One Year Session - First Birthday Photoshoot - MA BABY PHOTOGRAPHER - Cake Smash Session - Dandelion Wild Photography

Ummm…I’m sorry but is he not the cutest baby you have ever seen in your entire life?

He has a personality to match too. He just smiles and smiles and smiles and I swear he’s going to be one of those sweet talkers when he’s older. I mean that boy is going to get away with everything. I mean come on…how does a mom say no to that sweet little mug.

I was lucky enough to capture Alex a few days after he was born. He was so cute then, but I had no idea he’d be THIS cute now. Mom pulled him out of the car and I nearly lost it. I love a good head of curls and baby blue eyes. Heck…I swoon over all babies. Every baby has something special about them and I’m not going to let parents go home without knowing what that is. Baby fever is not a sickness. It’s a disease people. A DISEASE! Once you have it, it NEVER EVER goes away. If you say you don’t want anymore kids…HA! I bet if I put one in your arms and told you he was yours you’d look at me all doe eyed with your bottom lip trembling and turn on your heels and run.

I love babies. There is just something about them. Unfortunately, I’ve passed my love for babies onto both my daughters. They’re like me only 10x worse. My youngest would go up to strangers and try taking their baby out of the little carrier without permission. She’s pretty stealthy and I’ve let her get as close to getting the chest clip and one buckle undone and then I’m running over to divert the situation. I don’t take my eyes off my children, you shouldn’t either. Take it as a lesson to you and be grateful she didn’t steal your baby. Because if she made it back to me we wouldn’t give him back! Well…at least until it’s time to go home and then we kindly return him because well…kidnapping is quite illegal…and I’m not about to go to jail simply because there are no babies there.

My oldest gets a baby in her arms and if you go anywhere near her she’ll let you know exactly how she feels about it. My shy little girl will negotiate her way into one more hour of baby snuggles while you wait babyless near by wondering what just happened. They are the two biggest baby hogs of them all. Get all three of us in the room and we play pass the baby until it’s time to go home. I don’t even care if they poop. I’ll change them. I have no problems with puke either. I mean obviously the most precious things in this world are going to do the two most disgusting things in this world, because well…nothing in this world comes easy and why should babies.

Look at this baby. Just look at him! Even his eyes smile.

Dandelion Wild Photography - One Year Cake Smash - Central Massachusetts Photographer - You Are My Sunshine Theme Cake Smash

So this was the cutest cake smash ever! This You Are My Sunshine theme really pulled at my heart strings.  That song is a song my Grandmother would always sing to me. I was always her Sunshine to her.  She would hold me close when I was sad...or even just because...and sing in a deep voice so I could feel the vibrations of her voice. It was the most soothing thing and it's something I always remember.

When I met little Kinsley, it was very clear to me why they chose this theme.  Not only could she replace the sun baby on Teletubbies (We literally just got Nick Jr. three days ago...and I can not believe Teletubbies is back...really?!) but Kins literally came over and once she was inside it rained.  I'm not even joking.  Ok...it rained throughout most of the day....but I think she might just possibly have some control over the sun. ;)

Mom and Dad just adore this little queen bee. She is the absolute sunshine in their life. I feel like there is something extra special about her though.  I couldn't exactly pin point it...but it was the feeling in the room as I watched her parents look at her, soothe her, dance for her, sing to her, make faces at her, and love on her.  There's just something about her and it's wonderful!  This family was very kind and I felt like I've known them for years, though only moments.

Since it was a rainy day, we decided to leave out family photos and reschedule them for another day. It was all about the babe for the day. She was such a good girl and was very sweet.

She loved her cake! She definitely preferred the frosting! She made us all laugh and laugh as she played the cake like a drum.  She got a kick out of us laughing and laughed too. 

She was a lot of fun and it was such a great way to spend a rainy morning. <3 What could be better than spending it photographing a happy baby girl digging into some cake??? <3

Happy Birthday! <3

 

One Year Cake Smash - Massachusetts Photographer - Dandelion Wild Photography - Monster Cake Smash

This gorgeous family came to see me this morning! They brought me a birthday boy who was the HAPPIEST little guy! I mean..I'm pretty sure life is good for him.  He didn't have a single complaint...well...until we decided that was enough cake.  Let's just say...he let us know exactly how he felt about that.

Boys always get all the good stuff when it comes to genetics.  Like does he really NEEEEED those beautiful eyes? No! He's already a handsome little devil.  We all agreed he's going to break his fair share of hearts.  So can't all of us girls have the big beautiful eyes....the perfect corkscrew curls...the super long eyelashes...and all the other good stuff the boys get!!! lol <3

Oh those eyes...<3 Greyson babe, you can keep them.  They look best on you anyway! <3

So! His birthday theme was the CUTEST! And if you have been following my instagram, then you probably saw all the prep I did to get it ready! I share most things on instagram so if you haven't already get your cute little self on over there and follow me!  DandelionWild <--- Username. :)

I cut out these cute little monster guys and Amanda over at Cakes by Amanda made him this adorable monster cake! If I hadn't had Amanda's cake before...then I'd almost say that it was almost too good looking to eat....BUT...You can't not eat Amanda's cakes no matter how cute they are. <3 Just ask Greyson.

Cake Smashes are one of my favorite sessions to photograph.  Afterwards, I like to think that babies leave here thinking that this was the best day of their life. <3
