Lil' Lumberjack Smash & Splash!

Aren't Camden's first birthday pictures too precious?! He's such a little sweetheart as a little lumberjack enjoying his first birthday cake at his Smash & Splash celebration. He has the best expressions! We love how much you can see his little personality emerge with his cute little baby self. Adorable!

Cake Smash ideas March edition:

Baby Lumber Jack, Little Sailor,
Pink & Gold Unicorn and Crimson & Gold. 

We love celebrating your baby's first birthday with a cake smash! And following that, a splash in our vintage 1940s tub. We call them Smash & Splash sessions! 

We also always include a family session and classic 1st birthday pictures at the beginning of your session. Following that, we do the Smash & Splash! Kristi is very experienced and makes all of these photos timeless and beautiful. The session itself only lasts and hour and a half so your birthday baby doesn't get tired of all the fun!

We always provide the cake, balloons and most decorations - you bring the outfit and any personal items you want to include. We decide on all the fun colors and theme at our pre-session consultation when we get to meet you and your family and talk about all the details!

Declan's First Year

By the end of his first year of photos, even Declan's parents were saying he almost looked like a different baby! That little bit of strawberry blond hair turned into a LOT of red hair.

We love capturing a baby's milestones in their first year, and Declan is no exception! He was walking by 8 months so in his 9 month photos, he was already standing on tubs and running away from the camera lol!

And so many expressions. Declan and his family ended up with a beautiful album from his baby milestone sessions. Almost every 3 month session included a series of his changing expressions. So many moments we captured in Declan's first year that now will be easier for his parents to remember with these pictures.

A Baby's First Year - Video Review

Extra, Extra, Read All About It! 

Or in this case, watch the video. ;)

Some great clients of ours recently sat down with us and told us about their experience first hand working with us for their little boy's whole first year of photos. From maternity to newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year Smash & Splash first birthday celebration, Kristi documented all these important milestones in Declan's life. 

It's amazing to see how much a baby changes in their first year of life. We hear so often by the end of the first year - that doesn't even look like the same baby!

Babies go from being immobile to tummy time to sitting up on their own, standing and walking all in just their first year! And in Declan's case, he was walking by 8 months so we had extra time to capture that amazing feat so early in his life.

So take a look below at working with Kristi Williams Photography - a Baby's First Year!

One of our favorite locations to make beautiful portraits is Rock Ledge Ranch. It is a historic ranch with so many different options - a white barn, blacksmith's shop, old houses, pine trees, open fields and a beautiful view of Garden of the Gods without being right up against the red rocks. 

Collin's family chose this beautiful location for their family portraits and Collin's Smash & Splash! The cake smash theme was Mickey Mouse and it was cute! He was so adorable in his outfit - complete with suspenders. You just have to see these sweet photos! 

A great Colorado theme and fun Mickey Mouse rolled into one! What's not to love?!
