If there’s one thing we see a lot of around here, it’s smiley babies! But in truth, we see it all – smiley babies, shy babies, upset babies, you name it! But Miss Austyn exceeded our expectations with her big smiles and personality during her first birthday cake smash photo shoot!

The very first time we met during her session design consultation, she was the happiest little girl, and I knew that we needed to plan an amazing shoot for her. The colors for her session were inspired by an outfit that mom had ordered from an Etsy shop: a white and gold “one” onesie along with some little bloomers and pink and teal chevron leggings – so darling! But we knew that we wanted to girly her up a bit more for the cake smash portion of the session, and nothing says girly like sequins! With our color scheme in mind, (teal, pink, cream and gold), we styled up a little color pop for the background, a cream lace skirt, gold birthday crown, and completed the styling with a custom SusieCakes smash cake. It was the perfect combination of birthday celebration meets girly princess!

For Austyn’s final look, she rocked a ‘boho baby’ look on our Summer Set. And just when we thought she was done smiling and putting on a show for us, this little lady pulled out her big personality again and brought it home with some amazing storytelling images on the Bohemian Camper Set.
