Hazel was turning one and her mom had the best idea! Instead of the traditional cake smash, she switched things up. A trip to Duchess Bake Shop (an Edmonton favourite), a box of their famous macaroons, and they were ready. I mean, what’s better than a macaroon smash?!
The set up was beautiful, the session low key and relaxed. We added in Hazel’s brother for some photos (which we always think is a great idea!) and we captured some family photos as well. Hazel’s mom wanted the photos to be earthy but classy, casual but girly. I think we found the perfect balance.
I absolutely love when moms have a vision for their photos. It’s totally cool if you don’t, but I love collaborating and making their vision come to life.
When you’re planning your child’s one year session feel free to get creative! We love cake smashes, but these unique ideas are always welcome in our studio.
