Graham Turns One: Cake Smash Session
Port Washington Photographer
Sweet Graham just turned one, and we celebrated with a cake smash session, of course. I’ve been his Port Washington Photographer since he was a newborn. For his newborn session, I photographed him wearing an acorn hat in a hollowed out log, there is an acorn theme going here just wait you will see. 🙂 So it was only fitting that he sat on that same log for his one-year photo session. Graham’s smash cake was quite special as well. His Grandma had the fantastic idea to save and freeze the cake topper from his baby shower, a beautiful cake from Delicately Delicious in Cedarburg . What a wonderful tradition! As if this wasn’t poignant enough, this beautiful cake was decorated with fondant acorns. How cool is that?!
I absolutely adore when family tradition can be woven into photo sessions. It’s also one of the perks of finding a family photographer and maintaining a relationship with them throughout the years. I love to refer back to previous photos and weave little details into the stories of your photos. Not to mention we build a rapport, and a create a level of comfort that will show in your photographs. After all, the more relaxed and comfortable we all are, the better your photos turn out.
Graham has the sweetest mom and dad, Grant and Katie, a family that I have loved getting to know. They have even trusted me to photograph their beloved, and incredibly well behaved Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Apollo. (Say that breed three times fast!) Apollo is one of those overachievers that make my 3 Scout, Charlie, and Bo look bad, real bad.
Graham is such a happy little guy, and he is becoming a big brother in October. I’m so excited to continue to photograph their family as it grows. I am so happy, and lucky to be their family photographer. I love watching young families grow. It is truly an honor to have families return to me year after year, child after child. That’s what I do, I document happiness.
