Z's Lifestyle Cake Smash

Few things are sweeter {and messier} than those first birthday smash cakes and we LOVE them!  We get asked all the time about first birthday sessions and where to do the cake smash and how all of that works.  After all, you KNOW you don't want to clean it up!

Most of the time we do cakes smashes in studio, but I must admit, I really love taking the mess outdoors and letting the little ones loose!  There's just something about the fresh air, bright colors, and the freedom to just be.  Little Z's session was everything and more and I was thrilled to have her back behind my camera!  We love our return customers so much and getting the chance to build friendships with those we serve!

Happy Birthday Little One!

Little Miss Bella turns ONE

This little angel is the sweetest!

I had the best time planning this session with little Bella's mother and I couldn't be more pleased. They opted to do the full first year session with formal portraits and then a studio smash cake!  I love it when parents do a little bit of both during their time with me.  With sessions like these you get some keepsake "wall art" images as well as some fun memories of your little one's first taste of sugary goodness that is CAKE!

For Bella it was serious business and I'm so thrilled to have met her and her family and been a part of such an exciting time!

Clara is ONE!!

My goodness how a year flies!!  This sweet little angel turned one earlier this spring and we were so happy to be able to take her pictures!  You see, back in the day when I was just starting out (& was admittedly HORRIBLE) her mother trusted me with her older brother's newborn pictures.  I am so incredibly grateful for those at the beginning who saw past my lack of experience and believed in me anyway!

It really is people like Lyndsey who I owe so much of Kate Brent Photography to!  You guys rock!  So to be able to take her sweet daughter's first birthday pictures brings everything I've worked for full circle and for these sweet people I am eternally thankful.
