How To Have A Successful Cake Smash Session | Denver Children Photographer

First Birthday Photography Session

What is more entertaining than letting your little one go at it with a cake for the first time? Catching it on camera of course! Here are our tips on how to have a successful one year cake smash portrait session!

First Birthday Photography

1. The cake! Something baby sized is always perfect. Be careful on your icing color choices though because some of the brighter is a bit hard to get off of baby!

2. The attire. Fancy clothes or no clothes both are great ways to celebrate your baby’s big day!

3. Expressions. The best part of a one year session is how many different expressions we can get. A one year session can sometimes be overwhelming.

4. Clean up. Don’t worry about it, we got you!

5.Where to display the photos. This session will be one for the memory books, your wall and all of social media! Hang up those memories so you can look back and smile everyday. I love filling my walls with my favorite memories! Where is your favorite place to display your photos?

1. Cake. Finishing off a one year session with a cake smash is completely memorable. You get a wide variety of expressions and very colorful photos!

2. Party Hats. Sometimes they stay on the head, sometimes they don’t! But they always make for a funny and cute photo!

3. Balloons. Who doesn’t love balloons? I know they are my favorite! They bring such a fun splash of color to any session, birthday or regular!

Family Fun in the Sun | Denver Family Photographer

Guys! I am so excited to share this session with you! Our H Family came in for their 6 months Tiny Sprouts appointment and we wanted to go up to our Highlands Park because it was such a beautiful day! I had even brought in this colorful blanket from home to hopefully use for the session because it is totally Insta-gramable! Am I right?!

Well Mama had some awesome props too!

Are you not totally in love with a naked baby under a gorgeous lace?! Grandma wanted to use it in the photo and I was so excited to create these images plus get the little on to smile in the mirror! She loves looking at her self…and DAD!

Last but certainly not least, JUST LOOK at how mom and dad are gazing at each other in this photo! #swoon! And the color of baby’s romper and the blanket went perfectly together!

Mama and I were on the same page for this session! I cannot wait to see what we create for the one year shoot!

Want to create some magic?! I’m ready for you!

The Prego Expo | Denver Maternity Photographer

This past Sunday we packed up all of our gear and moved over to the Denver Convention Center where Bloom Portraits had their very first vendor booth at The Prego Expo!

What is The Prego Expo? A place where all things maternity and baby are featured! The event drew parents from across Colorado! It was so exciting to get out of the office and interact with excited parents to be!

The best part of my job is getting to meet and talk to new people. To grow with a family and create memories for them! So it was exciting to share my love of photography with parents who were searching for it!

We even had a GIF photo booth! It was a huge hit! It was so fun creating cute animated maternity announcements! What a unique way to share your good news! You can see some of them over on our Facebook and Instagram pages {don’t forget to like and follow!}. And if you came, thank you and your GIF gift should be in your email inbox now! If not, please feel free to contact us!

I look forward to the future of Bloom Portraits and a fresh start with some new families who many have not known about us before.
