Seems like yesterday I was photographing this sweet baby boy during his newborn session at my old Raleigh studio. Today is Jaxon’s actual 1st birthday and I was lucky enough to spend it with him during his Baby Milestone Session, which at 1 years old combines the 1 year milestones plus a cake smash at the end. SO fun!!! He was adorable during his cake smashing or should I say delicate destroying of his cake. ;) Jaxon was very careful and only took a fingerful at a time. Too cute! He still got adorably messy and he truly enjoyed it!
His cake was artfully made by one of my preferred bakers, The Batter Bowl Bakeshop, which is located conveniently around the corner from my home studio. Sarah makes the most beautiful cakes and Melissa Berg Photography cake smash clients get a discount on their order. She is so good at paying attention to details and her cakes are like perfection! Jaxon’s mommy told her she just wanted a football theme and let Sarah run with the design and this cake turned out perfectly adorable for our session.
I give each of my clients a “what to bring” guide and some of my suggestions include perusing www.etsy.com for some one year cake smash wear. This shirt is soooo cute and coincidentally matched my bright blue background that I love using for boy cake smashes. Today I received another roll of paper on my doorstep, this time a pink one for girl cake smashes! Can’t wait to use it.
Currently, Melissa is booking Baby Milestone Sessions until the end of March! If you would like to book a session, please use the link below or the contact tab in the main menu to inquire about availability for a Raleigh Cake Smash session or other aged milestone session! Hope to see you in the studio soon!
