Meet the B. Family…
It’s been a little over a year since I photographed their family back when they were anxiously awaiting baby B.’s arrival to their family. And now, she’s One! With a perfect +24 September day, we thought we’d take advantage of the beautiful weather and capture her cake smashing outside. Perfect.
We started with family photos first…
Onto the cake smashing! Mom made her sweet birthday girl an amazing big cupcake, nice work!
Her brother and sister were itching to get in there and help a sista’ out…
Thank you for the fun night! I loved spending time with your family.
From my heart to yours,
Hailey is One! To celebrate her first birthday, she smashed a cake (with a little help from her big sis)!
She has such a sweet and gentle personality. Isn’t she a doll?
Hailey is one lucky little girl to have such an amazing Mom. I love that she asked if they could have a birthday picture together.
Her big sister is her little caretaker, they are so close.
Onto the cake smashing…
The beautiful cake was made by Annie Cakes in Leduc.
As Hailey enjoyed her cake, her big sister waited for the word that she could join in the fun, it wasn’t that long ago that she was here to smash her own 1st birthday cake! Every 30 seconds or so she would ask “My turn? Please, is it my turn?” She was so patient and well-mannered and let out a squeal of excitement when she was asked if she wanted some cake too.
Oh my, these sweet sisters are too cute for words…
Happy Birthday Hailey! Thank you for the fun morning, you are such a joy.
Meet the L family.
They are very dear friends to our family. I’ve had the pleasure of capturing their maternity session, and baby Shy’s newborn session. Yesterday on Shy’s first birthday, after a quick series of family photos, they celebrated one amazing year of oh-so-loved Shy with a cake smashing session. How did a year go by so fast?!
Onto the cake smashing!
We started out with one of Shy’s newest loves…the sucker.
Time to bring her beautiful cake out, made by Once Upon a Cake in Leduc. It was so much fun watching her enjoy her cake.
Happy first birthday sweet Little girl!
Lots of love,
I haven’t seen Jayden since I took his newborn pictures.
At just 10 days old, he was already full of personality and now that he has turned one (just yesterday), his personality has grown right along with him.
Onto the cake smashing! The fabulous cake was supplied by Fuss Cupcakes. So delicious!
And this is the moment Jayden decided he didn’t like the feeling of icing on his skin…
At some point in every cake smashing session, there is a break down when enough is enough…
It’s his birthday, he can cry if he wants too…
Happy Birthday Jayden!
Thank you for coming over and smashing a cake! It was so good to see you all again.
Isn’t she adorable? Although it’s not quite her birthday yet, she came over to celebrate her first birthday a little early by smashing a cake.
Penny Zulke made a fabulous two tiered cake for the occasion. What an amazing cake in honour of the soon-to-be birthday girl. Thank you Penny!
As soon as Mom put Cassey down, she went straight for it.
Her Mom (who also comes from the same hometown as me…Vermilion) told me that Cassey loves pushing buttons. Since the cake was polka dotted, she focused most of her energy on pressing each little dot.
I’m not sure what she was thinking here…maybe “Do you expect me to eat this whole cake by myself?!” She did more playing with the cake than actually eating it!
Grandma was also there to lend a helping hand…
Sometimes cake smashings end in tears when the birthday girl has had enough. This particular cake smashing ended with flying cake. 🙂 Thanks for coming to play Cassey! Happy early birthday sweet girl!
He’s one! Along with his sister, he came over to smash a cake to celebrate his first birthday. His birthday was actually the beginning of September, but he came into the world 5 weeks early. The day we did this cake smashing, was a year to the day of what should have been his scheduled C-Section. 🙂
Meet his big sister Emma.
She is a real care-taker to Cameron. Her eyes light up when she interacts with him and she’s so gentle and loving. It’s amazing to see such a close connection between siblings that are a few years apart.
Onto the cake smashing! Cameron’s Mom made the cake, and she did a wonderful job. Such a great keepsake for Cameron to be captured through photos. Nice work Mom!
Cameron was impressed as well!
It took him awhile to figure out that he was allowed to touch the cake! He took his time before digging in, he circled the cake a few times.
I love that you can see their personalities come out in how they choose to smash the cake. Cameron was quite deliberate and enjoyed every bite with cute expressions in between.
Happy birthday Cameron! Thanks for the fun morning!
We met for an outdoor cake smashing!
Big sister Addison was the most excited!
Thank you Penny Zulke for making the fabulous cake! Sawyer’s eyes lit right up when he saw it.
Sawyer took his time eating the cake while Addison waited patiently off to the side. Once Sawyer got a little overwhelmed, Addy was right there to help a brotha out!
Happy Birthday Sawyer! You are one adored little man. I have loved photographing your changing personality over the past year. Looking forward to more!
Meet Caris. She has amazing cheeks! Isn’t she adorable?
She’s turning 1 in a few days! To celebrate the event, she came over for a cake smashing!
Her mom made the cake and what a beautiful cake it was! I am so impressed with your cake making skills Carmen. Can you believe this is the very first fondant cake she’s ever made? Amazing! 🙂 Even though the cake gets smashed, it’s such a treasured keepsake for Caris…captured in photos. Nice work! I have to tell you Carmen, motherhood looks stunning on you.
Caris is just learning to walk. She’s almost there.
Onto the cake smashing! The best thing about cake smashings is that you really get to see their personality come out in how they smash the cake. Caris took her time before she sampled the cake. It was like she understood how much time and work her Mom poured into that beautiful cake.
Don’t you just love her Sumo Wrestler pose?
Happy Birthday sweet Caris! Thanks for the entertainment!
She just turned one! She’s grown so much since I took newborn pictures of her!
Meet her sisters…Madison
She climbed a tree on our last family session too 🙂
We first met for family photos before the big cake smashing in honour of Brynn’s first birthday.
They are such a beautiful family full of love and laughter.
Madison’s a little artist as well!
Jackie, who I am also blessed to count as a friend of mine, makes the job of Mom to three girls look effortless. Madison and Rylee wanted to take a few pictures with my camera, so here’s a little behind the scene’s look! 🙂 They are already little photographers!
Now onto the cake smashing! Jackie made the cake. What a special memory to give to her girls! Is there anything this Mom can’t do?!
Brynn’s patient sisters were waiting in the wings for a chance to join in!
And to end it all…the token “I’ve had too much, I’m overwhelmed, come save me” cake smashing shot…
Happy birthday Brynn!Thanks for the fun!
I have taken pictures of Sierra a few times since she came into the world. She turned one a couple of days ago! Where did the time go?
To celebrate her birthday, she came over to smash a cake. 🙂 Thank you to Penny Zulke for once again creating a beautiful cake.
Sierra loved it! She was very focussed on eating all the pretty flowers.
At some point in every cake smashing, the birthday babe gets a little overwhelmed…
But, the look she gave her Mom when she had enough was priceless! Baby stink eye…
Happy birthday sweet baby girl! Thanks for spending the morning with me.
