When we met baby Aerin a few months ago over the Holiday Season, we absolutely fell in love with her!  And we’re glad that she and her mommy fell in love with us too – enough to bring her back to our Los Angeles photo studio again for her big first birthday milestone!!

We had so much fun planning this session together, too.  This momma knew she wanted her sweet little baby girl in hot pink, so she custom ordered a tutu, pearls and first birthday crown from Etsy, along with these incredible confetti-filled balloons!  The balloons were also the inspiration for Aerin’s cake which we ordered from our new favorite bakery, Top Tier Treats located in Los Angeles, California, just up the street from our photography studio.  The simple pastel polka dots were the perfect match to Aerin’s set. We are obsessed with how these photos turned out. The contrast of this baby’s girl’s rich skin tone with the hot pink and bright white background is simply stunning!

Aerin did so well for the “cake smash” portion of her session, and she kept smiling up a storm for us as we moved on to the “splash” portion of her photoshoot.  This sweet girl has so much personality and she was not shy about sharing all different sides of it with us!  Including the naked tooshy side!! 🙂

Thank you for all of your sweet smiles, Aerin!
