A Rainbow Cake Smash for Lillian

A Rainbow Cake Smash for Lillian

Happy first birthday, beautiful baby Lillian! You are radiant in rainbow.

I’m so thankful for my Learning to Fly clients, whom I get to see grow up over the course of their first year. It’s absolutely incredible how much they grow and change over the course of just a few months! At 3 months, they’re cooing and giggling, at six they’re sometimes already sitting up, at 9 months they are usually newly mobile and I get to see what crawling style they’ve adapted, like the army crawl, or my favorite “the zombie crawl”. And then comes that one year mark, and we get to find out exactly how they feel about cake and frosting and getting themselves and everyone around them messy, or if they’re more of a bubble bath kind of baby. My job will never get old!

I love when parents get in on their baby’s newborn session, and Kasen’s mama Jennifer is just gorgeous! Brandon, Kasen’s dad, wasn’t able to get away from work to attend, but we included a special football in reference to his papa’s football coaching career.

Bernhard Turns ONE with The Beatles | Bloomington Indiana Baby Photographer

Perhaps my favorite first birthday photo theme to date! When Bernhard’s parents told me they had chosen a Beatles theme for his first birthday party, I was elated. I got to work making a “They Say It’s My Birthday” banner, pulled out an old stack of records and my daughter’s toy ukelele, and ordered a Beatles ONE album-inspired cake for him to get messy with. His mom and dad brought along their set of figurines from the Yellow Submarine film, even Chief Blue Meanie!

Mason is One! | Bloomington Indiana Child Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing Mason when he was just newly born, and I was so pleased to have him back for his one-year birthday and cake smash. My, how you’ve grown, sweet boy!
