Let’s Eat Cake (or not) | Southern York County Pennsylvania Newborn & Family Photographer

Posted on / Posted in Babies, Cake Smashings

I have enjoyed seeing this little girl every couple of months over the last year!  She came to me for her newborn session and she came to see me at 3 months, 6 months and 9 months.  Of course, she also came to commemorate her 1 year birthday on her actual birthday which was so awesome.  Not every one year old session needs to include a cake smashing, but this mom wanted to have a cake smashing.  Normally that is not a problem; however, this little girl has some food allergies so the trick was to just let her play with it, and not eat it.  It was all good!

Pink & Gray Birthday Session | Southern York County Pennsylvania Newborn & Family Photographer

I was so lucky to photograph this little girl as my first newborn in 2014.  It is so hard to believe that she is already one! She was one serious little girl, but we were able to get a few smiles out of her.  Even though I love a good cake smashing to celebrate the first birthday, this is a great example of how you don’t need to do a cake smashing.  I love the pink and gray combination, and the purple is so gorgeous on her darker complexion.

When I met this family for the first time, I instantly knew I was going to love them.  We all pray that we have a healthy baby, but the reality is that not all babies will be healthy.   Unfortunately, this little girl had a rough start to her little life, but she was blessed with some awesome parents.  I can’t imagine everything her parents had to deal with and how many emotions that they’ve experienced.  I am sure that this past year has gone so quickly for them because of everything they’ve had to do, but I am sure that there are times that it has felt like a lifetime as well.  And now here they are celebrating her first birthday.  Planning a first birthday is so much fun. But I imagine that planning a first birthday for your little girl who  faced a year filled with hospitals and doctors and a different set of milestones than most babies, the celebration of a first birthday is a much more emotional experience and one of great celebration for very different reasons.  She is one . . . one beautiful little, one awesome little girl, one loved little girl.  She is ONE!

Sometimes things happen that don’t make it possible for someone to come in for a newborn session.  Sometimes it can be months before they can make it happen.  And, even though photographing a baby that is just a couple months old can be challenging and limiting, it’s okay.  You only need a couple of pictures to capture a moment in life.  I thought this little guy would be more like a newborn because he was born a little early, but he was big and strong and active and adorable.  I still love the faux-hawk.
