Light Blue & White Cake Smash | West Ashley Cake Smash Photographer

The first year is full of amazing growth. I was shocked when I heard about this sweet boy's birth - a surprise, early arrival while mom was at a wedding. He's come a long way from the tiny peanut he was and has grown into the most handsome toddler. While not the biggest fan of his cake, he did enjoy (quickly) playing in it... and making sure mom left covered in cake as well. Happy Birthday buddy! 

Messiest Cake Smasher | Downtown Charleston, SC 1st Birthday Milestone Session

I met this family bright and early for a session full of baby snuggles and cake eating in celebration of this little guy's first birthday. As soon as I pulled my camera out, he flashed me the best smile and I knew this was going to be a good session.

This was such a sweet family. It was apparent from the beginning of the session just how much they love each other- and how obsessed they are with their baby! And it turns out that our husbands work together and we have a few mutual friends. It's funny how small the world is!

We walked around Downtown Charleston and hit the "hot spots"- Rainbow Row and Waterfront Park- and then headed to White Point Gardens for some cake.

You would never know from the pictures, but K didn't actually eat any cake! He might win the title for "Messiest Cake Smasher Who Didn't Actually Eat Any Cake." He loved running his hands through the cake though.

K, I hope you have a wonderful dinosaur birthday party and that year #2 is full of many wonderful memories!
