What does a first birthday session at my white, natural light Boston Baby Photography studio look like?

Your baby + your family + cake

Your Baby

At this age baby is on the move and full of personality.  We are able to capture a wonderful range of expressions and emotions from serious looks to smiles, excitement and giggles. 

Your Family

Parents are baby’s whole world at this age.  In addition to the classic everyone looking at the camera shot we capture the way you snuggle and laugh together. This session was mom and baby only, but dads are also always welcome! 

The Cake Smash

Cake is optional at first birthday sessions but encouraged for a few reasons: 

-This age is all about exploring and most babies explore cake like they would anything else.  They touch.  They taste.  They make a mess.  The reactions are unique to your baby’s personality and capture the essence of this stage of babyhood 

-A cake gives active, on the go babies a reason to stay in one place for photos. At my studio I have an antique white high chair for baby to sit in for the cake smashing portion of the session.  

-Eating cake is an iconic birthday milestone, perfect for party invitations, thank you cards, first year albums and a spot on the wall
