Emiko's First Birthday Cake Smash

After mainly boys for cake smashes this year, Miss Emiko came by yesterday for her first birthday photos and a cake smash themed with girly tutu's and lots of purple. Mom and Dad brought different goodies and decorations for her photos and Emiko loved the crinkly paper balls and lavender balloons. And I must say I loved the different tutus with sparkles - there's something about a baby in a tutu that just makes you smile.

We started with some nice photos of her with the grey wooden backdrop and she was so sweet to sit as I gave her the different letters spelling "one". Then before she could decide to explore the studio, I put her in a big round basket and let her play with the party decorations again. She even gave a few big smiles for Dad, who I believe was jumping up and down behind me!

Emiko also loved the white chair and, of course, wanted to stand in it and explore. Dad did a great job making sure no baby was harmed in the taking of these photos, and Emiko had fun sitting like a big kid and then holding a purple balloon for a few photos pre-messy cake.

I then had fun using all the great purple party decorations to set up for her cake smash. They had the cutest wiener dog weights to hold down the helium balloon, and I'm frankly surprised Emiko didn't want to play with them once she was let loose! Emi didn't quite know what to think of her cake or how it tasted, but she was just adorable with her massive purple tutu and truly gave it a try. She even let me get her feet in the cake. I think the part she enjoyed most about the smash, though, was when she shoved the cake off the stand at the end and then proceeded to try and put icing inside the bottom of the cake stand. I truly love watching how every baby handles their cake smash sessions - they are all so unique and it's a joy to see how each one reacts to their first birthday treat.

A big happy birthday to Emiko who turns one later this month! And thanks to her parents for such a fun afternoon and for allowing me to be part of these special memories.
