Well….a year sure does go by quickly. It seems like only a short while ago that I was taking this little guy’s newborn photos. Preston first came here when he was about 6 – weeks old. I have the pleasure of teaching with his mom, and when I would see her waddling around the school, I would giggle to myself. She taught in the classroom across the hall from mine, and when she reached the point where she was super close to having P-man, I would peek in her classroom to make sure she was alright! She was, and didn’t have her little guy until she actually went off for her maternity leave. I was so thrilled when she asked to bring him in for newborn photos, and even more thrilled when they decided to go with the Baby’s First Year program. P-man has been coming to the studio for the past year, and now I had the chance to photograph his first birthday celebrations…with a cake smash, of course!! Here are some of him dressed up, and undressed; looking dashing and then doing some smashing (hehe, I’m not sure what’s going on with the rhymes, but I kind of like it!)
Love love the little man suit!! So cute!
I love his facial expression in this photo!
Let the smashing begin!
When we would sing Happy Birthday to Preston, he would finish it off by throwing his arms up in the air and yelled, “YAY!!!” Cutest thing ever!
I put his foot in the cake to encourage him to get all messy, and this was the look I got. Priceless.
Once the babies realize they’re ALLOWED to dig into the cake and get all messy, they give us some big and fun grins…inbetween bites, of course!
Proud of his smashing work!
A cake smash just isn’t the same without ending it by sitting on the cake! This was such a fun session, and I’ve had a great year with P-man and his famiy. I love getting to see them grow up, although it is sad to realize how fast the time does go by and just how quickly they do get big. I can’t wait to continue you watch him grow! Thank you three 🙂
