St Louis Cake Smash Photography Session

Birthday, Cake Smash, Milestone
I truly enjoy cake smash sessions because I get to be hands-on and create different setups each time. This cake smash session was very special to me because I had the pleasure of capturing this little one's newborn photos. I'm always grateful when previous clients return. It’s exciting to see them grown up and into their personalities. This little one's name is Aria. She was 7 weeks old in her newborn photos. I was extremely nervous about our session because of her age but it was successful. Her newborn session almost reached 1k reactions on Facebook… I would say that went viral lol.

Before our session started, Aria’s mother informed me that Aria is teething and wasn’t feeling too well. We move the session back about 2 hours… I wanted to ensure that Aria was feeling her best! Aria came in with all smiles! Her shirt was made by her father. Her tutu was from Amazon. The setup is done by Lenore’s Lens. The cake is by Jamell at Sugar Bakery.

Aria sat down and her mother goes “ You’re one mama” Aria does this… too adorable. 

Here are a few more of my favorites of her enjoying her cake!

We had a second shoot for her. I wanted to create a dark moody setup since her birthday session was so bright and fun. I love how melanin her skin is. She is absolutely beautiful. Check them out.
