LETS GO ROCCO!!! This first birthday photography session was so much fun and this little guy had a ton of spirit!

It was definitely no big surprise that Rocco’s first birthday cake smash would be a New York Rangers themed hockey smash. Dad is a HUGE Rangers fan and both elements were incorporated into both Rocco’s newborn and now of course, his first birthday photography session.

When it came to set design, we didn’t have to search far for any props. Dad came equipped with a car-load full of hockey equipment and NYR paraphernalia. Our jobs are easy- we just added the puffs and the cake!  The session with a few shots of Rocco in his classic, NYR Jersey and then we moved him into his oversized, personalized toy bucket. He had so much fun standing and jumping around.. he was prepped and all fired up for his smash.

Okay, so maybe we spoke too soon. Once in front of the cake and all dressed in his NYR diaper cover and suspenders, Rocco was less than excited to dig into his cake. Cake goals he definitely did not! But none-the-less, we still had a great time and we even coaxed Rocco into playing and getting a little messy with his cake.

Our first birthday photography and cake smash session also includes classic portraits, which we took advantage of and did full family photos. Big sister Gianna, who is also a previous newborn and cake smash client, joined in on the fun and gave it her all. She loved sharing the spotlight with her little brother!

Mom outfitted Rocco in denim overalls and a cute little hat. No one year old is a fan of head gear, and Rocco was no different. We did manage to sneak in a few cute shots before he realized it was on his head. He was such a happy little guy and gave us all his playful smiles and laughs. These are the sessions we live for and there’s nothing better then a happy baby!
