.
I met Heather and James at a park in Ann Arbor to capture beautiful outdoor images for some of Gwen’s milestone sessions. And milestones they were! I was excited to hear Gwen began sitting independently right after her 6-month sitter session.
For her one-year photo session, we did more traditional portraits as well as a cake smash. Gwen’s mom, Heather, runs a small business in Milan, MI called Finchy Cakes. As she bakes cakes and cupcakes by trade, she made the smash cake herself. It turned out beautifully, and I truly love the simpler design she went with. We kept things simple because we wanted Gwen to be the main focus of each photo.
After Gwen’s final portrait session of the package, I created a few different collage options. These are now offered only to my Baby’s First Year clients. They’re the perfect addition to your baby’s first-year photography plan. They’re a wonderful keepsake to have to look back on your baby’s growth through their first year.
