Little Dinosaur Cake Smash & Splash!

At the end of a year of milestone photos, we just had one more photo session left to finish Declan's first year of photos - his Smash & Splash 1st birthday session! It's so fun to have this celebratory session cap off the end of your baby's first year and the beginning of the rest of their birthdays for life!

Declan loved dinosaurs so much so his parents knew it had to be a little dinosaur cake smash with his ducky bubble bath splash. Having done a test run at his birthday party, we weren't too surprised when he wanted nothing to do with the cake and kept walking away from it lol! 

But as his parent knew he would, Declan absolutely LOVED his bubble bath splash! He is a little fish out of water and we got the cutest expressions and smiles during the bath part of the Smash & Splash. 

Love that we did family photos from newborn to 1st birthday at every milestone session too! Seeing this family grow together during Declan's first year was one of the highlights of our year!


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!

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!

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?!
