Ava’s 1st birthday cake smash photoshoot was SO MUCH FUN!! I’m absolutely itching to share some of my favorite moments with you. So without further ado, let’s dive right in!

Let’s Play!

We started off Ava’s 1st birthday photoshoot with a quick portrait sitting on the bed. But it became clear pretty quickly that Miss Ava loves to be on the move, and luckily she’s just my speed! Capturing real, organic moments and expressions as babies explore and play is my favorite thing to do during my milestone sessions. So I pulled out the bunny rocker toy from my Client Closet, and Ava was in bubbling with excitement as she played with her new bunny friend.

Ava’s Cake Smash

After letting Ava play for a little while, we broke out the cake and let Ava make a deliciously adorable mess. It’s always fun to see how different babies approach a cake smash, especially when it’s their very first taste of cake and they have no idea what to expect. Miss Ava put on quite a show us! She dove into her cake so fast that her chin and cheeks were covered in icing in no time. Ava’s mom will have quite a fun story to tell the family at her birthday party this weekend. And I’m guessing the story of Ava’s adorable 1st birthday cake smash photos will get told with fondness again and again in the years to come!

Splish Splash

After making an adorably delicious mess with her cake, we finished off our photoshoot with a quick splash in my little bath tub. Ava brought along her favorite giraffe toy, so of course she needed to join in on the bubbly fun too! Bubbles must be extra silly, because Ava couldn’t stop laughing and splashing and sticking her tongue out at mommy and Grandma in the background. And finally, mom wrapped her up in her pink towel to get her ready to head home for more birthday celebrations with the family. To say we had fun is an understatement, for sure! Ava’s adorable expressions say it all 🙂

Happy 1st birthday to adorable Ava! I can’t wait to see you again soon and watch you grow!
