I just adore this storyboard we created from Maeve’s One year cake smash session! How cute must this be hanging in her bedroom??
We always do a regular mini session first too, before letting the birthday girl loose on the cake.
I always encourage parents to be in a few photos with their new baby. Actually, I don’t really give them a choice ;) There’s no pressure to order them, but if we never photograph these images in the first place, you don’t have the option later on. And trust me, baby will want to see you in photos with them when they’re older, they will cherish these more than anything.
