Birthday Cake Smash Photographer – One Year Old

Birthday Cake Smash Photographer – 1 year old girl

When we say that Isabella loved her birthday cake… Well, let’s just say she loved it beyond recognition! This session could’ve gone on for a lot longer then it did. She was amazing! Some babies don’t like frosting on their little hands… not Isabella. She made it extremely easy to be a birthday cake smash photographer! She was happy until the very end!

Her mommy dressed her in the cutest outfits, too. The white dress with ballet shoes was adorable but the pink tutu with matching headband and baby sandals were by far, the best. Everything matched the Lemondrop floral backdrop perfectly!

Special thanks to our friends at French’s Cupcake Bakery for another job well done. We usually save the cake for the family to take home but there was nothing left of this one! We are pretty sure Isabella will be coming by the bakery for her 2nd birthday cake as well!
