Melina’s cake smash is probably one of my top sessions to date! What an adorable little girl! She was all smiles from the beginning to the end with her family rooting her on and singing her counting songs while wishing her a happy first birthday. It truly was a party with the Spanish music that just made you want to get up and dance and she thought so too breaking out adorable smiles. She wasn’t so sure about the cake but did dip in a finger or two and in one of the pictures you can see her trying to take a bite right out of the top. Her favorite part of this cake smash was by far the bath tub pictures at the end. She sure did make a splash and had no problem getting the floor completely soaked, giggling the entire time!
I know Melina’s mom is going to absolutely adore these photos! We kept sneaking peeks at the back of the camera through out the session and we loved every photo! When I first talked to Melina’s mom, she told me right off the bat how excited she was to get these photos taken. She had already had 3 beautiful boys, but wanted a little girl to complete her amazing family. I just had to joke that poor little Melina would never get a date until she was at least 30 with three older brothers and of course her protective father.
We decided on the theme together to match her bedroom decor. I had been toying with the idea of making these pin wheels and when I showed a sample to Mom, she was in whole-hearted agreement that we needed these for the session. This session took place at her home in South Jersey in the middle of her living room with natural light streaming through the two windows. I feel parents have a much easier time getting ready for the session when they take place in their own home. Right after the session as I was breaking down my set-up, Mom brought Melina up to get a proper bath and put her to nap. See easy-peasy for both parents and baby. I am an on location photographer and I travel to you within a 30 mile radius of Sicklerville, NJ. Beyond that there is a small travel fee.
I can’t wait to take Melina’s portraits again! Contact me to schedule your South Jersey portraits.
