Who doesn’t love a party?  In this case, a fiesta!  We threw a colorful and fun fiesta for this adorable little boy’s first birthday Cake Smash and Splash Portrait Session in our Los Angeles, California studio!  The Pod Photography studio has never seen so much color!  And, of course, we had to include maracas and a backdrop scene that looked like it was straight out of a beautiful Cinco de Mayo celebration!  With vibrant colors and a colorful banner,  we danced and sang “Feliz Cumpleaños”!

First Birthday Cake Smash and Splash

Documenting your baby’s first birthday with a customized portrait session is a great way to keep precious memories fresh.  The first year of your baby’s life goes by so fast!  That’s what makes the First Birthday Cake Smash and Splash so unique!  Keep those memories alive for years to come.

This portrait session included a cake smash as well as a bathtub splash.  Here at The Pod Photography, the cake smash and the bathtub splash go hand in hand.  Some babies dive into their cakes, and it can get messy!  The bathtub splash is a great way to clean them up and, at the same time, create a different portrait experience.

Fiesta Themed Portrait Session Baby Outfit and Cake

We chose a traditional white and gold Mariachi Baby Outfit with a traditional sombrero for this cutie’s outfit.  Is he not the most adorable thing you have ever seen?  Look at those rosy cheeks.

The birthday cake displayed bold colors and was decorated with cactuses on top. It sat on a navy blue cake pedestal.  This little fellow did not immediately smash his cake. He was too fascinated by the cactus cake topper!

Bathtub Splash Session

The second part of the portrait session was the Bathtub Splash Session.  The backdrop was transformed from a colorful fiesta look to a  peaceful, green forest backdrop with beautiful sun rays peeking through the trees.

We then added a pop of vibrant yellow and real lemons, which coordinated perfectly with the backdrop.  The baby boy’s beautiful reddish-toned hair stood out against the green hues in the backdrop. This little cutie loved the lemons!  The photographer even caught this cutie on camera sneaking a taste of a lemon without even making a yucky face!
