Wyatt's First Birthday Cake Smash Session | Children's Photography | Aurora, CO

July 09, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I recently photographed little Wyatt's first birthday cake smash session and I'm amazed that this handsome little guy is just as sweet and fun to work with as his big brother. How lucky these parents are to have two of the sweetest boys I've ever met and how lucky am I to get to continue to photograph this family and watch it grow!

For Wyatt's session Mom wanted a rustic mountain theme, which was very different from big brother Liam's construction themed cake smash session I photographed back in 2018. I tend to gravitate towards rustic elements so I was excited to get to work building a custom set that I think turned out perfectly for this family. I quickly got into the garage with my saw and cut some plywood, then painted blue and gray caps of snow as well as a matching number one. I pulled out my Christmas bins for some greenery, miniature evergreen trees, and a rustic garland, grabbed a lantern from our living room and a crate from my stash of props in the studio and put it all together with a wooden cake plate. When Mom showed up with a simple, beautiful cake and this little cutie, everything was complete!

As always I captured some simple timeless "before photos" in addition to photographing the main event and finished up with some playtime in the bath tub.
