Cowboy Cake Smash – Orange County Family Photographer

Cowboy Cake Smash – Country Western 1st Birthday

This little guy was a blast to have in the studio! We really enjoyed this first birthday cowboy cake smash. Then for an extra treat, we did family portraits with mom, dad, and older brother! Seeing his beautiful smiles and cute cowboy outfit was a treat. The props were terrific and added so much fun flair to the shoot. All the balloons, and streamers, and the hay really helped make this a great time. We got so many great pictures out of this session. All in all this was a great cowboy cake smash!
