To Cake Smash or Not?!

For those of you that don’t know me, let me introduce myself.  I’m Rhonda, a Lexington, KY photographer who specializes in newborn, child, and family portraiture.  I love it when my newborn clients return to the studio for their one year portraits.  Most often, they want a cake smash.  This family, however, opted for something a bit different and I’m in love!

One year portraits – to cake smash or not?!

When it came time for Sofia’s one year portraits, her parents were unsure of what they really wanted.  I always start One Year Sessions with a portrait.  Usually for girls, I put them in one of my beautiful Dollcake dresses.  We snap a few pictures, and then change into something a bit more comfortable.  We use a different setting and then we let them smash the cake.  Sofia’s parents weren’t sure they really wanted to do the whole cake thing.  And I totally get it!  My own daughter wouldn’t even touch the cake and we tried THREE times!  When they asked if they could do a quick family session instead I was totally game!

Outdoor family sessions – my fave!

I live for indoor studio shots of the little ones.  There is nothing I think is more beautiful that backlit portraits or a simple, white, organic setting.  However, when it comes to family portraits I like to head outside.  While we do have 20 acres on site to do outdoor portraits, we headed to Waveland Museum to capture their family session as it has a special meaning to them.  I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome.  Despite the sun not setting until nearly 10 at night, Sofia was an angel for the sunset session!
