First Birthday and Smash Cake Photos

May 21, 2013


Mama loves to throw parties, but with Jordi’s recent baptism, my trip to Chicago and Jose’s trip to Kansas City, there was no time left for a first birthday bash. I had mother’s guilt, “No first birthday party?!?!” Luckily, I found a great local photographer about a month before Jordi’s big day. She suggested we do smash cake photos. I did a little research and decided that would be fun!!! I’m so happy with the results. Thank you to Tatyana at Pine Terrace Photography for everything! Here are a few photos…












I love the last picture. It’s like he’s thinking, “This is awesome!” jajaja! Pictures of the brothers to come soon!

    I’ve never done a cake smash with my older children. I have been seeing more and more people do it and I think it’s super cute. Definitely want to try it for Sofie’s first bday

      Caro, I didn’t do it with my older two either. I think it’s a trend? I felt guilty not doing the party!!!! So glad we have these now. xoxo

    First of all sorry I have not been in your blog for a while, I ve been in lala land working very slow and running out of time to do read, since the weather is been nice Frankie wants be out all day playing and he wants me to be involved so I can’t even sit out to relax, plus I’ve been gardening a lot. Anyway, amazing pictures I love the cake smashing a friend did that at her daughter’s first birthday with an extra cake she had I think it’s a cool idea. You look beautiful like always!!
