This family was all together for for the Jewish holiday of Passover. With a large, extended family of 25 people, it can be difficult to get everyone together, let alone for pictures! Lots of credit to these people, who managed to make it happen. They were a pleasure to photograph. We started off photographing each family and then took the great big, group photograph. I love the one of the grandparents with all the grandkids, they squeezed together for one big group hug. We got a few candid photos as well. With a large family, one hour flies by fast!

This family of four was so easy to photograph! The kids were extremely well-mannered and especially sweet toward their youngest sister. We headed to South Pointe Park before sunset. We initially took photographs on the side of the bay, where the water was blue and sun shining. Typical Miami weather, we headed to the beach where the wind was picking up and a bit of cloud cover settled in. Off we headed to the green hill, out of the wind’s mercy. We got some really nice portraits of the kids and some great shared moments of laughter. Luckily it started to rain just as the shoot was over! Luck was on our side.

1 Year Old Birthday Cake Smash in Miami!

She wanted to make sure she documented her daughter’s first birthday milestone. Life is too short, and before we know it, kids are 5, 10, 20 years old. You know that feeling when you stumble upon an old photo and you completely forgot that they ever looked like that?! The photos that show the relationship we had with a loved one are the ones I treasure most. And so I adore the photos from this session that show some hilarious moments with her mom and dad.

Her parents brought along a few outfit changes, balloons (that sadly flew away), and a gorgeous cake from Cake Lounge in Coral Gables. We started off with some family photos until their daughter began to warm up (she was shy in the beginning but that didn’t last too long!). They changed her into an adorable bikini and her dad began to play some music on his phone. She had us laughing so hard with her crazy-cute dance moves.

As the sun began to set, it was time for the cake smash. They had a crown for her that she quickly took off (all too common :), and then they placed the cake in front of her. What was so funny is that we were all expecting her to dive right in and begin devouring it…. but noooo instead she was wondering what is this?!

She took off the decorative “One” and then dipped her fingers in. Her parents were cheering her on to eat it! But the dirty, sticky fingers were just too much. She began crying so her parents went over to console her and show her and delicious it was lol! She instead she began to happily feed it to her parents instead 🙂

This First Birthday Cake Smash session in Miami took place at South Pointe Park in South Beach, Florida before sunset. Read Everything you should know about Smash Cakes.

Some Cake Smash Tips to prepare for your session:

  1. Bring along a “nice” outfit plus another outfit that you don’t mind getting covered in cake (or let them go naked!)
  2. Feel free to bring along extra decorations (balloons with a weight, a blanket, etc.)
  3. Leave the cake smashing for the end of the session 🙂
