You may recognize this cutie from the Malecky’s family session at Maymont a while back. I love when clients reach out to me again to capture other milestones in their lives. It helps me better form a connection with my clients and I love watching the little ones grow up. I was so excited when Kendall reached out to me to photograph Owen turning ONE! I had never captured a Smash Cake session before! It has been on the bucket list for quite some time so I can now check that off the list. When I arrived, Owen had on his birthday attire! His birthday party was Dr. Seuss themed (SO cute!). Kendall made the cake herself!! So very creative!! The colors matched his outfit and they have a big red front door that we used as a backdrop (it was too cold to go outside!). Owen was full of smiles!! I snapped a few fun candids of him in the living room then Owen was ready for his birthday cake. Since this was my first Smash Cake session I wasn’t too sure what to expect. Owen didn’t hesitate — he grabbed a handful of icing and with a huge smile he jumped right in! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate your 1st birthday than smashing a big cake! Happy birthday Owen!
Look at those eyelashes!! OH my goodness!!
He was a happy, sticky, yummy mess!
