  • Baby Willow // Anchorage Portrait Studio

    Cake smash sessions for 1 year olds are always so much fun. I absolutely love being in the downtown Anchorage studio for these, as we have so much more room! It’s super fun to get a few shots with mom (or dad – or both!) as well – I love having those over the years – to show the progression of growth. Kids grow SO fast!! The first year especially…

    This adorable family came all the way from Valdez to have her portraits made – and being from a coastal city, Little miss Willow has a mermaid theme going on in her room- so of course we needed to incorporate all those delicious colors. The teal/purple combo might be my new favorite. SO pretty!!

    BUT – my favorite part of this session was incorporating a milk bath after the cake smash. I don’t know why I haven’t thought of doing this before – but it was SO adorable! And the perfect way to clean up after smashing frosting all over your face…

    I’ll be including this little after cake option with all my 1 year smashes point forward. And really for all milestones sessions, as long as babies can sit up of course.
