This simple but elegant cake smash to celebrate baby Reagans first birthday was so cute! Simple white backdrop with an elegant pink ombre cake and adorned with fresh florals and a matching handmade fresh flower crown. Spray roses are of some of my favorites! I love helping parents design florals and the simple set for the cake smash. I love how we went with a simple and elegant with a pop of pink for her!

Reagan was a dainty little one.  We took some photos of her newfound skills- crawling and then we let her explore her cake. She has a dairy intolerance so this cake was all dairy free and still so delicious made by the one and only Gourmet cakes and more! Reagan’s mom watched and waited for Reagan to dive in and devour the cake because even though she is small, she is a big eater! Well, to her surprise, Reagan didn’t like the texture of the cake and would cringe at a single touch. She seemed like she wanted to try it but she didn’t want to touch it. Her mom made a suggestion… and … we gave her a fork and she dove in.. okay well, delicately dove in! She loved playing around with the fork and that made it much more intriguing and familiar for her and equally as adorable and memorable!

After her cake smash she washed off in the milk bath. This was BY FAR her favorite part of the session. She splashed so hard the entire floor was SOAKED with overflow from the bucket. It was hilarious and adorable. Just take a look at these photos in her clean up session, she was having a BLAST!

Happy birthday sweet baby Reagan. It has been my pleasure photographing you throughout your first year from sweet and small newborn, to full of smiles and exploration sitting, to the BIG one year old milestone. I loved to watch your personality grow and your smiles grow even bigger. You are a sweet little one!  I hope you enjoy your birthday party and dive into the cupcakes!
