Baby's First Year and Beyond

A Gorgeous, Pastel Cake Smash Session at the Looking Up Photography Studio

Cake Smash

We are looking forward to spring, and what better way to do that than with a gorgeous studio cake smash session! Before COVID, I had the pleasure of doing many beautiful cake smash sessions, so I was excited to photograph this fun shoot with baby Reagan. All the balloons, and Reagan’s sweet smiles, gave me such a sense of normalcy as I photographed this session. One of my favorite vendors provided the cake, and you can find her information linked below. I couldn’t have been more honored that Kristen chose me to capture this milestone!

Let’s start off with a gorgeous frock – always a good place to start if you ask me! Kristen is responsible for picking out this beauty. I love both the classic design and the modern and punchy watercolors. We also got Reagan in a crisp white headband, which perfectly accented her cute little features!

Take a closer look at how expressive she is.

We captured so many beautiful photos – it was heaven! The light in my studio never disappoints and helps me bring the pretty. The two different outfits for Reagan were the sweetest ensembles that any baby girl would look incredible in. The balloon color combinations were fun and unique, especially when paired with gold accents. I’m always excited when I get to deck out the studio in such springy colors. I love it all! Such a lovely way to spend a day in the studio. What a dream!
