Ballerina Cake Smash Session – 1st Birthday

Ballerina Cake Smash Session – 1st Birthday

This little ballerina was so much fun to have in our studio! Her ballerina cake smash session was amazing, as well as the family portrait session we got to do with her big brothers and mom and dad afterwards. It’s always a great session when the entire family gets involved! Everyone’s outfits were spectacular, especially the one year old birthday girl in her tutu and headband!
