Happy Birthday Klara | New Market Md Cake Smash Photographer

Klara’s cake smash session | New Market MD children’s photographer

Happy Birthday, Klara. You may remember Klara from her newborn and six-month milestone session (here and here). It is so great to be able to see your children grow up over that first year; they are doing so many new things.

My favorite part of Klara’s session was getting to capture their family, they had so much together, and Klara was full of personality. Klara’s parent’s brought in her outfits. They love her in bright colors.

It was so neat that they brought this pillow in for each session. We got to see how much Klara grew by including it in the growth images.

Happy Birthday Colette | New Market Md Cake Smash Photographer

Colette’s cake smash session | New Market MD Children’s Photographer

Meet Colette. She was so happy at her first birthday session. We started the session off with a picture-perfect outfit seen below — all smiles from this happy girl.

Colette used the JNP studio closet for her wardrobe, and we have the perfect outfits. I love that we get to provide outfits for our clients that we know will photograph well. I had the perfect pink to match her requested pink and gold theme.

Colette loved the cake smash part of her session. I always like to give parents a heads up that not all babies want to get messy, and that's ok! We get cute cake images anyway.

Mia is ONE | New Market Md Cake Smash Photographer

Mia’s cake smash session | New Market MD children’s photographer

Meet Mia. Mia and her parents came to me for her first birthday session. Mia had just turned one two days before her session and she was ready to party. We started the session outside with mom and dad, and it was HOT. Mia loved to explore the outdoors, and it made for the best pictures.

Once we finished the family part of the session, we moved indoors at the studio. Mia loved her pink and gold cake smash theme, and she made the best faces during her session. It is safe to say she likes cake and making a mess.

Duncan turns ONE | Frederick Md Cake Smash Photographer

Duncan’s 1 Year Photo Shoot | MD Baby Photographer

Duncan was back (see his newborn session HERE) and we had a blast.

What always cracks me up is that baby’s can go from super happy and smiling to a look of “what the heck” in a split second. Below is a perfect example. Cracks me up every time.

Last up we did his cake smash and it was fair to say he LOVED it. He was very serious about his cake consumption and didn’t want to be distracted from it. So funny!

Happy birthday Duncan!

Colette | Gaithersburg MD Child Photographer

Gaithersburg Cake Smash Photographer | One Year Old

Colette had a rough start to life. She weighed 1lb, 11oz and had over a 100 day stay in the NICU. She came to get her newborn images when she was 3 months old (see HERE) and was just perfect. She was back at 6 months (seen HERE). This time we tried to sneak out for some outdoor images, but the weather had other plans. We snuck in a few before the sky opened up on us.

Colette looked gorgeous in pink!

She was super happy sitting in her big girl chair and gave me lots of expressions!

Speaking of expressions, her cake smash ones topped them all! She wasn’t loving the cake but she sat and played with it long enough for us to capture some of her cuteness.

Happy Birthday Colette! You truly are a special girl and I am so lucky to have documented your first year.
