Liam Turns One! | Smash & Splash First Birthday Cake Session | Aurora CO Kids Photography

April 26, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I love first birthday cake smashes, especially for those little ones I photographed as newborns! It's so exciting to see how much they have changed over a year and it's fun to see how they interact with the cake and the bath. I had the pleasure of photographing this cutie, Liam, when he was a newborn (and took Mom's maternity photos)! He was adorable then and now... all decked out for his construction themed smash and splash session in the studio! I had fun stylizing this session with construction tape and cones, construction themed rubber duckies, and a laundry line full of coordinating clothes including socks with a construction truck print!

Little Liam's first interaction with the cake seemed to go well.

But soon it was clear that he was not exactly wild about cake... as you can see from the extent of the cake damage (or rather lack thereof) below.

It happens! Some kids love digging into their cake and others don't really care for it. But splash sessions are a different story! I will admit, we were a bit worried at the start of his bath, as Liam seemed to dislike it as much as the cake. But after a few minutes he warmed up to it and had a blast.

While drying off we had a little more fun playing with rubber duckies. Liam couldn't seem to find the one on his head for a while. But I sent him home with one so he could practice his ducky finding skills.

Thanks for stopping by the studio and celebrating your first birthday with me Liam!
